    Default Funny Steering

    Whilst out for a drive this afternoon, nearly missed a turning and turned quite sharply, on straightening up steering became very heavy like power steering was not working - stopped to see if I had a puncture causing the problem and both front tyres were OK. When I restarted the engine steering was fine - at no point did any warning lights come on, anyone else had a similar experience or know the cause of the problem ?

    Were you the previous owner of my Vectra? I'm going thru the same fault myself. It's off to the dealers on the 29th Dec...

    At worst, Power Steering ECU and Pump, at best, a loose cable somewhere

    Had this exact same problem on mine, when idle with engine on is there any noise when u steer from left to right? Mine had a knocking and kinda ratchet noise turned out to be suspension top mount bearings had gone, got it sorted at dealers without too much cost. There is also a small knuckle at the bottom of the steering rack which can sieze up and tighten causing the steering to be tight, think its about £90for the part tho, iff it was an elec fault i think the ps light would have came on
