    Default Power steering light

    Hi all,

    Recently when i put ignition on the power steering light comes on and the ABS light flashes.
    Car starts fine only the steering wheel is rock hard.Seems to only happen when car is stoped for a long time (ex : after my shift at work/home).
    When this happens i turn ignition off and on again and light dnt show again??
    Informed the place were i bought the car from and they say , that they had a look and everything is fine.Thing is still happening.Tempted in take it to vauxhall dealer and see wot they say.

    Any help welcome!

    Thanks in advance

    The reservoir is under the wheel arch at the front behind the bumper. To check it you need to remove the plastic wheel arch liner. So there might be a good chance they did not check it...............

    Well been reading this tread:
    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=32051

    And its not easy job checking in a 2.0T, and judging by the time they took looking at it , they were lying when they say they had a look and everything was fine.

    Cause its not an easy job on a 2.0T cause bumper and drivers headlight as to came off to just check steering fluid.
