Mark :

Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try help you with this.

Mark :

The first thing to check is the charging system.

Mark :

If the ecu doesn't detect a rise in voltage then it doesn't switch the steering on.

Mark :

What you can try is start the engine, rev the engine to 1500 rpm and then try the power steering as you drive off.

Mark :

When I said rev the engine to 1500 rpm, I mean for a few seconds and then let it return to idle before driving off and checking the steering.

Customer:

Thank you. Will try that and reply to you

Mark :

Ok. Let me know how it goes.
