  1. Evening all, I have recently purchased a 2005 VW polo 1.4 Litre, the power steering does not work, the dashboard light is permanently lit, I have the following information after having the codes read, Address 09: Cent. Elect. Labels:. 6Qx-937-049-C.lbl Part No: 6Q1 937 049 D Component: 00BK BN-SG. 1S34 Coding: 25742 Shop #: WSC 00788 VCID: 3C76BCD92CDE42AAC1-5140 1 Fault Found: 01309 - Power Steering Control Module (J500) 49-00 - No Communications So what does this mean, where is the Power Steering control module located ???

  2. purchased some new hoses from PSS for the polo 6n the power steering hose end that goes into the power steering pump has an o-ring on it. i installed this end and it screws down half way then get's tight. the o-ring doesn't touch the base therefore there is no seal. the threads are fine and the power steering pump is brand new. any suggestions? seen on some forums people say don't use teflon tape on hydraulic systems
  3. Hello, How can I perform a test to the steering box. It doesn't have leaks but I suspect the valves are clugged somehow as it requires a greater effort than normal to turn and to stay turned in roundabouts which sugests a lack of pressure. The resistence to turn is present at any speed and when stopped. The pump is new OEM and the and before had the same behaviour. It's a TRW electro-hidraulic system. thanks dm222
  4. Hi there, This is my first post on the forms. I am having a problem with my power steering on my polo 9n3 2008, 1.4 TDI. I got into my car tonight and the light was on my dash. I had no powering steering what so ever. I got a friend to plug in a diagnosis machine and the the machine said electrical fault (can't remember the actual wording of the fault code) Has anyone had this problem or having any input to help me solve the problem
  5. I recently replaced my power steering pump because it stopped working (the warning light came on) but it turned out not to be the problem, instead it was fuse no. 7 that cause the problem. That fuse is not the main fuse for the power steering. Now this fuse blows every time it install a new one but I don't know the reason. Does anybody have the answer for me?
  6. Hi There, and first I'd like to thank your forum (and others) for helping myself and my dad fit both parking sensors and cruise control to my polo and diagnose all manner of faults/tweaks on it. The fault on my polo is intermittent, and almost always follows a day of heavy rain, basically the steering light illuminates (wile driving or manuvering) and the power steering becomes heavy. Once this is triggered the next time the car starts the power steering may not start at all, and by switching it on and off a few times it'll eventually engage (with or without light and heavy steering). Our local VW garage identified it (with my persistence it was water ingress) that the connections of the pump and loom have water ingress and have had corrosion. Price to replace both the pump and the loom at about £1140 fitted! £1140 is a fair bit more than I'd like to spend, and I believe between my dad and I we have the skills to fix this ourselves, or at the least buy the parts for a local garage to fit for a lot less! The technical bits: I have a VCDS system and the fault is diagnosed (and agreed by the VW garage) as a short to ground, although currently its reset I believe it was on the reference voltage, when it reappears I'll post the exact fault. The controller is identified as: 6R0423156A Questions: 1.If I was to buy a replacement, can it be of a slightly different part number ie.6Q0423156? If so is this a direct drop in replacement or does it need some complex calibration? Suggested replacement parts: New: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TRW-POWER-STEERING-PUMP-6R0423156-6Q0423156-VW-POLO-LUPO-IBIZA-SKODA-FABIA-NEW-/200973776369?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item2ecaf875f1 Different Part no:http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VW-POLO-1-2-ELECTRIC-POWER-STEERING-PUMP-6Q0423156M-6Q1423051AD-6Q2423051R-/251360198249?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item3a863c3e69 2. The garage was adamant that both the loom and the pump needed replacing, I can't personally see why the loom should fail (its just wires isnt it?) and might just need some tape to check its all sealed against water, to be honest the pump itself might still be ok and just need better water protection, what do you think? 3. Are there any service manuals/forum guides on the best way to access and replace the pump? Sorry for the long post and I hope its all in the right place, thanks in advance for the help.
