1 Answer

That isn't a question or of any help what so ever

You have stiff steering --- so you need to have it diagnosed
and repaired,we can't do that

You have some type of light on -- after some 30 years
of check lights on all vehicles,you should be knowledgeable
enough to know the proceedure

Check for Codes
Diagnose & Repair

Should be done in week from the
first check light or sign of any vehicle
malfunction to final repair

There is absolutely no reason not to have
a repair shop you have been going to for
years & built a good relationship with

I30 2016 model.Bought December steering is stiff - sticky above 60 mph making small direction changes difficult to acheive. It is fine at lower speeds

take it back in for a steering module check
the hyundai I 30 elantra has a recall ( 2015) for loss of power steering due to a loss of steering assistance from an electrical power steering fault
There is a control module that applies full assistance at low speeds , parking or cornering but reduces the assistance effort at speeds where assistance is not really required
from your description, it indicates that the control module is not functioning correctly and so you are advised to take it back in for a recall check or a warranty check on the system

Can electric assisted power steering be adjusted ?

power steering is adjusted by the pressure settings in the pump. Regardless of the conditions of your hands, there should be assistance from the pump .I would suggest that you have it checked at an accredited steering shop as the power steering pump may be faulty

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.

The steering is stiff and the fluid is full

Sounds like a power steering pump. The pump provides pressure to move the steering in both direction, with no hydraulic assist it will be stiff.

My vw polo 1.6 powersteering become stiff or hard sometime and there a light that appear on the dashboard when that happens but it is not constant thing. what might be the problem because i even top up...

Check that the belt is tight on the alternator and the power steering pump. If it slips, that could cause the light on the dash ( a charge light) and the lack of power steering assist.

Good luck on this repair.

1. Brake Light Came On 2. Steering got stiff

Check your belt/tensioner, and alternator. Either the belt has no tension or your alternator has gone bad.

Eps light is on and steering is stiff

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.
bar.gif Our unique control algorithm allows for improved handling. bar.gif Compact, light weight. bar.gif Capable of controlling motors from 25 to 80A. bar.gif Standardized column integrated or stand alone ECU.Basically its a electrically power steering to assist the driver to turn the steering wheel. Check the electronic control unit(ECU) for any short/burnout and the wiring should be pliable. If not then proper amount of current is not reaching the motor.
The light can light up if there a failure of the motor or any sensor is activated when this circuit has any problem.
Get i checked & repaired from their authorized Dealer and also get a service warranty for the part replaced as per norms out there.
However repair immediately otherwse you might find the steering wheel turning in haphazard manner or it could get locked while driving! .........................................sodeep
