Toyota Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and Welcome..My name is ***** ***** Im happy to help / advise you with this issue.The EPS light - warn light is to tell you that the computer module on the car has detected a fault in the EPS system - thats the Electric Power Steering as you mention...Now - this being an electronically controlled steering on this car - ie, its motor driven / computer controlled unlike older conventional rack & pinion systems - it is going to mean it has stored / logged a "fault code" in the module - What needs to be done now is to have a plug in diagnostic test done to determine what that code /s is - that then tells you / the tech - where the fault is in the system.Often this is just down to bad wiring / connections in the system - thats the first thing to check - but the codes will tell you fully..., and that is the proper way to test these. This is Im afraid unfortunate - you do have to go with it to a suitable equipped garage to run the plug in test - it has to be a garage that has the correct equipment to suit the systems on that car / Toyota.Click this link HERE... that should help you find a garage. failing that - you will have to return to the dealer Im afraid - as they will have the needed equipment... or a different Toyota dealer should you choose. This link HERE would help you with a different dealer - you can narrow it down knowing your locale..This by the way doesn't have anything to do with the starting issues you had - this is a separate issue Im afraid... So thats the way forward to get this cured for you now -Im very pleased to have helped you - Do let me know if you need anything more -- *** Meanwhile - - >>>> Please do click on the "OK/ Excellent ratings" for me - Thank you in advance for that...You can and are most welcome to get back to me anytime you might need - clicking the OK ratings does not close you out at all..Kind Rgds, MIKE.
