I don't know - it wasn't SG equipped.

Make sure you won't be in any situations where you may need to steer quickly - I'd try it first (steering, engine off) away from traffic if you haven't already. You may change your mind.

I would say it resets. It's likely a lubrication issue -as soon as you start the engine, you're OK again. Oily bits re-oiled. (But don't sue me when it falls out the bottom of the van, OK? )
