    Default Power steering failure???

    Last Saturday morning I was driving home when I had to slow right down to squeeze between two vehicles, down a hill and came off the gas, and about 10 yards past I found the steering had gone very stiff??
    I checked the dash, and there were no warning lights, and the engine was still running, so I stopped at s9ome lights at the bottom of the hill, and turned off the ignition, and then re-started , and it was fine??? been ok since too???

    i had something similar a couple of years ago. i was parked with the engine off. started the engine & saw the orange steering wheel with exclamation mark symbol on the display in the rev counter. tried the steering wheel & it was very heavy. turned the engine off, then back on, no symbol in the rev counter, steering worked as normal & it hasnt happened since.
