Question about 2006 Volkswagen Passat
Battery went flat and when I restarted I had a red steering wheel fault light and no power steering. There are 3loud beeps when I start the car. Help please
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..

turn the lights on and off then try starting the car. some how it restarts the system and you can drive off. my car does the same thing and when i do that i can always start the car

may be that the alternator isnt supplying enough voltage and the system isnt working correctly due to that,put a new battery in dont just jump start not always ideal

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."
