Exclamation Service Power Steering

Got in my car today, went to start it, nothing, no crank. I pressed lock on the remote, then unlock, car starts right up but it says Service Power Steering. Drive with Care. The brake light and ABS are lit too. Steering wheel feels weird, won't turn back on its own. Drove it home, turned it off and started it again, still there. Checked for codes and there was none. Turned it off then on again and everything was back to normal, steering feels normal

Check and clean connectors to the linear actuator? Or maybe it will reset itself with a battery disconnect/reconnect.

Thought of that when it happened. I removed it when I drove home.
The part where the car would not start unless I locked and unlock with the remote has happened a few times though..

Get it to the dealer. That power steering goes out when you are trying to turn you will get hurt bad. Guy on the site totaled his ZL1 when it happened to him.

Happened to me too. Power steering, ABS, little to no power steering and brakes partially applied. I've had the Range almost a year. Nothing like this happened before but these codes and problems today present a safety concern. Probably will mothball it.

Agree, the Range is the problem, at times it causes communication errors and you will see these type of issues.

This has happened to me multiple times. When it happens turn the key off and pull it out, remove the Range, wait a minute or so then restart the car, everything should be normal, now you can reinstall the Range (while the car is still running) and all should be ok.

Just the Range device having a blonde moment lol. If you take the Range out, start it, it should go away.

I wouldn't plug it back in while the ignition is on

I have had a couple of those. I unplug the range and let the car sit for a few mins then it starts fine.

Yes, Range even says to do a "hot" plug in to correct the issue.

SERVICE POWER STEERING
This message is displayed if there is
a problem with the power steering
system and a chime may sound.
Take the vehicle to your dealer for
service.- from the manual.

Could be the ECM. I had a 2011 V6 do this three day after purchase!! Have it towed. The tow will be covered by the warranty service.

Your are correct ! As long as you have one of their latest models. Here is the link https://rangetechnology.zendesk.com/hc/en-us . Its under Check Engine Lights. It also talks specifically about the electronic power steering code that can come up.
