Driving along at 70 when battery light comes on and power steering stops working. Anybody able to offer advice.
Everything else seems fine. Wondered it alternator fault would cause this?

Re: doblo battery/steering problem

Could be something as simple as a slipping belt, the alternator itself of even an earthing fault causing little charge.

I would check the belt and the earth straps first.

So my reply about belt & earth strap was not helpful?!

That's fine.

I don't need nonsense like this when I give my time freely..

Sometimes, when you are hundreds of miles away and not able to see the problem, and when someone's rattle is someone elses clatter, it is really difficult to diagnose a problem.

Then you come along and piss all over what I already said!!!

Nice one, thank you and goodnight
