    Default Fault code with no power steering

    I started the car up after an engine rebuild. Its been sat for 3 months now.
    When it started all seemed fine until trying to drive. no steering. Then small noise like a knocking every second or two.
    I then turned it off and waited half hour or so. Turned ignition, car with spanner still there. Started fine and all lights went out, steering was fine. I moved the car up the road slightly and drove into my parking area. Got nearly there, steering went again and then came back. Did a 180 and reversed into space.
    Turned off to try again to check.
    When i started it next 2 times I had spanner again and then steering wheel with ! in. This then went the third time just leaving spanner when ignition on which goes when running. Now have no power steering at all.
    Disconnected battery for half hour to clear fault and same issue. Still got knocking noise.
    What could be the obvious signs without a code reader?
    Its a Z22YH.
    Anyone in Bristol got a code reader?
    Thanks

    without a code reader my next step would be to get a multimeter & make sure the battery is being charged when the engine is running as the power steering will cut out if it isn't .
