Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will assist you. Did the steering wheel lock immediately after the light came on?

Expert:  Joshua Haynes replied 1 month ago.

EPS stands for electronic power steering, and when that light comes on, it indicates that there is a problem with the power steering (as if you didn't know by the locked wheel :-)). It also means that there is a code stored in the power steering module, which should be easily scanned with a high level scan tool. It will be necessary to get that code to accurately begin diagnostics on your condition. However, there are two fuses in the under hood fuse panel that are worth checking: both are labeled mdps fuses and one is 80 amp and the other is 10 amps. If either one are blown, it will cause this problem.

Hi, I am sorry I was having trouble with my computer. I am not able to take a call at this time, but the next step would be to have the computer scanned. Is there a shop around you that would be willing to just give you the code?
