Experienced mechanics share their insights in answering this question :
Hello. There are known problems with the software in the electronic power-assist steering system for 2012 models. There is a technical service bulletin (322996) which instructs dealer service to update the software in vehicles with EPS problems. I would recommend discussing this TSB with your Hyundai service manager so that you can have this corrected.

Is it Safe to Drive With the EPS Light On? It is possible to drive with the EPS light on, but that doesn`t mean it`s safe. An EPS light could indicate your power steering is failing, making steering, turning, and controlling the vehicle more difficult.
Expect a hit of around 7500 rupees for the EPS controller with labour cost for replacement.
You can stop the engine and then start it again – the EPS will recover for a while, but this is temporary. The soonest possible diagnostics and repair in order to restore EPS normal function is highly recommended.
Electrical power steering systems use no fluid, so a top off is not an issue when the warning light comes on. In most cases, a simple technical glitch in the computer system may be the culprit, so a simple reboot is in order. All you need to do is turn off your engine, then restart it so the light can reset.
EPS is a relatively simple system. The steering shaft torque sensor, located in a section of torsion bar in between the steering input and output shafts, is the PSCM`s main input for determining steering direction and the amount of assist needed.
It can sometimes be caused by a fault with the battery or alternator, so you can carefully check all connections to the battery and see if there`s any visible wear or damage. This issue with the EPS light can also be caused if you have recently had to jump-start your car, or you`ve disconnected the battery.
Tips For Diagnosing EPS Issues. The main indication you`ll get if there is a malfunction with the electric power steering system is that the EPS light will illuminate on the dashboard. Specifically, the warning light will come on when the EPS system is off.
While it is technically possible to drive the car with a failing electric power steering system, it is not going to get any better. The vehicle will need to be serviced as soon as possible. The module is still pulling excess power from the battery and robbing the rest of the vehicle.
Having power steering is essential for driving. Not only can driving without it damage your car, but it can also endanger other drivers on the road. For this reason, it`s illegal in all 50 states to drive without power steering. Power steering enables you to turn your steering wheel easily and quickens reaction time.

What is the second switch called on my headlight switch?
ANSWER : Hi there. The second switch on that turn signal indicator is the parking lights. However, I understand what you’re thinking about doing and would highly recommend purchasing a detailed wiring schematic for your Mitsubishi or a repair and service manual first. Many people attempt to do this and end up calling a mechanic to rewire their accessory system due to an electrical fault or the wrong wires hooked up. Proceed with caution or have a local professional mechanic or car audio / alarm company provide you with the detailed instructions to complete this project.

EPC light on 2004 Jetta. Code said brake switch faulty, but brakes lights worked. Replaced brake switch, now no brake lights.
ANSWER : Hi there. The first thing that pops in my mind beyond of what you have listed is perhaps the electrical harness attached to the brake switch. Perhaps the harness itself is damaged or you have an exposed wire, loose ground wire somewhere. You might want to have a professional mobile mechanic come to your location and complete a brake lights not working inspection to help you diagnose this issue.

ANSWER : Hi there. You might want to review this question and our mechanic’s reply to see if this helps. Otherwise, I would recommend purchasing a service and repair manual for your vehicle as it will include detailed schematics for all systems. We are here to offer basic repair and maintenance tips for cars, trucks and SUV’s sold in the United States, so the European MB will most likely have different location of components; which is why purchasing a manual is best for your individual application.

Switched light bulbs, switched fuse, exchanged the reverse light switch, still not working
ANSWER : Hi there. If you are having problems with a reverse lights, it is possibly due to a reverse shift sensor or damaged electrical relay that powers the light. It’s also possible that you have an exposed wire that’s causing this issue. You might want to have a professional mechanic complete a light not working inspection to determine what is causing this issue.

I put a new ignition switch in my 2004 Chrysler Pacifica but it still wont start, how do I program the ignition switch?
ANSWER : Hello. If your vehicle is not cranking, then I would first verify that the starter and electrical system are functioning correctly. Aside from a bad ignition switch, a few common causes for a no crank condition are a faulty starter, starter solenoid, starter relay, or bad wiring. If you replaced the switch, and wish to program the new keys the procedure is as follows:

Note: You must have two valid keys to add a new key to the system.

Insert the first valid key into the ignition switch. Turn the ignition switch to the
ON/RUN position for at least three seconds, but no longer than 15 seconds.
Then, Turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position and remove the first key.
Insert the second valid key into the ignition switch. Turn the ignition switch to the ON/RUN position within 15 seconds. After 10 seconds, a chime will sound. In addition, the Vehicle Security Light will begin to flash. Turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position and remove the second key.
Insert the new key into the ignition switch. Turn the ignition switch to the ON/RUN position within 60 seconds. After 10 seconds, a single chime will sound. In addition, the Vehicle Security Light will stop flashing. To indicate that programming is complete, the Vehicle Security Light will turn on again for seconds and then turn off.

The new key should now be programmed. The Remote Keyless Entry transmitter will also be programmed during this procedure. Repeat this procedure to program up to eight keys. If you are still having problems with this after you’ve replaced the key, a certified technician from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to inspect the cranking issue.

P0705 Range Selector Switch
ANSWER : Hello – it is unfortunate that you do not have knowledge of how the transmission shifted prior to the P0705 range selector switch failure. Still – it is possible that the range selector switch is simply mis-adjusted, or has lost its adjustment since you installed it. It is also possible that the new switch is faulty. Replacing/re-adjusting the neutral safety switch is the recommended next step. A mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, will come to your location, repair this problem, and get you back on your way.

I put a new ignition switch in my 2004 chrystlwr pacifica but it still wont start, how do i program rhe ignition switch?
ANSWER : Hello.

If your vehicle is not cranking, but the lights and accessories come on then it may be possible that the issue is rooted elsewhere. I would verify that the starting and electrical system are in good order. A no crank condition can be caused by a faulty battery, starter, starter solenoid, relay, or any of the wiring associated with these components. I would start with checking the battery and starter, and go from there. If you wish to program your new switch and key, the procedure is as follows:

Note: You must have two valid keys to add a new key to the system.

Insert the first valid key into the ignition switch. Turn the ignition switch to the ON/RUN position for at least three seconds, but no longer than 15 seconds. Then, Turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position and remove the first key.
Insert the second valid key into the ignition switch. Turn the ignition switch to the ON/RUN position within 15 seconds. After 10 seconds, a chime will sound. In addition, the vehicle security light will begin to flash. Turn the ignition switch to the lock position and remove the second key.
Insert the new key into the ignition switch. Turn the ignition switch to the ON/RUN position. Within 60 seconds. After 10 seconds, a single chime will sound. In addition, the Vehicle Security Light will stop flashing. To indicate that programming is complete, the Vehicle Security Light will turn on again for seconds and then turn off.

The new key is now programmed. The Remote Keyless Entry transmitter will also be programmed during this procedure.

Repeat this procedure to program up to eight keys.
