Power steering light came on and car was hard to start. Eps.

Customer Question
Power steering light came...

Power steering light came on and car was hard to start

Mechanic's Assistant: When was the fluid last checked? Have you heard any whining noises while turning the wheel?

Eps

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Toyota?

Corolla S 2014

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Corolla yourself? What have you tried so far?

I'd like to fix it myself but can't connect why eps light comes on and it roles over slow like a dead battery. I checked the voltage on the battery and it appears ok at 12.5V when running it's 14.5 V so alternator must be OK as well

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Is there a recall on this issue. I did see one for Toyota but not corolla

Can you get someone to check for codes as there may be one in the body ECU , so some basic entry code readers may not have the function to pull these up. After you get this code we can proceed to find the issue. As it is late I will check back with you tomorrow.

Toyota Mechanic: Peter Bagley, Auto Service Technician replied 7 months ago

did you use a code reader capable of checking body codes? let me know and I will check our shop manuals for this issue and diagnostic procedures . Will have this info tomorrow after work if that is ok?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Never mind. I may as well just take it to the shop and let them do it. The auto parts places don't have the right diagnostic equipment for all the codes and repair places all charge. I have no doubt you could tell me what to fix if you had the code. However if I have to pay for the diagnostic they may as well fix it
Toyota Mechanic: Peter Bagley, Auto Service Technician replied 7 months ago

If you like I can check our shop books for another way you may be able to perform to isolate the problem . Will check right now and get get back to you.
