Australian Car Repair Issues? Ask an Auto Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. This is a 2007 Corolla with a power steering red light illuminated at the instrument cluster, and you have no power assist, is this correct?
If you have an electric steering system failure light illuminated at the dash, you have an internal issue with the electric power steering. If the relay was faulty, the light would not be on, so that is not the issue. On this particular system, there are no user serviceable parts. You need a can tool to diagnose what the fault codes are before any can effect replacement of the necessary parts. Unfortunately, on this electric power steering system (no power steering pump) , there are procedures that absolutely require the Toyota scan tool. You recourse to getting this rectified is a visit to the dealer. I wish I could give you a quick fix on this, but, without the fault codes, we are stuck until you have codes.
