What does it mean if the Electronic Power Steering indicator comes on in the dash?
Your car is equipped with an electronic power steering system (EPS). This is very different from a conventional hydraulic system. If the Electronic Power Steering indicator in the dash comes on, there’s something wrong with the system. Here’s what you need to do:
Pull over somewhere safe
Turn off the engine
Start the engine again
If the EPS light comes back on and stays on, you need to have the car inspected
If you rev the engine while it’s idling, the EPS light may come on. It should go out shortly afterward.
