    Default Power steering stopped working

    Just got the car back from garage after a little accident, and the power steering has stopped working, I have checked the fuse on the passenger side fusebox and that is fine, are there any other fuses or relays that are related to the power steering??, Its a 2.0 Dti vectra C 2003. Also I have hooked it up with OP-COM and it cannot connect with EHPS power steering.
    There is a steering wheel symbol in the fault screen flashing aswell.

    it could be many things..

    they didn't reconnect the pump when they rebuilt the car..
    the pump has been damaged in the accident and they haven't replaced it ( very likely the fault)
    the CIM module cannot connect with the EHPS module..

    my very first thing i would do is to send it back to the repairer and ask them to sort it.. they have ducked doing the pump as they are expensive...and fragile...a knock will usually kill the pump.

    your telling me as they are about £600 and your right if the pump does get a wack it can kill it off so as mark said take the car back to the garage and get them to sort it out
