Fiat Punto Electric Power Steering column - Common Fault

Fiat Punto power steering fault

 

This electric power steering column is a very common failure for the Fiat Punto, normally the fault will cause the power steering to completely fail and bring on the red steering wheel light (EPS warning) on the dash.

The loss of power steering assistance will make the vehicle extremely heavy to manoeuvre, especially when trying to park.
