Advisory details

On certain vehicles, melting snow and water containing road salt may enter the vehicle and corrode a splice connection in the electric power steering (EPS) module circuit. This could lead to increased resistance in the EPS circuit which could result in intermittent or permanent loss of the steering assist. A loss of power steering assist could unexpectedly increase steering effort which would increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will seal the affected connection and repair it as necessary.
