Hello, my name is***** you for the question. As long as the EPS light is on the steering will not function. You will need to read the EPS module using the correct scan tool to know for sure what is going on. Most of the time this is caused by a failure in the steering angle sensor in the steering column, but not always. Please let me know if you need more help.

Where is the steering angle sensor is located and can it be used how much more less ? And if I work on cars is it easy to be replaced ?
Thanks!

It is located in the steering column. It would have to be a new install and a then a factory scan tool would be needed to calibrate it.

Is there anybody, I brought my Lexus RX 400h 2006 to local
Hi there, I brought my Lexus RX 400h 2006 to local dealership to change the dashboard due to the company recall. The car was driving perfectly fine and I handed it over at the end of the day. Next day I have received 3 messages from the manager who told me the cooling liquid is leaking, the motor is overheated and the car needs to be towed out of dealership. He did not offer to test and repair it, but in 3 subsequent messages requested it to tow out home. When I got the car there was no extra lights on dashboard and it was driving like usual for the first 5 miles. Then all possible lights on the dashboard went up and the car was not reacting to gas pedal. Also, it was showing several messages like “check the hybrid system”, “maintenance required” and others. When I stopped the car it was not turning on again. I did not see the high motor temperature or leaking radiator. The coolant level was still high. I towed the car home. What should I do? It looks very suspicious that dealership did not want to test the car and strongly advised it not to drive and rather tow, because I can damage the motor, like they knew something in advance. Even when manager was talking to me he pronounced the test is $240, but this is expensive. Better tow it out. What should I do?… read more
