 Description of the problemAs i was driving 30 mph, my power steering warning light went on and my power steering failed. Thankfully there was no one behind me so i stopped my car and restarted it again. I was able to turn right onto a side street and then immediately it happened again. I pulled over to the side and parked my car. After a couple of minutes, i stopped the car and started it again and was able to drive it back home (less than a mile) without further incident. I immediately called my local toyota dealership and they were very responsive to my concern especially since this could have caused a crash with my 4-year old child in the car. After i dropped off my car at the dealership, they ran an inspection and found a code c1554 power supply relay failure and replaced my power steering ecu assy. Although i'm glad this fix was covered under warranty, i will always have anxiety about it failing again especially since i've read other reports of steering failures in 2012 toyota camrys. Toyota says that this is the first line of camrys with their eps (electrical power steering) system. With it being a new system for toyota and based on the complaints i've read on 2012 toyota camry's eps, i urge a more in-depth investigation on this.
