These are the Electric Power Steering (or Electronically controlled or Electronic) (EPS) Indicator symbols. If equipped, the light will come on when the vehicle is first started. If it comes on while driving, there is a problem with the system.
The good news is that there may be a way around it…
As an electronic system, there is a chance it can be “reset”. Pull over as soon as possible and shut down the engine for a short period of time and restart. If the light does not go out you will need to take the vehicle to your dealer or authorized repair facility as soon as possible.
The good news is that the vehicle can be driven with a power steering failure. However, the steering will lack the power assist and will be more difficult to steer. Proceed with caution.
