Hello,

Thanks for using Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I have been an automotive technician for over 12 years now. And I am currently working at a Toyota Dealership.

I would just like to confirm, does your forester have electronic power steering? Also what does the light on your dashboard look like? and are you able to get the computers scanned for codes if neede?

Nelson
