Could This Be Power Steering Problem?
Posted 27 February 2013 - 07:32 PM
I managed to straighten up, engine was still running, revved the engine and the lights went out and power steering was back.
Could this be power steering linked? I had a problem last year of noise and it was ps belt slipped off but as car warmed the belt was getting back into place.

This is weird, the loss of ps has not happened again however a couple of other things have happened recently maybe cold weather related or not. 2 days ago starting ok in the morning the low fuel and water temp lights came on and the digital display dissappeared, rev of engine and all returned to normal, this morning mileage and clock display dissappeared and petrol guage showed empty when I know I had a good half tank, on revving the whole display seemed to reset with with it cycling through display as if it was a self test and again all returned to normal giving correct data.
Any ideas why and could it be linked to first post on here?

Thanks Nathan, was hoping was a one off with ps and then nothing for a week or so. Will get those checked

I mean the coolant temperature warning may be because the belt is slipping on the water pump, have a look while the engine is running just after starting it and watch the belt for any excessive flex and slide, it should have no more than half an inch of play.
