Get your battery charged and get it tested. The steering wheel fault is generated usually when low battery power occurs, and once restored, and car is driven a few feet,it clears itself..

SOURCE: Power steering went out on 2000 VW Golf - Battery ind. light on.

hi, if the 2 problems happened at the same time then probably your alternator belt has broken, as the power steering is also run off the same belt

Testimonial: "Actually the serpentine belt broke which powers a variety of things, power steering pump, alternator, water pump etc."

Lost power steering, car died, changed battery, and barley made it home. The battery has power, but when you turn the key on the dome light and other lights, radio, windows, etc don't work.


Sounds like the vehicle is not charging you may need a new alternator get the car going with jump leads again and test the voltage at the battery terminals with a DC volt meter expect 13.5-14.5 if you get less than 13.5 your alternator is bad or wiring fault also check the alternator belt is tight.

How do I stop my car showing ABS, POWER STEERING and BREAKING SYSTEM lights and beeping.?


-First able check all the belts. If any loose. (I mean not tight or good tension).
-If all tensions are good then turn on the car, let it run for 10-15 minutes and check the voltage at the battery. If it's below 13 volts
then the problem is the alternator.

Good Luck

Car shuts off, battery light comes on, steering wheel locks up, all while driving


I am assuming you mean you loose power steering when the steering wheel locks up, which would be a normal event if the engine dies. Same goes for the battery light since the alternator would stop charging the battery.
Someone will need to figure out if you are loosing fuel or spark when the engine dies, then troubleshoot the problem. It may be difficult to find if the mechanic can not duplicate the problem in the shop.

Hi I would like to know how would I go about adjusting my 1999 polo playa 1.6i clutch cause it is to high can any1 help thanks 4 your advise


'Volkswagen Polo 1.9TDi 74KW, 2006 model sedan. Instrument cluster will reset, all lights come on sometimes with a loud beep sometimes with the horn also. It started first when I turn steering wheel to max either side then the airbag light will come on and I will loose power steering, then when switch off and restart all is fine but all counters are reset on the instrument cluster. Most recent incident when I was driving on highway and slacking off to take an exit then all the lights on dash was lit, lost power steering and loud beeping and I switched off engine and restarted (while freeing at high speed) then all OK again. Seems to happen more frequently but intermittent.' - has been answered - "'I had the same problem after I had my car serviced, the problem with the power steering was that the signal to the power steering pump was set to high and the pump cut out because it was receiving an incorrect signal, the instruments reseting was found that alot of the ground wires was loose, for some reason the abs sensor was also not adjusted correctly which made the abs light come on as well. I took the car to another service centre and they adjusted the abs sensor and the signal to the pump and checked all my wirring - had no problems since - Christiaan from South Africa'"

Battery went low. when charged VDC light and slp light came on.Any quick fix Thanks.


light should go out, when you start driving. if it does not, than you will have to go to nissan dealer and have your "steering angle sensor" recalibrated. you need nissan scan tool to do that. there is a procedure for it that may need to be performed.
