 Description of the problemI left the house to pick up my daughter from daycare. Left the house to the daycare and everything was fine. When i left the daycare, started the car everything was good until i went to turn the wheel to get onto the main road and i received the warning light on the dash that said "check power steering system". Needless to say, my power steering was gone. I backed up, with turning the wheel hard, and turned the car off hoping it was fluke. Turned the car back on and same issue. Since i don't live too far from the daycare, i did drive home with my daughter in the car. Pulled in driveway and turned car off and on a few times and still an issue. Drove to local maintenance shop to investigate- they didn't get to it until next day..... No issues when they started the car! Appears others have had this same issue. I may take to local honda dealer for further diagnosis if issue persists, but i don't want power steering to go on the middle of the highway when hitting 65 miles / hour! Believe this is a safety issue for honda to investigate.
