2010TSX electric power steering stuck.

The power steering won't move. It feels like it's locked. The steering was feeling very tight when making turns before this happened. There's no light on the dashboard indicating power steering failure. Anyone know the answer to this problem ?

I read somewhere that the 2nd gen TSX has had power steering failures in areas of cold climate. It is electric power steering and the module is in the foot well of passenger side i believe. So moisture or condensation builds up in the PS module there and then needs to be replaced.

I read ear a few stories about peopleís PS going out while driving on interstate which is insanely scary. How Acura hasnít addressed this yet is nuts.

No different from a belt going out while driving!

It actually hit a snow on the right side that's when it all started. It was stiff when making a turn and a few weeks later it's just stuck but the car can start. I don't know if it's the rack and pinion or control module or the steering axel is broken.
