power steering light

hello

i have a problem with my power steering light . it comes on although,the power steering is fine . when it comes on ,if you full lock the steering it will go out but then it comes back on , in a few minutes .

it does not come on all the time . just about 1 day every fortnight .

its a diesel panda and the battery is in good condition . as it will turn the car over very quickly for a good few minutes , which is needed in this cold weather .

if i need a new steering motor ,does the motor need to be matched to the ecu? and how hard is the job to do ? ( i am quite handy with spanners)

thanks

Re: power steering light

Have to actually checked the battery, just because it starts ok doesn't mean it's charging correctly, or holding the correct charge
