Hi there

My Colt's EPS turned on the other day whilst I was on a roundabout. Steering locked completely. Very scary! Got the car back to the house and since then the light has not come on and it's been fine. I'm wondering if anyone has any experience of this happening? Can you diagnostically test a Colt at home? Any help gratefully received!

Thank you
:)

If the colt has electric power steering - seems to me you were too fast.

The system detects wheel spin - takes the steps necessary - and cuts power to steering.

Why? So human doesn´t interfere with counter measures from system.

As soon as no more wheel spin - switch it back on.
