    confused Power steering fault??

    I'm getting a warning symbol appear on my dash... its a steering wheel with and explanation mark on the top right, it only appears if i pull away quickly at a roundabout (which there are alot of in milton keynes) or at a junction, its not on anytime other than that... it comes on for a few seconds then goes off...

    ... I had a look in the manual and it says its a power steering fault? But doesn't mention it about flashing on... if I pull away at a slowly I don't get the symbol? I know the option would be to not pull away quickly... but sometimes its needed

    anyone know what this is? anyone had it before?

    Michael

    could it be the fluid? not enough in so when you pull away fast it thinks there aint enough in?

    Does sound like low fluid mate, would be worth a check first.

    Hi Mate, must be Milton Keynes - I've had stearing issues. Does the feel of the steering get heavier? Mine started like this and within a week was coming on more and more and staying on then my steering got really heavy. Turned out to be an angle sensor.
