Sorry to have to bring this subject up again but it has happened in my 54 CMax 1.6 DcI. Over the past few months I havew noticed a distinct "hunting" on low rev acceleration and this has got worse over the period. Now, today, having been stationery but ticking over for 15/20 mins, the engine cut on acceleration. It started again but kept cutting out until the "Steering Assist Failure" warning came up - no other warning lights though. Managed to get it home. Could the "hunting" and the steering fault be linked?

Anyone with any ideas on the suibject?

i was thinking the hunting can be causing a power issue, effecting the pump...maybe the reason for PAS failure. Best to get a diagnostics done on this one before it turns into a right safety issue.
