Vauxhall Corsa D Electric Power Steering fault

Vauxhall Corsa D Electric Power Steering fault

This Vauxhall Corsa D electric power steering column is a very common problem for vehicles built between 2006 and 2014, failure will cause complete or intermittent loss of all power steering and illumination of the EPS (Electric Power Steering) light. Sometimes failure may result in the steering wheel jumping/vibrating in both directions. Fault codes will be stored for the power steering torque sensor and/or steering position sensor, these codes will be stored within the electric power steering system which can be accessed using professional level diagnostic equipment.


A brand new Corsa D steering column is very expensive when purchased directly from the manufacturer, will require programming to the vehicle and is supplied with only a 1-year warranty. This is often not a viable nor cost-effective solution for most Corsa D owners.


Thankfully there is a more cost effective solution - we are able to supply remanufactured Corsa D electric power steering columns from stock (when available) or rebuild your own electric power steering column for a small fraction of the price of new, this is a fully re-engineered solution with all common failing components upgraded to higher rated than standard versions. Our test and rebuild service will save you a small fortune and we provide an unlimited mile Lifetime Warranty* with every rebuilt unit. Current turnaround time is approximately 2-3 working days (excluding weekends and public holidays) to have your own Corsa D Electric Power Steering column rebuilt.

Hi I have a 2013 1.3sxi diesel Corsa. When the temperature drops the power steering light comes on and the steering will not move. After sitting in the car for a while it warms up and the light goes off and the steering works. This happened this morning (August - temp dropped a little last night) so sat for a few minutes, during the winter months I have to sit for about 25 minutes for the light to go off. Any ideas

Hello, I have a problem with our 2008 Vauxhall Corsa 1.2. Power steering has packed up, this also happened several weeks ago, no steering and the steering light on! Then after a week or so it was ok again !! Been fine for weeks until now. Same symptoms and light on again. Removing the unit and sending it to you seems like the best option , I don't want to go with a secondhand unit , is there anything I need to do before I remove and what would be the likely cost?? thanks Richard.
