2010-2015 Ford Focus and C-Max power steering motor failure.

Focus and C-Max Power Steering Motor fault

The Ford Focus and C-Max power steering motor and combined module, fitted to the build range 2010 to 2015, is a common failing part.

This rack mounted electric power steering motor and module will often fail completely and suddenly, leading to a complete loss of power assisted steering. This will cause the steering to become very heavy, requiring the person driving the car to input a lot more effort into the steering wheel, also the warning message: ‘Power steering fault service required’ will appear on the Focus and C-Max dash cluster.

The root cause of this failure is internal component breakdown within the power steering motor and module and the most commonly reported fault code associated with this malfunction is 'U3000 – internal failure' that often will not clear until the internal fault is resolved.

Ford Main agents and Dealerships will only sell replacements as part of a full steering rack setup, the 2010-2015 Focus and C-Max power steering motor is not available for purchase separately making replacement unnecessarily expensive.

Our test and rebuild service will save you a lot of money, and due to our very high standard of work, we provide an unlimited mile Lifetime Warranty on every steering motor we rebuild*

Test and rebuild:

When we receive the Focus and C-Max power steering motor and module it is tested using our HIL (Hardware In-the-Loop) vehicle simulators. If the unit fails during these rigorous tests we will strip and rebuild the unit using only the highest grade components. Once this is done the power steering motor and module is retested under our high level quality control environment.

 

Programming:

This power steering motor is coded to the vehicle, however all original programming is retained within the module meaning that when received back it’s a case of: fit and go.

Due to the power steering motor and module not being available to purchase separately from the rack setup, our rebuild option offers a better value solution to replacement. Our work defect rate is lower than 0.6% on all rebuilds, so you can be assured of our very high standard of work.
