P/S light constantly on 3 Years ago Karma: 2
So from I have had the car the P/S warning light has been constantly lit up. The power steering is working fine but the car is due for MOT and I am just wondering will they fail me because this light is on and does anyone know how to fix it? All help much appreciated Thanks

Hmmm try switching out your car battery and see if that helps ?? my last mr2 had the same problem,, power steering light stayed on but it was working.. turns out my battery was to low due to the alternator being broke.. try it and see..

Ok looks like it could be an electrical issue as the amber warning light came on while driving it today. While have to do diagnostics check and see what code i get.

Common problem lads

happens to me every few months

fix is easy turn ignition off and on ACC about 20-30 times quickly (but obviously NOT turning over the engine)

The heat generated unsticks the coil in the PS relay

Edit: reread OP - if PS is working then the aaovebis probably no use
