 Description of the problemMy daughter received a shock upon placing her hand to the steering wheel. Thinking nothing of this she started the car and started to back out of the car port. When she needed to turn the steering wheel in order to exit the driveway the steering did not move or respond. Looking at the dash, a warning light was on "eps". The owner's manual had little to nothing to say about the eps warning. I decided to look at all the fuses, first inside the car and then in the engine compartment. None of the fuses were blown. I replaced the fuse compartment covers and started the car. The eps warning light went out this time and normal steering abilities are okay. What if this "shock" had happened when travelling at a high rate of speed? In the old days when power steering failed the driver could still turn the wheel with great effort, however i could not even turn the steering wheel 1/2 inch in either direction.
