KIA Niro: Steering wheel
Motor Driven Power Steering (MDPS) - (Kia Niro Hybrid only)
Power steering uses the motor to assist you in steering the vehicle.
If the engine is off or if the power steering system becomes inoperative, the vehicle may still be steered, but it will require increased steering effort.
The MDPS is controlled by the power steering control unit which senses the steering wheel torque and vehicle speed to command the motor.
The steering effort becomes heavier as the vehicle's speed increases and becomes lighter as the vehicle's speed decreases for better control of the steering wheel.
Should you notice any change in the effort required to steer during normal vehicle operation, have the system checked by a professional workshop. Kia recommends to visit an authorized Kia dealer/service partner.
