EPS Repair (Electronic Power Steering)
Some steering gears provide variable ratio steering. This allows the steering ratio to change, or vary, as the steering wheel is turned away from its straight-ahead position. A typical change might be from 16:1 to 13:1. For the first 40 degree of steering wheel movement in either direction, the steering ratio remains constant. This faster steering ratio offers more control for highway driving. As the steering wheel is turned beyond 40 degrees from the straight ahead position, the steering ratio decreases. This lower and slower steering ratio helps the driver in city driving when cornering or parking. The steering wheel doesn't have to be turned as far in order to pivot the wheels.
