Citroen c8 power steering fault

Intermittently my power steering locks when starting up, the stop light also comes on and ESP or EPS/ something else comes on dash. I am not convinced there is anything wrong with Power steering. I also had tyres tracking and balancing done in Oct 12 and this stopped happening and only started again about 2 weeks ago. HELP

Hi my eps light is comming on and i lose power streering how do i fix it


It cannot be fixed until the problem with the Electronic Power Steering(EPS) is properly diagnosed.
The power assist system is comprised of...
  • EPS computer unit
  • Warning light on the dashboard
  • A connection to the OBD2 Diagnostic port in the car
  • A Vehicle speed sensor
  • A sensor which detects steering rotation on the input shaft of the steering rack
  • An electric motor, which provides the power steering assistance to the steering rack. Unless that motor runs you will have no power assistance to your steering.
  1. You will need to have the system scanned with the appropriate scan tool through the OBD port in the car. This will generate various fault codes which assist in diagnosing where the problem lies in the power steering system. It may be just a failed sensor that needs replacing or it might be a bigger problem.
  2. Once the fault codes have been pulled the mechanics can diagnose the cause and make whatever repairs or parts changes may be required.
  3. This is not a do it yourself exercise. You will need a mechanic who knows these Japanese electronic power steering systems and who understands the fault codes (and there are many of them on this EPS system) to diagnose the problem for you and fix whatever fault(s) has arisen.

Esp light on 2001 aclass


Hi there lose of power steering and the eps light coming on could be the power steering pump is broken or near stuffed so will require a new pump. The other reason is that your power steering oil level is to low and needs toping up. Also check that the drive belts driving the power steering pump are tight and not slipping.

Hope this helps.

Loss of power steering and eps light coming on ,on vauxhall meriva 2006.


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Why does the car drag when changing gears? the various lights on the dashboard are blinking and it shows EPS


EPS indicates Electronic power steering warning light.---------The power steering needs to be inspected.The power steering pump, the power steering fluid, the power steering hose ,power steering belt and pulley. Get your car scanned by the dealer or at local car garage.That will be much helpful.As you will receive codes, as per codes you can replace the part or get the part checked.A fault in the wiring loop causes it to short on the steering column.This problem is very much noticed in Hyundai cars.-------

This will solve the problem or point you towards the cause of problem. Thank you for using fixya.

When driving the EPS light on the dash board come on and the sterring become stiff. when i turn off the ignition and start the engine again the EPS light come on and off normally and the every thing return...


EPS stands for Electric Power Steering. Hyundais have electric power steering instead of belt driven pumps. But they still require power steering fluid, Check the fluid to see if it is low. That would trigger the signal to come on.

The esp light coming on is indicating a fault......therefore a trouble code should be recorded within th ecu.......i would assume that a possible wheel sensor is intermittently faulty..but it is hard to come up with the left hand one or the right hand one.......if you take the car to a mechanic they should be able to connect a scan tool, which will provide you with a trouble code.....which will point you in the direction of the fault

Eps light is on and steering is stiff


EPS is activated only when the driver steers the steering wheel, thus reducing energy loss compared with the hydraulics. Its modular design allows for easy assembly. EPS consists of motor, electronic control unit (ECU), torque sensor and steering gear.
bar.gif Our unique control algorithm allows for improved handling. bar.gif Compact, light weight. bar.gif Capable of controlling motors from 25 to 80A. bar.gif Standardized column integrated or stand alone ECU.Basically its a electrically power steering to assist the driver to turn the steering wheel. Check the electronic control unit(ECU) for any short/burnout and the wiring should be pliable. If not then proper amount of current is not reaching the motor.
The light can light up if there a failure of the motor or any sensor is activated when this circuit has any problem.
Get i checked & repaired from their authorized Dealer and also get a service warranty for the part replaced as per norms out there.
However repair immediately otherwse you might find the steering wheel turning in haphazard manner or it could get locked while driving! .........................................sodeep
