    Default (video) Alternator changed, battery light, power steering light still on ????????????

    Video of the car idling on the drive after the alternator was changed ( same problems as before )
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3mAv8yXE6U&feature=g-upl



    So after having intermittent problems with the power steering light coming on, abs flashing, dials switching off then on, engine occasionally not starting I changed the alternator today and thought I had fixed it.

    Drove 8 miles to Virginia Water fine and then dials died, power steering went off again, battery light came on etc etc same as before the change.

    I have taken a video of the car idling back at home after having to disconnect the battery for 30 sec to get the car restarted in the car park.

    Someone has mention a connection behind the steering wheel? I have looked in the haynes manual but it doesn't mention anything about it, could it be that ? how would I go about fixing it/replacing it and what with and where from ?

    Thankyou for any help offered

    I have found the abs connector ( two plugs next to each other ) how do get to the one behind the steering wheel ? does the wheel need to come off ? I have found the two screws behind the wheel holding the cowl on but undoing them doesn;t seem to allow it to come off ?

    Any ideas, I have tried removing fuse 17 and replacing that, no luck, so will try spraying all of the connections with wd40 when I get some tomorrow but would like to get to the one behind the wheel if I can.

    you also need to remove the dash strips on the dashboard... then you will see whats holding the top cowling on, its basically two slots which go down towards the clocks.

    Cheers, I got it off just by unscrewing the two screw and flipping the hood back. I will try wd40 in all the connections tonight if that fails then I will have to pay vauxhall to fix it as I am all out of ideas.
