Morning all,

A few mornings ago i got in my car and turned the car on pretty quick, the EPS light stayed on and i got a beep + warning light on the center console with the EPS light. The steering wouldnt turn. I turned the engine off then back on and all was normal.

It's never happened before and not happened since. Is this a sign of something starting to go (EPS Control unit maybe? )

If so - how much would this cost, is it a DIY job? Or should i trade the car in now!!

:police:

there is a honda software update i do believe,, also if your tracking is out and your steering wheel is not in the straight ahead position when driving in a straight line this will also give warning, as ecu gets confused it thinks the car is sliding sideways when its not,, without a really good eobd scan system diagnosing these things are pretty much impossible,,

Make sure the battery is in good condition. If the voltage is low on or just after startup, it canmake the warning symbol illuminate.
