In this video I will show you how to temporary fix a Power Steering failure on a Fiat Punto MK2 (W Reg).

There are many reasons why the EPS (Electric Power Steering) will stop working:

1. Battery too weak
2. Torque Sensor Failure
3. Speedo Sensor Failure (Non ABS models)
4. Condensation Fowling
5. Motor Failure
6. Basic Electric Faults (Fuse/Relay)
7. Dry Solder - Motor Failure

Although most of the time, the battery is to blame the occasional light on and power steering stops / works half the time.

Motor Failure is more common in Pre 2003 models, where the motor uses a relay set. Yes changing the motor can be a possible cure.

If the battery is old and weak - that can also be easy to eliminate without diagnostic, but motor/speedo/torque sensor etc all have to be fault coded to find out what is actually wrong.

As said in the video you use this fix at your VERY OWN RISK and again I take no responsibilities for any damage this may cause to your vehicle!!!

If you need any further help then please leave a comment below or inbox me! :)

Have a safe drive!
