  1. Hi, Apologies for my lack of knowledge but I’m literally a novice when it comes to cars so any help would be great. I own a 2010 polo which I bought from a dealer 2 weeks ago - 139000 km on the clock. Drives fine for a week until last week when my partner is driving to work, it showed a solid orange power steering wheel on the dash and cut out twice in in a matter of minutes when she turned a 2 corners. Since then it’s been fine for a few days, no warning lights in the dash or any worrying symptoms. i just got in the car then and turned it round in 1st when the engine cut out and it rolled to a stop. I restarted the car with no issues, but I don’t want it to happen again so wondered what the issue could be? I’m suspecting the battery or alternator so getting these checked tomorrow, but has this happened to anyone before? thanks in advance, Dan.
  2. 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 ???

  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. Hi there So I bought a 2004 9N Polo with a P/S issue a little while ago. Steering is constantly stiff and the amber warning light is always on. Probably unrelated but the ABS light is on too (Code reader says front right sensor) The previous owner advised they had already changed the electro hydraulic pump however this hadn't fixed it. Since getting the car I bought a code reader and it showed an error for the Power Steering Module and the Steering Angle Sensor. I replaced the Steering Angle Sensor and that code hasn't returned thankfully but still the same issue with the steering. I've done a little research and it seems the Power Steering Module (2nd fault code) is in the bottom of the pump unit (if someone could confirm?) so I've ordered another in case the one the previous owner got was no good anyway. I've also tried a bleeding method that is in the Haynes manual which doesn't seem to have worked either. If this doesn't work does anyone have any advice? After this I'll be pretty stumped. Many thanks Zack
