If that year has EPAS ( electric power assisted steering ) test your battery condition and alternator charging rate . If hydraulic , check power steering oil level , belt and pump .

Could be , but you got to check and make sure the alternator charging rate under load is o.k otherwise you could be replacing the pump / unit needlessly and with a hefty bill .Simple 2 min job with a meter . Don't know where you are located but there are plenty of steering specialist centres nowadays that are usually far cheaper than main dealers and quicker also .

Cant help you there but any I have used and all good specialists are equipped to programme their units . For example only ,

Would expect dealers to be a hefty price compared to steering centres who would usually check and verify the fault beforehand and estimate the cost .
