    Default 1.9cdti 150bhp 55 plate vectra power steering stopped operating

    Hi guys, recently serviced the throttle body on my vectra and whalst removing the allen key bolts, unbeknown to me there was a stray wire coming from the battery which the heat shrink seal had pulled loose from, exposing it. The screw driver then arked on this wire causing a spark. (like a numb idiot i'd forgotten to disconnect the battery)

    upon refitting throttle body after cleaning, and starting engine the power steering warning icon came on the dash and power steering is non operational. Consulting the owners hand book led me to a number 9 fuse in the fusebox right hand engine side.
    Multi meter tested this and its ok. There must be other fuses in the system relating to the electro power steering, does anybody know where they are located???????

    Power steering was fine before this nightmare! Tried to sort one problem and got another one, typical!

    Any help would be appreciated, cheeers

    Vehicle : Vauxhall Vectra Hatch

    Trim : SRI with added X-Pack

    Engine : 1.9 16v 150

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : Near 100K

    Default

    Id check all fuses in the car, there is athe fuse box in the engine bay, and one in the n/s of the boot, there may also be one at one side of the dashboard.
    if all fuses are ok, id try disconnecting the battery for an hour, then reconnecting it and try again, failing that you may need to find a garage that can read any dtc's from the EPS module and try deleting any dtc's or resetting the EPS memory.

    Cheers cobra, its sorted now. Turned out to be a 80amp fuse in the relay to the battery that had melted in half! Quick fix thankfully.

    Also how do you close threads when the problem is resolved????
