I had an accident in the snow and slid into the guardrail while turning. Not much body damage, but the steering completely locked. Was stuck in the road for 2 hours with the police having to block off around me. Had it towed to my mechanic. He could not do anything with it because he said it was electrical and could not clear the code that was coming up and needed to go the dealership.had to have it towed to the dealership. They are replacing the steering.

Upon starting vehicle I noticed intermittent "check power steering system". during drive cycle I encountered failure of electric power steering assist, very difficult to steer vehicle. Went to dealer for service, they witnessed same symptoms stated above, but intermittent check light will not produce a fault code, technician stated it seems like a ground problem. Unable to drive vehicle due to unsafe condition, very difficult to steer, would not be able to avoid an emergency while driving because of the amount of force needed to steer vehicle.
