Steering wheel with exclemation point

So from reading the forms here I have found it's the power steering. Wondering if this is something I can fix or do I need to take it to a shop.
Background... went to the storage today, found the battery dead, had to jump start it. When it fired up the light was on. Had not been ridden for about 5 months or so, light was not on prior to storage. Drove it around for about 5 minutes and power steering is not working. I don't see visually anything wrong with the steering system. Wondering if maybe it's just something electrical from having to jump start it?

Re: Steering wheel with exclemation point

You may have to clear the fault before the EPS will work again. It probably did not see the correct voltage to start with!!

Ok, let's start with the cheaper one first. How do you clear the fault?

Re: Steering wheel with exclemation point

get the battery to full charge first.
then start up the machine and see if it clears, if it does good if it doesn't dont freak out just yet.
drive it around for a little bit in low gear 5-10 minutes then shut it off and restart it may clear up. if this doesn't work you can see what the code is by doing the following:
Toggle the mode button until the chk eng shows on the screen
then press and hold the button until the diagnostic menu shows up
A set of 3 numbers will appear on the screen
the 1st, number on the far left is the number of trouble codes stored 0 thru 9
the second is on the top right and can have up to 6 digits and is the suspect parameter that has faulted
the third is: on the bottom and is one or two digits and is the fault mode.

write the code down and come back here for an answer.

mine was doing this in cold weather and it was a speed sensor or crank position sensor, anyway ever since it has warmed up I have not had the issue return.
