Power steering uses car battery?

Happened to me whenever i started my car today...the power steering dont work and i had to restart my car 1-2 times....

Even when power steering resume, during the first 5 min the ' low battery' warning light came on...but thereafter it went off... and the drive became smooth (no warning light nor lost of power steering).


Is this a case of low batt? Does low batt affect power steering? Sigh, just changed the batteru last June (from Hankook).

better have it checked out by the workshop.

Power steering systems comes in either hydraulic or electric, some with a mechanical connection to the wheel so that you can still steer the car manually even if the powernsteering fails.

Power steering uses hydraulic but the car needs to power up in order for the hydraulic pump to work.

The power steering should work once ur engine is running, if nt, there might be some fault with your hydraulic fliud or pump.

Reasonable price means you have to avoid Stamford and Autobacs.

They are more expensive than smaller workshops. Battery replacement can be done at Eng Wah - Tyre shop but they are confirmed close on Sunday.

Try Soh Brothers at Ang Mo Kio, call Frankie at 64549071 to see if open today.

GP also electric steering, needs power to turn.

Go have your batt changed. Arrow tyres should be opened on sundays as well, remember print voucher from their sgcarmart ad for discount.
