    I had light come on on mine, shortly after I replaced Alternator. The alternator is a sod to get out through the top of the engine bay, if your fuel filter will not come out, I took the easier option of removing driverside wheel, drop link and got it out that way fitting is reverse.

    Anyhow, my point if the garage who did your alternator did it that way they may as I did just catch the wiring on the steering sensor, and snap on off. Check the sensor wiring at the connector, should be 3 wires coming out of it.

    As I said I did that and did not notice, not sure I actually broke it right off as the light did not come on until a couple of weeks after the alternator change, I may have damaged it enough for vibration to finish the job..

    Thanks for that. That's exactly what happened. Gonna have to strip it right out to see if the sensor is damaged.
