Hi guys
Am having some problems with my 1.4 polo year 2010
My abs light keeps on everytime.. then sometime the light sign also apears
Now since 2 days, all the electricity on the dashboard keeps on and off while am driving.. but the engine itself keep working on...
And when its goes back ON again, i have no power steering. .. have to turn off the engine then back ON again to solve this
Why the dashboard keeps going on and off and the power steering goes off
Are the two problem linked??
Thanks for helping

You need to get it scanned .Your power steering is EPAS and you lose it when dash fails .Could load test alternator and battery .

Electronic power assisted steering .The rectifier is part of the alternator .Take it back to the electrician that " fixed " it and tell him of the faults since his repair ..

I just bought a litle apparatuse HH OBD car bluetooth diagnostic kit and i want to use it on my car
I downloaded Torque lite, Eobd facile, obd car doctor free but non of it can conect to the car
I plugged the kit and put the engine ON
Then get to conect on the application. . But it says "is the ignition on?"
"Is the obd kit support by tour car?"
Do you think its the kit which is not compatible or its the application been use??
