    Default Power steering failure

    Hi,
    Just reversing out of the local supermarket car park when the power steering light came on and the steering failed! Wrestled it back home and turned the engine off then on, and everything is fine again. Phoned vx to book it in but bit worried about driving it til then. Has anyone else had this happen and have vx sorted it or is it an intermittent problem? I've got a 2007 SRi.

    One morning the power steering warning light came on for me and no power steering. Switched it off and back on again and everything has been fine since (over 12 months)

    The power steering must run on windows lol, everytime we have a pc problem at work the standard reply is 'have you tried switching it off and back on again?'

    1.8 pre-facelift, I keep seeing the term CIM appearing in Q & A. What exactly is a CIM and how many are there on a C and what do they control? Some of you tech chaps will no boubt have the reply. Replys in a plain envelope please, just kidding.

    Mine does it every now and then, maybe once every 3 months or even less. Nothing to really worry about unless it keeps doing it
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
