in the mornings when it was 30 degrees or below, the steering would be locked. I would put it in drive, reverse, move back and forth, but the steering wouldn't move. it's done it on 8 different occasions so far. what really worries me is I'm driving and it's below freezing, i can feel it wanting to stick. Almost as if there is water in the power steering fluid, but i can't find anywhere to check it.
on the cold mornings, I'll let it run for at least 20 minutes to warm up before i try moving it. the only way to free the steering wheel and get it to working is to GENTLY turn the wheel to the left and right. after about 5 minutes of doing this, it seems to break free?
anyone else having an issue? or know how i can start diagnosing? with the electric power steering, it's a bit different than normal
