    Angry Signum 2.0dti steering failed

    My Signum 2.0dti (2005)steering failed whilst driving along and a warning light came on. The AA were called out and after checking the fluid was ok they checked some fuses but all seemed ok but still no steering. They then towed me to a garage and they went about trying to fing the fault but to no avail, then all of a sudden it came back so they took it for a test and it has failed again. Any suggestions as this is not only annoying it is downright dangerous.

    as above, could be steering rack or alternator on the way out not producing enough power for it... Power steering is always the first to go, get someone to check out the alternator first..

    It happened to me too, i had the pump replaced at a cost of £560 from VX all inclusive. However not sure if you know, The Power steering pump on the Insignia is the same part no as the Vectra C(on my car) but the Insignia was £200 cheaper! So they told me!!!
