Re: Power Steering

I can not read any error because my diagnostic tools cannot communicate with the steering unit .

What Diagnostic tools do you have?

Check the Electrical connector on the power steering pump unit. Bad connections are common. Search this (Croma) forum for power sterring, there is a lot of information.

There are replacement looms available.

Note that while the Vectra C pump is physically identical, the firmware is different and it won't work on a Croma.

Re: Power Steering

croma is going now to mechanic. I hope that pump is ok, because here in SRB pump is too expensive.

Re: Power Steering

Hopefully it's the wiring loom not the pump.

I got my replacement PS wiring loom from a vectra c and it works fine. It cost me about gbp15 delivered and wasn't that hard to fit once I'd got the old one off.
