The steering motor sensor may fail, resulting in loss of power steering assist from the electric power steering system.

If no codes are found, dealers will update the PSCM software free of charge to resolve the concern.

As a result of water intrusion, the license plate lamp assembly may experience corrosion in states where road salt us used to de-ice the roads.
