I just lowered my 2012 gt and changed the plugs. The springs only lowered it 1.1" in front and 1.6" in back. That went smoothly. While changing the plugs I accidentally grounded out the ratchet extension on the battery while trying to remove the last plug on passenger side. The problem is now my car reads "service advance track" and I have no power steering. Any ideas?

Hopefully the computer was not fried by the short.

I would try disconnecting the battery for about 1/2 hour, then hook it back up, and see what happens.

Probably too simplistic, but check your fuses while you are at it...

You must have blown the fuse on the positive battery cable. Time for a new one and this is why you're supposed to remove the cables when doing a plug change on these cars. It's going to be expensive.

You blew the fuse to the steering. Look at the fuse layout and the steering is a large fuse. This is common when people do header installs.
