Power steering issue.

My car starts normal and drive for about thirty minutes without any issues. Suddenly I get EPS warning and steering becomes stiff which means my car's power steering stops functioning.

If I stops the car for about thirty minutes again I wont see the EPS error and my power steering has returned. This keeps happening which is very frustrating.
