Check alternator charge Best to monitor charge while driving, alternator might be dropping charge and not providing the EGS with voltage.
My battery light came on while driving. Soon after the transmission failsafe program came on. Once i got home, i turned off the car and have had to charge the battery just to start the car again.....
