can you tell me if this problem has been answered as there is no email and nothing happens if i press text message alert. but it says the money has been processed.
Hello Joan

No nothing for you to check sorry
EPS is activated only when the driver steers the steering wheel, thus reducing energy loss compared with the hydraulics. .Basically its a electrically power steering to assist the driver to turn the steering wheel.
.
The light can light up if there a failure of the motor or any sensor is activated when this circuit has any problem.

Get it checked as the codes need reading to identify the problem.

However repair as soon as possible so as not to damage the system.

Thank you Peter
