Steering problem
2004 Vauxhall Meriva 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 66000 miles

Why does the electric power steering trip out? Is it sensors on the steering column, or is it the alternator, or the ECU, and why don't vauxhall have a clue? Don't they know how to build a decent shed?

This is a common fault on the meriva. I think due to bad sensors. It could be due to the alternator not putting out enough power. Vauxhall will eventually find and rectify the fault !
