Check your power steering fluid level.

Yup its your power steering.. once you put some more in it should go out...no worries. It should cost you $17-18 dollars for the fluid.

I don't have a 745, but on my 750 it takes CHF-11S hydraulic fluid and it is more like $30 a can. Also if you get the message again and you have to add more fluid you probably have a leak somewhere.

that's the dynamic drive error symbol. It CAN be caused by low CHS fluid in the power steering fluid container.

FURTHERMORE, it can be caused by a variety of other issues such as a steering angle sensor and such. Check the fluid level first and add some if necessary. Refer to the manual to see what your car requires and buy that. Don't get generic stuff.

I had that same light come on. I went to auto zone and got the right fluid. They also carry stop leak power steering and it works. Didn't pay $30 a can.

Mine was caused by the "stop light switch." Lots of potential causes.
