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.

    I apologize, I wasn't thinking. I am not familiar with a purely electrical power steering setup. I'm sorry. Is the power steering setup like a type of module you can replace? With electric motors it's hard to tell exactly what's wrong.

Fiat punto 1.4 diesel has faulty powersteering,it works and some times doesnt work


Could be the power steering pump. Could be the rack and pinion. If you have power assist, then this where I would start. Electrical and such.

Powersteering is hard to steer fill reservior with fluid but fluid gone in 10 mins


You need your power steering repaired by a professional, it is obviously losing oil and that is why it is hard to steer.

Whilst driving along the electrics gradually cut out, starting with the radio, power steering,instrument panel then totally cuts out on a fiat seicento


check your battery cables make sure there tight and secure but what i think you will find is a fuseable link going from the battery to the wiring harness has blown and once you replace that!! then you need to find the component that cause it to blow which wil probably be the heater motor also check and make sure your alternator belt didnt fall off
