    Angry help what next

    Just had the engine change and now have the power steering light on and no power steering. Took it to auto electrician who could not get a signal from it so he said theres either no power getting to the spower steering pump or the pump is knackered.

    The pump in my car is at the back of the engine to the left looks a bit like a plastic milk bottle wiht a black cap should i check the fluid levels would that cause the problem.

    Im only an electrician so any help would be gratefull

    I'd say something wasn't put back correctly, the engine like anything really should have been removed by disconnecting everything one at a time carefully noting where each part goes, then reassembled in reverse order.
    Some people don't do this, they get to the end and go "oh i've got 6 screws left over" *scratch head* "nevermind probably not important".

    The pump is located under the drivers side wing behind the front bumper, you sure its at the back of your engine. Yes check the fluid but as said sounds like something might be unplugged
