    Default Little help with funny steering

    Hey guys
    I've got a 53 plate vectra 3.2v6 gsi with 65k on the clock.
    The tc and abs light is on now from usually when I start the car (but not always) when engines running and stationary I turn the steering wheel I get a notchy feel feedback and when and low speeds for example parking the steering goes heavy.
    When I start the car and the tc and abs lights aren't on they usually cone on when I turn the wheel.

    Any ideas please as this is a little annoying

    Cheers

    Because sometimes when the alternator is playing up, the electric power steering pump starts to cut out intermittently.
