Ford Focus Electric Power Steering Problems
Are you finding that your steering is heavy in both directions on your Ford Focus? Or do you find that there is a loss in Power Steering? If so, it may be due to a fault with your Electric Power Steering Column. Hydraulic systems that were fitted to earlier models were replaced with Electric Steering Columns which work great in concept, however this is an expensive part which is a very common failure and they all end up failing at some point, therefore either requiring repair or replacement.
- Power Steering Light illuminating on the dash
- Intermittent Loss of Power
- Complete Loss of Power Steering
- Heavy Steering in Both Directions
The symptoms above are an indication of a faulty Electric Power Steering Column, and if ignored, it will go on to fail completely. This will cause the steering warning light to remain illuminated on the dash and the steering will go completely heavy with no power assistance.
If the fault is with the Electric Power Steering Column, the options are either to replace or repair. Replacing it with a brand new unit directly from Ford can cost in the region of £000.00 + VAT (Plus Labour + Coding) which is very expensive. You could also opt for a second hand part which in the first instance will seem more viable due to it being cheaper, however the risks involved with this include not knowing how long it will last due to limited knowledge of previous maintenance history, and it will generally only come with a limited 30 – 90 day warranty.
