    Default faulty power steering pump

    Finally got round to sticking the car into local Vx dealer (just before Network Q runs out!!) due to steering intermittently feeling heavier than at other times, they've diagnosed it as the pump, but before they can proceed an area rep' from Network Q needs to check the car etc to validate it, as repair bill will be over £600 crazy price in my opinion!!
    I had a word with the workshop controller there and asked him how they diagnosed it was the pump and was told they tech 2'd it and saw some stored fault codes which verified it was the pump; question is , would this not have flagged up a warning light on the dash?
    Cheers Pete

    Just because there is stored fault codes at the pump does'nt mean it is the pump, could be wiring or a number of things. The current way they do things IMO is crazy they play a game of trial and error which involves peoples wallets (Luckily its NETQ this time).

    The problem is all they do is plug in the fault code readers and believe exactly what they tell them. No codes = no faults. All dealers seem to have lost the ability to fault diagnose the old way, with a brain and training!!!!
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
