    Are you worried enough to have it checked , before you have a wreck?

    Good Morning, This may be a P/s computer or wiring problem ,even possibly a rack . This is the first year of electric steering and it should not have p/s fluid. We need to check vin# and production date,but if you dont see a resovoir for fluid then its definitly electric.I can set an appointment for you to perform some trouble shooting.Please call our appointment line at 954-659-1892 @ Maroone Toyota.
