To anyone who may help,
Ive recently bought an OBD II scanner to help diagnose steering problems with my 2001 punto HGT Abarth. Having read many threads within this forum, loss of steering is a common fault and thanks to the advice of many I think I can tackle changing out the column if required. however, I'd really like to be able to verify / understand any codes that I find. Two known faults are:- P1702 and P1536 , which are " manufacture's codes"
Having searched for many hours on the net I can't find a single site that provides Fiat code definitions.
so if any member can help, with the location of such a site, or tell me which codes to expect for total loss of power steering I'd be very appreciative.

many thanks
