    Default Issues with steering along with ABS and TC lights

    Hi guys I have a 3.2 Vectra GSI on a 53 plate. The TC and ABS light used to come on every now and again but more recently seem to be on all the time. The steering can also feel notchy at low speed and when trying to perform 3 point turns or parking the steering becomes very heavy. While the lights are on obviously the TC is not working but steering still feels power assisted.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers

    I would try disconnecting/conneting all related electrical connectors. Make sure they are clean and firmly attached/fully home. I had an intermittent ABS/TC combined warning light very occasionaly over the past 6 months then suddenly got a whole lot worse. It turned out to be the cable under the fns wheelarch that had started to break internal inuslation and was making an electrical path to voltage. Swapped cable for a new one and problem solved. Your problem may or may not be a single one.

    Hi Mate, Any faults showing. Worth considering your steering pump - have you checked your p/steering fluid level? Also get you alternator/battery checked to make sure both are in tip top condition - failing alternator can throw up some strange symptoms including p/steering issues.

    My tc and abs lights initialy came on intermitently over the last 3 months,recently they stayed on all the time. Despite taking the loom apart and cleaning it twice I ended up replacing the loom(£14.00) from vauxhall ...no more problems.

    Yep, exactly the same. The auto electrician who did mine stated that the cable had actually began to breakdown internally and was shorting out.
