    Angry Power Steering Failure

    Hi,

    got a 2004 vectra, 2.0 litre which I have owned for a couple of months.
    The power steering suddenly failed last week with very little notice, just wondered if others have experienced this?

    It is like driving a tank without it, makes life very difficult!!
    Steering fluid level is full so its not that and I can't see any problems with the electrical connection..

    any ideas?? hopefully not the pump as i've forked out enough already on this car

    Hi db,have you any trouble codes stored,if not sometimes the spring in the checkvalve blockes the valve.the steering is electric over hydraulic,so a faulty alternator will give power steering failure,check the voltage across battery with engine running you should have about 14volts.
