 Description of the problemOn my way to work on august 8, 2013, i was on the freeway in the early morning rush hour traffic driving approximately 50 mph when my power steering went complete out and the eps light came. I took the vehicle to the hyundai dealership and after they inspected the vehicle, they indicated that it was a known issue and they had developed an update that they could upload it to to the computer responsible for the power steering in the vehicle. Once the update was run, the vehicle was driving like normal. This morning on july 4, 2014, i went to start my vehicle and was driving again in the early morning rush hour traffic, and low and behold the eps light came on again. I will be contacting the dealership first thing in the morning and asking they inspect the vehicle. I doubt that this time an update will fix the problem as it has occurred twice now and expect that it will cost tons to fix the vehicle. This time i have done research on various hyundai forums and just googling the term "eps light hyundai elantra 2009" and found that many individuals are experiencing the same issue with the eps light. This is a hazard and is something that needs to be investigated. It could cause someone serious injury if their power steering unexpectedly goes out on the freeway or in the middle of a turn.
