in engine bay diagnostics port short out t1 and e1 that will show if you have any error codes,
But usually the solenoid sticks, turning ignition on and off a few times quickly frees it up.
Its located in the frunk on passenger side a little round solenoid thing pretty much just over where you top up the power steering fluid.

Yep as SPLA says, ignition on and off about 10-15 times should unstick it.

no real suggestions myself but have a look through this section of the BGB, maybe the troubleshooting page could have a handy tip. Keep us posted on what you find out!

If you're suffering from lag, you're either in the wrong gear or the wrong car!

Power steering and ABS share the same fuse. It is located under under the bonnet marked "abs".
