The EPS light has come on my dashboard and the steering has become very heavy. what does this mean


The electronic power steering (EPS) Warning Light is located on the instrument panel. This light illuminates when the EPS is malfunctioning. When this light is lit, your steering may be a little heavier, and you should schedule an inspection as soon as possible. Tip The EPS Warning Light briefly illuminates when the car is first turned on. The light is only a problem if it stays lit for an extended period.

Steering is hard to turn ?


You most likely have one of two things going on here, the steering gear is defective or the power steering pump is defective (I assume the fluid is full). If the steering gear is the problem it may only be hard to turn in one direction, if the PS pump is the problem then it is always hard to turn no matter which way the car is turned. In the future please include the make, model, year and engine type of the vehicle so I can give you an answer that is directly related to your vehicle..

Periodically, EPS comes on Dashboard ,then steering becomes too hard, this will disappear two to three times re start the vehicle or running few meters and switch off the car and re start the car.


well I can't drive it and see all symptoms.
i can't see the idle speed drop below 800 RPM,. !
if the idle drops real low, then engine shakes, and PS gets weaker.
Id ignore the EPS till such time as all other things are perfect.
ever get an engine tuneup this decade?
low engine RPM , top number 1 cause is owners not servicing their cars. (spark plugs bad tops that list)
if you ignore that, tuneup the engine WILL misfire and RPM will drop and P/s (means power steering)will get weak (the assist is pump driven) and then the engine can stall.
i bet you also forgot to say the steering got weak
park or coming to a stop with foot off throttle.
do the head lights dim as this (bad) happens?
can you use your right foot to keep RPM above 800 and save stalls or near stalls?
IF RPM is ok, ?then check the fan belt next. (slips)
or buy a new on, my guess is 11 year old belt is kinda hopeless case.

HARD AND STIFF STEERING


It won't hurt to drive it. Steering will just be stiffer without the power steering. Once you are moving, it will be easier to steer.
Don't know the problem, a shop will have to check it out. But it is okay to drive it.

Why does the car drag when changing gears? the various lights on the dashboard are blinking and it shows EPS


EPS indicates Electronic power steering warning light.---------The power steering needs to be inspected.The power steering pump, the power steering fluid, the power steering hose ,power steering belt and pulley. Get your car scanned by the dealer or at local car garage.That will be much helpful.As you will receive codes, as per codes you can replace the part or get the part checked.A fault in the wiring loop causes it to short on the steering column.This problem is very much noticed in Hyundai cars.-------

This will solve the problem or point you towards the cause of problem. Thank you for using fixya.

What does EPS on the dashboard on a 2003 Suzuki Swift stand for please?


Its the Electronic Power Steering. When it lights up, let the power steering unit be check in a local repair shop.

The other system is hydraulic power steering - which is driven from a pump through a belt system. EPS is driven by the battery / alternator. Low battery or faulty alternator can cause the EPS to stop working properly.

First you have to check power steering fluid level, and if it's ok then you have to check power steering pump. If you have a EPS light on your dash, then you have to plug a ODBII diagnostic tool to read code and then interpret what the problem is.
