Fiat Panda 2004 Active - Steering goes light - Joe Bovenzi

Hi,

Upon start up steering is light ( as if in City mode) and at same time speedo not working.

After a couple of miles - all ok.

Any ideas please.

Thanks

The power steering on these is fully electric and the system needs to see a road speed signal to operate correctly.The fact that the speedo does not work also,could be a problem with the speed sensor in the gearbox.The speed signal may possibly come from the abs system (if fitted)
