The steering motor sensor may fail, resulting in loss of power steering assist from the electric power steering system. Dealers will check the power steering control module (PSCM) for any trouble codes and replace the steering gear for vehicles that have codes relevant to the concern stored. If no codes are found, dealers will update the PSCM software free of charge to resolve the concern.
