Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a 2004 Holden Briana. The electric power steering is failing where it becomes really hard to turn. You can reset it by turning off the car and restarting it.. until it fails again. The Holden dealer says it has an earthing fault and could cost up to $3500 to fix.. any ideas?? Is this a known problem ..are there any specialized businesses in Melb that can fix or repair the car

I suspect this could be your battery at fault.
Get it heavy discharge tested first.

Best suggestion I can make is make sure the power steering fluid is in the full range (either hot if you've been driving more than 20 miles, or cold if the engine has been off). Always check the fluid with the engine off. If the fluid smells burnt, have a mechanic check the power steering pump for damage. Also check around the area for any leaks.
Another thing to look at is the wiring and fuses for the power steering and speedometer. Try to follow them to see if there's any bare, rubbing, broken, or loose wires. Electrical systems are a pain to diagnose specifically, and it may be better to have a mechanic look at it for you but fuses are easy to check.

after replacing the battery, battery replacement has to be registered in the power module.Newer bmw's can experience battery draw issues. usually after battery replacment the active steering has to be re-aligned. you can try turning the steering wheel lock to lock to see if that solves your problem (usually only works on older cars) if you can find a shop that has a GT1 (bmw's older diagnostic equipment) they should be able to reset the light. At the same time if the vehicle has a battery draw and the power module is disconnecting the battery when the charge level gets low,that is your root problem and you will end up with an active steering fault over and over
