    Default Power steering?

    Started car yesterday, steering wheel icon then illuminated. I switched off engine and went to restart again but it wont turn over just clicks. handbook states that the icon is to do with the power steering. I am struggling to understand why the car wont start and i get steering wheel warning icon any more.

    Thanks Matt

    Mine has just done this. I had the starting problem first. Is it clicking the starter or not? Mine was totally dead. When you drive it around the clocks die and power steering is lost. Its in VX now but no one can get into repair because of the snow. I think mines the CIM

    Only way I can get it to start is disconnect the battery for 30mins then try it. Works for me until the next time
