Ford KA Electric Power Steering Column Problems
The Ford KA Electric Power Steering column is known to commonly fail on all models built after 2009. The electric power steering column replaces the conventional hydraulic power steering system that was fitted to earlier models and whilst this worked great when it was working correctly, it was a very expensive part to replace and repair.
1. Heavy steering (can be in one direction but will mostly be in both directions)
2. Intermittent loss of steering.
3. Total loss of power steering.
4. Steering starts to pull to one side (Self steer).
5. Steering vibrates when turning.
6. Power steering light illuminated on the dash
If the power steering column becomes completely faulty, going to a main dealer for a replacement could cost you from £800 + VAT (plus labour + coding), which will probably only come with a 12 month warranty. You could also opt to buy a used second hand unit, but most of the time, due to the lack of information regarding the miles done on the previous vehicle or how well it was maintained, this could also lead to a complete failure at some point.
