    Default tech 2

    right...ive had the steering wheel ! mark for as long as I have had the car and was wondering if anyone in the county durham region has a tech 2 machine to reset the fault. I went to the dealers and the said £75 just to have a look and clear faults which might not get rid of the symbol. The steering is perfectly normal and has been since I got the car. could anyone out there have a look at it and sort the thing out once and for all cos I'm sick of looking at the thing..

    could you not disconnect the battery for a while, might clear it if the fault no longer exists... just a thought.

    In my view, I feel that if the symbol didn't clear itself after disconnecting the battery, whatever the problem is, it's still there. Generally, the warning lights only light while they are detecting a problem, and go out if the problem has gone (although still retain the code, and light briefly when the car is first started).

    It may just be a faulty sensor, which won't affect the steering. However, maybe the fluid is a bit low or the pump is faulty. In any it would be safe to get it properly checked out. Imagine if the power steering decided to fail as you were driving down a motorway.

    You may find that the dealer would be prepared to waive the cost of the check if you had the work carried out with them. If there was no serious problem, then it may be worth the £75 for peace of mind.
