Hi I would like to know how would I go about
'Volkswagen Polo 1.9TDi 74KW, 2006 model sedan. Instrument cluster will reset, all lights come on sometimes with a loud beep sometimes with the horn also. It started first when I turn steering wheel to max either side then the airbag light will come on and I will loose power steering, then when switch off and restart all is fine but all counters are reset on the instrument cluster. Most recent incident when I was driving on highway and slacking off to take an exit then all the lights on dash was lit, lost power steering and loud beeping and I switched off engine and restarted (while freeing at high speed) then all OK again. Seems to happen more frequently but intermittent.' - has been answered - "'I had the same problem after I had my car serviced, the problem with the power steering was that the signal to the power steering pump was set to high and the pump cut out because it was receiving an incorrect signal, the instruments reseting was found that alot of the ground wires was loose, for some reason the abs sensor was also not adjusted correctly which made the abs light come on as well. I took the car to another service centre and they adjusted the abs sensor and the signal to the pump and checked all my wirring - had no problems since - Christiaan from South Africa'"
