Hi,
My battery got a jumpstart and then my power steering light came on. I replaced battery but P/S light remains on. Any ideas.

If somebody reversed the jumper cables, it may have popped a fuse. Look in the fuse box under the hood for a 60A fuse marked EMPS.

Is the light the only indication of a problem? You didn't actually mention if the power steering was working or not working.

Yep, your electric power steering has failed. Hopefully it's only the fuse Junebug referred to. If not it's time to read the codes or get it to Toyota with your bank account numbers.

If you have no other problems (other than the power steering not working) I suggest you check the 60A EMPS fuse which is located in the engine compartment, on the drivers side.
