If the above-mentioned problem is detected, a possible cause may be a faulty control unit of the power steering system.
In order to exclude other possible causes of malfunction, electrical and mechanical system tests (in accordance with vehicle manufacturer specifications) and also a fault code query using a suitable diagnostic unit should be carried out.
The following error codes can be set.
-C05D6 Power steering control unit, processor error

If there are no further errors diagnosed, the control unit must be replaced.
