9N Polo Steering Pump


Recommended Posts

Hi, I've got the amber steering warning light and intermittent power steering so I opted to change the pump but could only get an a2 pump. Having fitted this pump the power steering appears to be working OK but the warning light is still lit. Could it be that the ECU detects that the pump was originally on an Audi and flag it as an error / fault? Thanks in advance for any help.

There was two different makes of power steering KOYO & TRW fitted and not interchangable, the KOYO pump became obsolete you had to fit an an adapter kit to run with a TRW pump unit.

 

Have you had the fault codes read ? as this might give a clue as to what's going on and should then be able to erase any codes and that will erase the warning light

Hi Nige, Thanks for the response. Its a TRW pump. I had the codes read at a garage and they said "its the pump". So I bought and fitted the Audi A2 pump (there were no Polo pumps at my local scrapper). The pump is working OK but the amber light is still on. I thought 'amber light' faults would  reset after the ignition is switched off and only reappear if the fault was still present when the ignition is turned on again which is why I asked if the pumps are interchangeable between Audi & VW or would fitting the Audi one flag as an amber light fault. The other possible cause which I'm exploring is that it might be the Angle sensor causing the light. any thoughts gratefully received ;-)

Have you had it scanned for codes since fitting the pump ? as there is no "Coding" of the pump unit required according the dealer manuals.

 

Some fault codes are overwritten after so many power cycles, so you might find the warning light magically goes out in a few days, but the steering angle sensors are a common problem across the VAG range, but get it rescanned preferably with VCDS and see what that's showing and take the fault finding from there.
