Electronic Power Steering Diagnosis and Repair
Most newer vehicles are being equipped with electronic power steering (EPS). Newer systems are far more than simply an electric version of the traditional hydraulic rack and pinion steering unit. Modern electronic power steering units are a highly connected system of sensors and actuators. If you are experiencing power steering issues with your newer vehicle, it is critical that you seek a professional shop with the proper equipment to service such a system. The use of improper equipment or a mistake by an untrained technician not following proper procedures can result in significant damage and ultimately a much more costly repair.

EPS Sensor Inputs and Modules
An EPS module is more than just a circuit board and connectors in an aluminium or plastic box. The EPS module contains the drivers, signal generators, and switches that power and control the electric motor.
