Renault Megane Mk2 Electric Power Steering Column Repair Service

Renault Megane PAS Electric Steering Column FaultsRenault Megane Electric Power Steering
The Electric Power Steering Column in the Renault Megane has been known to fail and is one of the most queried repairs here at Sinspeed. It is most common on the Meganes from 2002 – 2009, and although the new Electric Power Steering system replaced the hydraulic system which was found fitted to earlier models, when faulty it can be a very expensive part to replace!

Renault Megane Electric Power Steering Column IssuesCommon Signs of a Faulty Renault Megane EPS Column
If you are finding that your steering has gone heavy in either one direction or both, this is generally a sign that your electric power steering column is failing. This usually starts as an intermittent failure where the steering light momentarily appears on the dash and then goes out itself. At this point, if the problem is not rectified, it can cause the power steering to fail completely in which case the steering light will remain permanently illuminated on the dashboard and the steering goes heavy in both directions with no power assistance.

If you take your vehicle to a local garage, they can confirm the fault codes by connecting diagnostic equipment to the OBD port, which will usually bring up the following 2 common faults:

C1606 – Motor driver malfunction
C1608 – Control Unit Malfunction

In the event that either of the above fault codes have been identified, main dealers can usually quote you in excess of £800 + VAT (plus labour + coding) for a replacement unit, and this will only come with a 12 month limited warranty. The other option available would be to try and get hold of a second hand part which will more than likely be a lot cheaper, however the risk with this option would be that you would not know how long the part would last due to previous car history, and they generally will only come with a limited 30-90 day warranty.
