Dash board became a Christmas Tree

I was coming home on the freeway when i pulled over for a Starbucks. When I returned and started the car many of my warning lights suddenly appeared including my hold key in orange . One of the warning lights was low tire pressure but all 4 tires seemed fine so i decided to drive the 30 minutes to my Kia dealership To add insult to injury my power steering did not work . Fast forward Kia ran the diagnostic and found that a sensor was not working and ordered me the new part . The diagnostics did not show power steering failure but the technician suggests that the issue is all connected .I expect to have the car back by Thursday Friday at the latest. I enclosed the dash board picture. Has anyone else had an issue where many warning lights come on at once

Update I picked up my 2016 Cadenza and was told that the sensor on my right front tire was malfunctioning The sensor was #59830-3R750nSEnsor[ Total gibberish to me .The only thing that was important was that it was a warranty approved replacement

A wheel speed sensor, interesting. Well it canít have been to difficult of a fix if road debris could get to it.

Wow, that's rare that something like that would be covered under warranty. They must not have mentioned the damage in the claim. In that case, i wouldn't mention the dealership here, as if Kia was looking to smack them for a fraud claim some kia flunky could make a name for himself stumbling across this thread.

Yes! I had my right front tire make contact with the wheel speed sensor wire and partially damage it doing a hard left turn under pretty heavy acceleration (don't ask). Anyway, immediately after said manunver my car did exactly the same thing you are describing including the lack of power steering though it wasn't an actual loss of power steering, it was just more effort required for input. You must not be old enough to have driven cars with no power steering, lol. It's much, much harder than you think when a power steering car loses its power (pump).

Anyway, my dealer is a pretty good one, thankfully, and he explained that after losing the wheel speed sensor input, the computer is missing a lot of important information hence all the dashboard lights. So, the car goes into "limp home" mode and that mode includes any extra boosted power steering, hence the more input required to steer. After replacing the sensor (comes with new short wire to the plug inside the fender well) all was perfect again. Now, mine was not included under warranty (obvious) but the whole job was only like $185 or so.

2014 SXL, only mods are after market rims due to recall. Plenty on the list though!

Well I wish I was young enough not to remember My first car was a Ford cortina and trust me it did not have power steering .
