    Default Power Steering Warning

    Hi folks

    Have just unfortunately had the power steering warning light come on in my 1.9cdti (150). The stereo started to go on and off before the warning light came on. Also the abs and t/c lights came on and shortly after went out. The power steering then gave up, luckily I had stopped. Then tried stopping and starting the car with power steering working ok for 30 seconds before all the same lights came back on, and the steering giving up once more.
    Its seems as though it could be an electrical issue as the power steering returned (briefly) and the reservoir is full, but if someone could clarify this for me I'd be most appreciative. Has anyone else had a similar problem or can anyone shed any light on what it might be and how much its going to cost me at the dealer.

    Thanks in advance

    I think it's your alternator matey

    (or the wiring loom between the alternator and battery)

    Sounds like your electrics arent getting the juice they need

    make sure you get your battery checked out too.... most indy car shops will test for free.

    agreed, most likely alternator, have it checked to see that its putting out at least 14volts and that the battery is accepting charge.
