    Still no reply, they can't want business that badly. Strangely the last couple of days the steering has more consistently worked.

    Okay, I've found this place and sent enquiries there, though if I believe their Ebay store its nearly £300 for a steering column fix, if that's what's wrong. I sent them info, and if it comes down to it, I could drive up there and see them. http://www.glasgowpowersteering.co.uk/contact-us/

    Thanks for the response, but I'll be honest that most of this is over my head. My knowledge of car mechanics is pretty nil, but I thought that wiring loom looked a bit dodgy. Is that connected (no pun intended) to what you're talking about. After all MaxWheeler mentions that his Nan lives in...

    Okay, what part of the pic are you referring to exactly, is it one of the wiring looms?

    Fair enough, I'm taking it in on Tuesday to get the fault codes read anyway. Here's the summary with how it's working now... NATS Lights on....at the same time power steering is disengaged. Power Steering warning light works on self test at ignition but never comes on at any other time...

    The oil change was only when the Engine Management light came on and there was some harsh gear shifting. There had been fault codes stored then related to gear ratios. That was when the oil change was suggested. This was before the power steering problem manifested itself. Afterwards, they...

    Appreciate the response, it was just a total beginners guess and understand I'm trying to think of any cause here. I'll try and get it read again and see if I can get a record of the errors. Sometimes the engine management light comes on briefly and then the power steering will engage...

    Here's a question, could the NATS light coming on interfere with the power steering electrics in some way? Understand I'm just theorising here. I'm trying to think in a reason why this is happening yet the Power Steering warning light itself is not coming on. What do you mean by a bad CANbus...

    What exactly is a bad CANnus? The wiring loom to me just didn't seem right with that loose green wire. Unless thats a wire related to the aftermarket rear parking sensors.

    The only thing that's been done to the car since I got it was a replacement wiper blade and a replacement sidelight bulb on the drivers side. The battery hasn't been changed, charged or otherwise disconnected. This all just happened suddenly. I've tried both keys in case there is a fault with...

    I'm located in Ayrshire in Scotland. Troon to be precise, about 20-25 miles south west of Glasgow. pimval, he says flat out he's never heard of EPS steering failure and that he had sold a few Micras. He had heard of leaks, which even I know would come from power steering fluid in hydraulic...

    On February I traded in my 2007 Renault Megane saloon. I live on my own and wanted a smaller runabout that was cheap to insure and run. I have an auto licence and getting hold of a small auto is pretty difficult, especially when like me you're on a limited budget. The garage that I had bought...
