Hi my eps light is comming on and i lose power streering how do i fix it

It cannot be fixed until the problem with the Electronic Power Steering(EPS) is properly diagnosed.
The power assist system is comprised of...
  • EPS computer unit
  • Warning light on the dashboard
  • A connection to the OBD2 Diagnostic port in the car
  • A Vehicle speed sensor
  • A sensor which detects steering rotation on the input shaft of the steering rack
  • An electric motor, which provides the power steering assistance to the steering rack. Unless that motor runs you will have no power assistance to your steering.
  1. You will need to have the system scanned with the appropriate scan tool through the OBD port in the car. This will generate various fault codes which assist in diagnosing where the problem lies in the power steering system. It may be just a failed sensor that needs replacing or it might be a bigger problem.
  2. Once the fault codes have been pulled the mechanics can diagnose the cause and make whatever repairs or parts changes may be required.
  3. This is not a do it yourself exercise. You will need a mechanic who knows these Japanese electronic power steering systems and who understands the fault codes (and there are many of them on this EPS system) to diagnose the problem for you and fix whatever fault(s) has arisen.

I changed the 3-4 shift soleniod but now i dont have any gear but 2nd and before we had 1-3 just not over drive. what could have went wrong?

There is no code that tells you to replace the shift sdolenoid. There is a code (P0783) That has a generic description of "3-4 Shift Malfunction". Please note that there are several things that can cause this code. This code DOES NOT mean to replace the shift solenoid without first diagnosing the other possible causes of this code.
P0753 is for the "3-4 Shift Solenoid/Transmission Relay Circuit" If this is the code you had, please note that this code is a CIRCUIT code. The circuit includes the 3-4 shift solenoid, the transmission power relay and all the the wires and connectors connecting the power relay, the solenoid, and the PCM together. In this case the CIRCUITS must be diagnosed prior to replacing ANYTHING.

With all that said, is there now, or was there originally any other codes in the system besides one of these? If so, what are/were they? It is possible that there is a relay fault that is causing ALL of the shift solenoids to malfunction. It is also possible that there is low line pressure causing your no-shifting problem. Then there is the question: Are you absolutely certain that you replaced the correct solenoid?

I have also seen the shifting problems worsen due to misdiagnosis. Example: the power relay is causing the problem...the 3-4 shift solenoid gets changed...the transmission valve body is now full of air because the transmission was drained and the shift solenoid was removed from the valve body causing the valve body to drain...everything gets put back together and the transmission fluid is replaced....Now the transmission will not shift in any gear because the valve body cannot purge the air due to the solenoids being inoperative. They were inoperative in the first place and are still inoperative because the wrong part got replaced. PROPER diagnosis and repair will get everything working again.

I would recommend starting over to see what codes you now have and diagnose the system accordingly.

Check Engine light comes on and off periodicaly. If my Power Steering pump is going out will this cause it to do that???

The power steering may have a switch on it for a variable steering rate. The switch itself could be faulty. A friend of mine had a service engine light due to the faulty switch on his Dodge pickup. His did not have a bad pump. If there is a fault in the variable steering rate system that may give you the feel of a bad pump (unless you know the pump is going out for sure)

Since your check engine light has been on, go to a local auto parts store and most will hook up a code reader for free to see what codes may be stored.

I have a 1998 gmc sierra 1500 z71 and the cruise control doesn't work at all. Is there any way I can fix it myself?

Actually FIXING the cruise control is usually not very hard. The hard part is finding out what is WRONG with the cruise control. Cruise control problems are usually caused by a broken clockspring (or contact assembly) in the steering column or a faulty cruise control servo assembly. Of course, there are several other possible reasons for the cruise to malfunction, but these are the most common.

The first step would be to scan your Engine Control Module (ECM) for fault codes. Please note that cruise control faults will not normally cause the Check Engine light to illuminate, so it is NOT safe to assume there are no codes present just because the light is not on. If the Check Engine light IS on, then you need to scan your ECM anyway! If there is a problem with the servo assembly, there will most likely be a code set. Problems with the clockspring will not usually set a code. A good clue that this could possibly be the problem is an inoperative horn and/or the Airbag warning light being on. (A broken clockspring will also cause these things)

A4 2.5tdi quattro tiptronic 180 bph 2002 .put in 4 new intercoolers in it the last year.The intercoolers are bursting open when excelerating,

More than just bad luck i suspect. Problem will almost surely be turbo overboost. Possible causes, wastegate jammed, actuator siezed, boost sensor inop. Best advice is to have fault codes and live data read with a suitable scan tool to determine the exact cause of the overboost condition. Easy enough job for competent garage.

My eps light came on and now I have no power steering is their a way to reset the light

Sometimes (few) a fault in the wiring loop causing it to short on the steering column and turn on EPS (Electronic Power Steering), check it and scanned for know if some additional fault code is stored there.

Keep us updated.

In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to disarm the airbag system can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury disconnect the battery 30 minutes prior to start of work.
