Hi, my name is***** your mechanic automotive expert, and I will be happy to assist you today. In some cases, I may need more information to assist better. I apologize for any delay.

Dear customer, what you are presenting are problems at the power steering level, I do not know the model of your Volkswagen but many golf models work with powered-assisted steering. The electric steering is a steering that works with an electric motor located in the steering stem which receives the signal from a sensor located on the steering wheel which when turning left or right gives the signal to the engine, so that the steering is smoothed when we have problems in one of these sets of steering operation they begin to activate the indicators that you present on the dashboard, for example: the car sliding is an indicator of the stability system or the anti-skid system and it is not working correctly, the indicator on the steering wheel is precisely an indicator of problems in the steering and all this is accompanied by problems in the steering lock.

The ideal is to start a computerized diagnosis because having these indicators on the dashboard means that there are sensors that are commanding these indicators to be activated.

The diagnosis will verify not only the engine operation but also the operation of the steering and stability system.

My goal is to give you the best advice i can based on your description, I hope to be helpful, if you have any doubt please do not hesitate to reply back.
Kind regards, Sebastian.
