Electric Power Steering (EPS)

This system assists you with steering the vehicle.

If the engine is turned off or if the EPS becomes inoperative, you may still steer the vehicle, but it will require increased steering effort.

Should you notice any change in the effort required to steer during normal vehicle operation, have the EPS checked by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.

CAUTION

If the Electric Power Steering System does not operate normally, the warning light ( ) will illuminate on the instrument cluster. The steering wheel may become difficult to control or operate. Take your vehicle to an authorized HYUNDAI dealer and have the system checked as soon as possible.

✽ NOTICE

  • The steering effort may be high immediately after placing the ignition switch in the ON position. This happens as the system performs the EPS system diagnostics. When the diagnostics is completed, the steering wheel will return to its normal condition.
  • A click noise may be heard from the EPS relay after the ignition switch is placed in the ON or LOCK/OFF position.
  • A motor noise may be heard when the vehicle is at a stop or at a low driving speed.
  • When you operate the steering wheel in low temperature, abnormal noise may occur. If temperature rises, the noise will disappear. This is a normal condition.

After adjusting, pull up the lock-release lever (1) to lock the steering wheel in place. Push the steering wheel both up and down to be certain it is locked in position.

Always adjust the position of the steering wheel before driving.
