EPS is activated only when the driver steers the steering wheel, thus reducing energy loss compared with the hydraulics. Its modular design allows for easy assembly. EPS consists of motor, electronic control unit (ECU), torque sensor and steering gear.

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.

Eps light on and steering become stiff in hyundai accent 2007


Take it to the dealer.
Your car uses an electric motor to provide power assisted steering instead of hydraulic fluid. The light means there is a problem and a code should be set in the computer memory.
The dealer is the best source for service.

Eps in hyundai accent 2007


EPS is Electronic Power Steering.

When the light comes on, it is a warning that the Electronic Power Steering system is having a problem.

The increased force you have to use, is because the EPS is not assisting you as much as it was before, if at all.

Here is a link to a video explaining the basic operation of the electronics at youtube.

EPS stands for Electric Power Steering. Hyundais have electric power steering instead of belt driven pumps. But they still require power steering fluid, Check the fluid to see if it is low. That would trigger the signal to come on.

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.
