    Default Power steering fault

    Hi all, hoping for help on an intermittent power steering fault, on occasion I get a warning light on the dash and the steering becomes impossibly stiff, I simply pull over and cut the engine an it is fine again once started, it rarely happens but potentially dangerous
    Any suggestions welcome

    Matt

    Id double check the voltage from your alternator and also check your power steering fluid level.

    Forgive the ignorance but is there a way to check the alternator in a way as to rule this out as the cause rather that just replacing it? Thanks for the replies by the way
