Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

The power steering control module on the electronic steering models is a common component that fails and causes this here.Usually a fault code sets for this module failing needing replaced.If you have not had the codes checked using a scan tool that can read all computers in your model this needs done.A code will be set that will help diagnose and locate this issue here.But with the electronic steering it is usually the power steering control module needing replaced.
