EPS Electronic power steering warning light.

Had my I20 13 days now (180 miles on the clock).
Last night EPS light came on and all power assistance to steering was lost.

Pretty scary!!!

I was able to stop after a half mile or so. Stop / started the engine and all was well.

Car booked into the dealer for Saturday. Hopefully they can find some diagnosticís and fix

Just thought Iíd share. Hopefully, this will not become a common theme.

Garage had the car for one hour last Saturday.
They found a couple of fault codes but had to send them to Hyundai.
Garage was meant to call me Monday to let me know the next step.
I waited till Tuesday lunch time and called them.
They need the car back for more tests. So it goes in tomorrow (20/10/09)

Ok garage the garage had the car all day Tuesday and they found the problem.
Apparently, a fault in the wiring loop causing it to short on the steering column.
Anyway they said itís all sorted and I must admit the steering does seem better.
Letís hope thatís the last of it.

Hi frinto, to the forum.

The problem was solved by the dealers, there was a problem with the wiring.

Hello to all!

So, it was the last or not? Hope yes

John Corrigan (JC) and Mr Pogle,
Are you sure it was "a fault in the wiring loop causing it to short on the steering column" ? We are dealing with this problem too.

Hi,

I have a i20, magna petrol. now run around 1200 kms.
I too have similar problem with power steering.

Say, if I stop the engine in traffic signal for around 2 minutes or so, then after restarting engine, the steering will be hard for some time. At least around 5 or 6 seconds.

I complained to Hyundai dealer, and in their service center we couldn't reproduce this.
Then again in road, this was recurring. So, I asked them to accompany me in my car for a test drive,
I reproduced the same, and they agreed that these is something wrong. This is not always happening, but happens most of the times.

The solution they offered is : they will replace the steering unit. He told me that they will replace full set.
waiting for this to happen.
