The power steering light has come on and the speedometer also stopped working at the same time. I have checked all fuses and they seem to be fine. What can I do?

Hi and thanks for using 2CarPros.

First, this vehicle isn't offered in the US, so my technical information is very limited. However, my first suspect would be an output speed sensor. Most times they are located on the transmission. On most vehicles, this sensor controls the speedometer. On your vehicle, if the car is moving but the computer thinks it isn't, the steering may be affected.

I wish I could offer more. I would suggest checking the output speed sensor.

Let me know if this helps.
