  1. Hi, Hoping someone might be able to help me with a problem I'm having with my car - '06 Fiesta 1.6 Diesel. Recently, and now pretty much every journey, I play powersteering roulette. When I start the car, I sometimes have powersteering and sometimes don't. Sometimes it kicks in after about 20 seconds, sometimes it doesn't. I've had the car checked out by 2 garages. The first has said I need a new steering rack and recommended not to drive the car. The other garage couldn't find any issue or replicate the problem?! I've been told that the powersteering pump/motor is working fine, there doesn't appear to be any leaks from that or the rack. If I've been without powersteering, sometimes when I restart the engine a few times, I can get it to kick back in. Also, once the powersteering is working, it never cuts out and there is never a warning light on the dash. I'm getting the feeling that it might be an electrical problem...maybe a faulty connector? Any help or ideas would be much appreciated. Look forward to hearing from anyone. Cheers
