C1005 Fiat Punto Electric Power Steering - Common Fault

Fiat Punto power steering fault

Fiat Punto vehicles manufactured between 1999 to 2011 are prone to the failure of their electronic power steering motor, or EPS. This fault results in the intermittent loss of power steering, and even a complete failure of the unit, which is unfortunately a common occurrence for many Fiat owners.


EPS Fault Codes

Diagnostic equipment can assist in identifying the stored fault codes for the Fiat Punto C1005 and C1006 – Steering Column Motor Torque Position Sensor, along with C1007 – Power Steering Fault, both indicating a malfunction with the power steering motor.


High Replacement Costs

A full brand new replacement might sound tempting at first, but this will lead to high costs, and even longer wait times, in addition to this, the new unit will still contain the original fault, which can lead to the new EPS potentially failing again in the future.

We offer a cost-effective solution to this problem, your EPS will be rebuilt within 2-3 working days, at a fraction of the price, and you will not have to worry about long wait times, or the fault developing again.
