I own a 2015 Ford F150 and while going through the mcdonalds drive through, at approx 5 mph I lost power steering unable to turn left or right. Errors displayed on dash for electronic power assist fault, advance trac fault, hill start assist fault. Also no cruise control. Pulled over in an empty parking spot, shut down the truck and restarted the truck, but there was no change to the string. Unable to drive further, I had to have the truck towed to nearby dealership greenway Ford in orlando. Per the service department, the steering control module is bad and will require replacement of the steering rack. Cost to me $1700. I purchased certified pre-owned extended warranty, but unfortunately the warranty doesn┐T cover steering rack. I am grateful we were not driving on the highway, as this could have turned out horribly.

I have a 2015 Ford F150. When driving on the highway, I get a loss of steering control while I am trying to center my steering wheel after turning right or left and sometimes it makes me go into another lane from trying to gain control.

While turning my steering wheel along a curve on a state highway going approximately 40 to 55 mph, the wheel has to be reset to the center. On youtube a video by chris peterson, called "steering issue in 2016 F150 pulling to left" is identical to my problem. Below under document I downloaded the hyperlink from youtube. This problem continues to happen, I first noticed it this past spring.

While driving on the highway at multiple speeds the steering wheel seem locked and would not turn until I would release pressure from the current position and then attempt to turn the wheel again. This has happened numerous times, on and off the highway and at all speeds.

My Ford F150 sometimes pulls to the left without turning the steering wheel and could possibly cause an accident if you are not aware of the certain pulling to the left.one must pay attention when driving between 30-55 miles per hour. I know it pulls when the road is dry and possibly when it is wet without noticing it. It does it sometimes when turning the vehicle as well.
