First post on the sub here.. Its been awhile since I have posted on a forum like this.


So last night I packed my Forester full to the brim to move some stuff over to my new place. I had to make a quick stop at Target for a couple things before getting to the new place so I pull into my spot.

I come back out and start my car start pulling out of my spot but as soon as I try to turn the wheel the Power Steering error pops up on the dash and info screen. The light does not come on as soon as I start it but only when I attempt to turn the wheel.

I have been searching everywhere for a similar issue and only seem to find stuff on 2014 Foresters(not sure if it is the same setup). I suppose there is electric power steering in the 2016 Forester based off some articles I have read. And I do not have much knowledge on that kind of system.

Does anyone know of a fix for this? Anyone experienced something similar and had a remedy for this issue?

TL;DR 2016 Forester.. Power Steering went out and error popped up... How to fix?

This just happened to me today on my 2016 XT. The power steering light came then my steering wheel locked up when I tried to back out of driveway. I was unable to turn it. I was able to tow it to dealership before they closed. I was hoping to find some info on here so I have an idea of what to expect. Did you find out anything about your error?
