Hyundai Sonata: Electric Power Steering / Description and Operation

Description
EPS (Electric power steering) system uses an electric motor to assist the steering force and it is an engine operation independent steering system.
EPS control module controls the motor operation according to information received from the each sensor and CAN (Controller Area Network), resulting in a more precise and timely control of steering assist than conventional engine-driven hydraulic systems.
Components (Torque Sensor, Fail-safe relay, etc.) of the EPS system are located inside the steering column & EPS unit assembly and the steering column & EPS unit assembly must not be disassemble to inspect or replace them.
