Eps light indicating. does not go off when engine running


Did you change the battery? IF so that can cause this. The EPS is electric power steering. There is a motor that assists the steering system and if you remove the battery, it can have problems. If you hit something and the alignment went out or if you had it aligned by someone that does not know about these, it can cause problems.

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.

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.

Eps of my hyundai accent lights and my power steering fails,how do i fix this problem


I'm going to assume you are the original owner of this Accent. If so, the issue you have is still under warranty. Take the vehicle to the nearest Hyundai Service Department and have it repaired under warranty.

EPS light is turn on how can i turn off its?


EPS

EPS: Electronic Power Steering - enables the amount of assistance with steering to be varied depending on speed and how much you turn the wheel. This means it can give lots of boost when parking the car whilst still giving you a good feel for the road at speed.

The car is running fine, but the EPS light came on and I could hardly steer it. I have a little over 50,0000 miles on a 2008 elanatra Hyundai?


Hyundai has electric assisted power steering, not hydraulic, and I know the
new Sonata has some steering issues. Better bring it into Hyundai especially
since you're still under warranty. Don't fool with this, since the car is extremely
difficult to steer if you loose the assist.
