Ok here is a little trick you can do if you want to pass inspection before you get the problem fixed. When you get the the place where the inspection is performed go and park in the parking lot and disconnect the negative battery terminal and let it sit for at least 15 minutes so the resistors discharge. when you connect the battery the light will be off. Now, you only have about 15-30 minuted before the computer gecognizes the problem is still stere and turns it back on. this is your window to go through inspection! This does work. I did this on the 99' dodge you see in my picture when I had a check engine for the rear O2 sensor. Please mark solution solved and leave feedback if this helps.

Thank you and good luck!

Hi, My Versa wanders at speeds over 70mph. Probably electric steering. How can I make it more stabile on the highway? The car did it since new. It has been checked for everything that could go wrong.


have an inspection done on the steering and front end suspension
loose /worn ball joints steering end joints , wheel alignment and faulty tyres will give you this indication
The power steering pump does nothing more that provide pressure into the steering box/rack to assist with the steering
it may be that the steering is to sensitive at speed and most systems compensate by having less power assist at speed
take it to a steering specialist accredited shop as the control valves may need replacing or adjusting

Why has my SSPS light turned on..what is the problem and how to solve it?


SPSS or Speed Sensitive Power Steering warning light.
Not something you can fix unless you know how to pull a steering column out and have a scan tool to reset the light once the sensor is replaced. The sensor itself is expensive ( over $200 )

You might have something wrong with your power steering. Could mean low power steering fluid if you haven't check it lately. Bad sensor like what happen to my car or things wrong with your power steering pump,control arms

The only thing that happens with a bad sensor is that you have full time power assist.
Speed Sensitive Steering reduces the amount of power assist at hwy speeds so as to give the driver better "road feel".

Hope this helps and just keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer. Thank you for using FixYa.

I have anexclamation point on my dashboard. its a 2007 suzuki forenza. what does it mean


on a Suzuki , Your vehicle is equipped with Speed Sensitive Power Steering (SSPS).
This is a computer-controlled power steering assist system.
The warning light you are describing will come on briefly when you turn the ignition to ON as a check to show you the bulb is working.
Then it should go out after a few seconds. If the warning light does not come on, have it fixed so it will be able to warn you if there is a problem.
If the warning light stays on, or comes on while you are driving, the SSPS system may not be working.
Your computer will need to be scanned to determine what the problem is with your SSPS system.

What is the SSPS warning light? what does it mean? used to flash on and off now its staying on more. I saw someone asked the question, but I don't know Spanish!


this is the speed sensitive power steering system light and it is usually due to either a problem with the sensor, located at the base of the steering column or the pump itself might be defective.

I haver\ a light on dashboard that looks like a steering wheel with a ! what does it mean


It's your speed sensitive power steering light. Your speed sensitive power steering makes your wheel harder to turn when you're going fast and easier to turn when you are going slow. I have a 2005 Forenza and mine keeps coming on and off but I can't figure out why yet. Hope it helps!
