55 1.9 Diesel power steering fault

For a few months, every now and then after about an hours and a half, the power steering would fail with associated warning light. By turning off the ignition, then back on again it would clear and not return.

This morning, I get the warning light but the steering appears normal! Turning the car off and then on again will only clear the warning light for a few seconds.

Anyone know what the problem might be?

Re: 55 1.9 Diesel power steering fault


There are several things it could be, so a good place to start would be to have the codes read and then post them up here.

You could do it yourself with Multi ECU Scan and the appropriate cable on a laptop, or if you post your location, maybe someone close to you may be able to assist.

A common cause of EPS problems particularly at this time of year is a weak battery. So its also worth having your battery properly tested. There are lots of places that will do this for you for free. However to me your problem sounds like it may be more than a weak battery.
