Hi all,

Car has 62k miles on the clock and has been running ok. Now needs a HPFP which is booked in to the garage. Went to move it the othe day but battery had gone flat. Charged ok and reading 14.9v. But in the mean time had to use a different battery to move it. This is when the steering became impossible to use. I put the geniune charged battery in and it made no difference to steering.

No error codes either except for new ABS codes which I had not had before.

I went to check the fluid levels only I cannot find the canister under the bonnet?! (picture attached). So now I am not sure whether it is electric motoro or hydraulic? Anyone know ?

Also can anyone suggest a reason for the steering going the way it has?

Thanks in advance! 9535f892-d84c-4509-b428-3a127dc15a4d.jpg 9535f892-d84c-4509-b428-3a127dc15a4d.jpg

You could try to reset everything by disconnecting the battery for 30 minutes.
This quite often does the trick.
