    Default steering wheel sign on my dash....

    tried to drive to work this morning and i noticed a steering wheel sign on the dash with a exclamtion mark. Thought it was just the snow at 1st but realised my sterring was none existent. Turned around and came home and turned car off, turned back on and it was fine??? must have been the deep snow around my car 1st thing this mornin, anyhow i decided to walk to work as i only live about a mile or so away, didnt wanna smash my snowwies on the kerbs did i haha..

    Will need to be tech2'd but after a quick search, it could be down to the ABS unit or steering angle sensor.... ?

    My old car did this just the once. On reflection I think I was trying to turn the wheel as the car started up if that makes sense. Don't know why that would make a difference, but it never happened again.

    Mine was paid for by vx. It was the power steering ecu and motor. It only happend once but i wasnt going to take the risk of it happening again! Dont know how much it coist, but i dont think it was cheap. This might not be the problem with yours, its just an idea, as it happened to me. Hope you get to the bottom of it mate.

    edit: this happened while parking on a car park
