greetings, Very common for the fuse to blow after jump starting vehicle. There is a 80 amp fuse in the under hood junction block/fuse box that we should check first. If you have a test light or multi meter we can check each side for power. When changing this fuse the battery should be disconnected first(negative side). Let me know what you find

This vehicle uses an electric motor to assist with the steering, EPS. A few models use this design and they are known to have issues. I have seen a few blow fuses after jump starts.

I been doing my research going to get a fuse from the dealership and change it out I really hope this works. I was in Florida this weekend for a furneral when this happened. So know I have to make sure when playing music to crank my vehicle so this wont happen anymore

after I change this fuse out the stablitrak sensors will go off and the steering should be working again? What shall I do to make the sensor go off?
Expert:  ironmike replied 1 year ago.
The warning lights should go out. Good idea to let the battery stay disconnected for 10 minutes to clear codes. Good idea to recheck for codes after reconnecting the battery and after the test drive.
