    Though it shouldn't as it is a 2008 model, but I guess you're up for a 30 odd thousand rupees teeka.

    But wait for the experts.

    EPS do not hav any steering oil...steering oil is used in hydraulic power steering..

    while EPS is run by an electronic motor

    My guess is the EPS motor is not working.get it checked by some electrician.
    Qaiser Pal,I have not failed.But found 1 of 10,000 ways which doesn't work.....Toyota driver "I couldn't repair my brakes,so i made my horn louder"..When i was born i was so surprised that i didn't talked to one and half year..since light travel faster then sound,people appear bright until you hear them speak..If u can't convince them,confuse them
