Punto Pop power steering failure when turning on

Hi I have a 2013 punto pop and for a while now when I go to turn it on the battery light stays on and the power steering sticks. This fixes when I turn it off and on again. There are no problems with the power steering at any other time. This also never happens when I half turn then full turn the key when turning on. Does anybody have any ideas what this could be?
Iíve had it checked by mechanics and there are no faults, and an auto electrician has been out and run a diagnostic but nothing showed. Nobody seems to have heard of this before
Itís not an issue for me as Iím now used to starting it up with a double key turn but Iím going to want to sell my car and think this could be a problem for someone wanting to buy it.
Thank you

Hi.
Its low battery power at start.up

(Lots of options..could be the alternator)

Turn the key.. let dash do all its checks.. then start engine

That should work ok.. do that for the rest of the week..

Let us know

Charlie

Welcome!

Did you have recent repairs like a new alternator?
