VERY light steering wheel

I have areally odd problem that didn't come up in my searches. My steering wheel feels like the power assist is WAY overboosted. I can practically drive my car with my pinky finger. The road feedback feeling is also pretty much disappeared. Anybody else ever have this problem?

I pretty much feel that way unless it's in PTM5. It hasn't changed on me over time though, has always been like that best I can remember.

"Tour" setting makes the steering lighter.

We have the same car and I don't have the same experience you are having. In any mode.

I should add, this is not the way my car used to be. Something has changed that now makes my car feel like i'm steering a '72 Cadillac. Both tour and sport mode feel way lighter than they used to. I don't have PTM modes because I'm a 'vert. I should also add that this feeling started after my last trip to the dealership. I'm wondering if they updated my BCM with glitchy firmware or something like that.

Is it just light or is there play in the steering?

No play, just ridiculously light to turn.
