Steering Assist Fault. Service Required.
I started my 2014 Escape on Friday night and got this error. The EPS is apparently dead. I can drive it around, but I have to wrestle it around. The bad part is that I was 500 miles from home, so I made the trip earlier today. I'm going to guess I didn't damage it worse, but is this an expensive fix? I'm right under 40,000 miles right now, so I'm guessing I'm beyond the warranty that would fix it.
I did search, but most of the results have said the error clears when you restart the car and the EPS comes back. Mine never did.
I plan to wrestle it to the dealer tomorrow and hope I don't have to pay.
