In need of some advice guys,
I was driving home and had the warning lights on the dash go off! then the following message "power assist failure" then my steering locked up and was crazy stuff, i really struggled to get to a safe place. I turned it off, then back on after five mins then drove some more because i was so close to home and made it to the last corner and it locked up again?
i was looking around her for a while and finally discovered that the battery light came on which prompted me to look at the fuse box in the engine bay and there was a a badly corrosion fuse which happened to the the battery smart charging fuse?
so i know in the 1.8 TDCI the power steering runs of the alternator not the engine belt, so would the crap fuse cause my battery to drain due to poor charging and there for cause me power steering to mess up? getting some new fuses tomorrow when the shop open!
Really hope this is a easy fix!
Any advice would be sweet!
P.s my power steering fluid levels is spot on lol
