Question about 2005 Volkswagen Jetta

2005 jetta power steering amber warning light, trouble ?

2005 jetta power steering amber warning light is illuminated.
owner's manual says it is a "caution" that there may be a problem with the power steering.
I cannot find the power steering fluid reservoir, so it must be that I have the Jetta with electromechanical power steering, and not hydraulic PS. I am have not noticed any reduction in the power assist, nor any other difficulty in steering. My car is the 2.5L, 5 cylinder,
.
Do I need to worry about this? My local dealer will charge me a minumum of $89 just to look at the car and do a diagnosis.
So I need some help!
thanks

If you do not know what you are talking about you really should stay out of a conversation. It dose not have a power steering pump or a reservoir or suction! It is electronic and needs scanned with a computer. God people open mouth and insert huge foot. Stay with your night time job your dam sure no mechanic!

Is it yellow or red? Sounds like a waring light for used front brake pads.

First and foremost, (if not already done) check the powersteering resevoir to make sure it has fluid and it is full as well as having no leaks. If it's leaking you may see small dark areas where you frequently park, on the ground. If it is full, there is a chance you need a new one, a hose/line is broken or has a hole (leak). A mechanic is your best choice to find this out. If the resevoir is empty or low, (can be checked hot or cold; look for level indicators for each on dipstick); fill it up and drive for a day or two - check the fluid again (make note of any difference in steering after filling. Powersteering pump may also be belt driven, so make sure the belt is tight (no cracks, etc.) may need to replace belt.

SOURCE: Windshield washer fluid pump quit. 2005 Jetta

I have a 2003 Jetta and the fuse box is between the dashboard and the drivers side door. There is a lid that covers it on the dashboard side. Inside there is a diagram/fuse card. The card has one top rectangular series of fuses numbered 8 through 23. Below is a square series numbered 24 through 44. The washer fuse is number 24 on the top left of the bottom square series. For me, I checked the fuse and it was good, therefore I am assuming that my pump is dead.

2005 Jetta power steering fuse


I have never heard of electric power steering, though never put it past Volkswagen to try something new!
Call any Volkswagen dealer and ask the parts or the service department.
All of the power steering I have ever heard of were "hydraulic", meaning they were engine-driven oil & pump type.
God bless your efforts.

This is not a good warning light as it relates to your Braking system !!!

Brake system warning light

brake_fluid_light_72.jpg
This light will remain illuminated when the handbrake is engaged. Illumination after releasing the handbrake may indicate low brake fluid level (MUST CHECK THIS IMMEDIATELY AND RECTIFY).

Hope the information is useful ... be extremely careful and attend to this warning immediately if it is still on with your handbrake off and brake fluid top up!

Steering warning light on 2005 suzuki reno


Speed Sensitive Power Steering
(SSPS) Warning Light
If your vehicle has Speed Sensitive Power
Steering (SSPS), this warning light will
come on briefly when you turn the ignition
to ON as a check to show you the bulb is
working.
Then it should go out after a few seconds.
If the warning light does not come on, have
it fixed so it will be able to warn you if there
is a problem.
If the warning light stays on, or comes on
while you are driving, the SSPS system
may not be working. If this happens, see
your SUZUKI dealer for service.

1993 ecilpse Amber warning light lite on dash


This light represents the coolant level. If your coolant level sensor detects a lack of coolant, it will come on. I would advise filling your car to the proper level and also have a mechanic inspect your cooling system to find out why your coolant level dropped.

Good luck!
