Colt diesel. EPS intermittent fault

Customer Question

2006 104,000 miles Colt diesel auto 1.5 DID CZ2. EPS light stays on, and steering becomes hard - no power assist. Intermittent, and most times a quick left/right turn of wheel will "kick-start" it. Light goes out and I have power steering. Q. Is there an ecu on this car? I have been told that rack plus electric motor will need replacing, either a new unit (£750 from Mitsubishi plus fitting/vat), a recon part (£360) or a used part (£100). Who can recondition mine/ supply one with 2 year guarantee? And what is likely cause? Thanks
