I've got a 55 plate ford fiesta 1.6 tdci with the electro

Resolved Question:

Hello I've got a 55 plate ford fiesta 1.6 tdci with the electro hydraulic pump, recently got a fault with the pump and now I've lost all power steering and as the car runs the ignition lights light up and go off, I've tested both plugs to the pump the main power lead is showing live and earth but the smaller plug with 3 wires is only showing live through the green wire with blue stripe but the grey with purple wire shows neither live or earth nor does the blue with white stripe.

Ignition on
Pin 1- thick red wire - 12 volts
Pin2 - thick blavk wire - earth
Small 3 pin plug
Pin 1- (green/blue wire ) = 12 volts
Pin 2 - CAN BUS LOW (blue/white wire ) = roughly 2.36 volts
