    Default Power Steering Warning Light - Ugh!

    Came on tonight when I started the engine. Turned it off and restarted and it went away, hasnt come back since - hope it was a glitch! Wishful thinking probably.

    anything I can check?

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI NAV XP

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 72K

    Default

    On some models (like the 1.8) it is at the back behind the engine, on others (like the 2.0T) it is underneath the front driver's side light cluster. Will be one or the other.

    As for the warning lamp, as a general rule, if it lights up, goes out straight away and does not recur, it is most likely to be a software glitch.

    it's not rare for it to fail to 'boot' when you start, but as long as it's a 'one only' time then i'd not worry..
