THE FIAT PUNTO ELECTRONIC POWER STEERING (EPS) IS PRONE TO INTERMITTANT OR COMPLETE FAILURE, BELOW IS A LIST OF COMMON FAULTS :

                                                         COMMON FAULTS

1. THE MOTOR BECOMES INTERMITTANT THEN IN A SHORT TIME FAILS COMPLETLEY.

2. THE COMPONENTS INSIDE THE ECU BECOME FAULTY THEN AGAIN COMPLETLEY SHUT DOWN.

3. THE TORQUE SENSOR INTERNALLY OF THE COLUMN BECOMES FAULTY, CAUSING THE STEERING TO BECOME HEAVY ON ONE SIDE OR BOTH LEFT AND RIGHT PULLING THE STEERING EITHER WAY.

4.WITHIN THE U.K MOST PUNTO VEHICLE HAVE A CODE NUMBER ON THE ECU (ALUMINIUM ) BOX WHICH IS ATTACHED TO THE COLUMN ABOVE THE MOTOR, WHEN ORDERING YOU WILL NEED TO GIVE THE CODE NUMBER WHICH IS LOCATED ON THE TOP OF THE BOX ON A WHITE LABLE, IT WILL BE THE BIGGEST DIGITS READING THE MOST COMMON IS 6670 , BUT SOMETIMES IT CAN READ 1077 OR 9238 THIS NUMBER IS VISABLE WITHOUT TAKING THE WHOLE COLUMN OFF.

Simply remove the plastic cowling cover where the fuse box is located and use a torch and even a mirror.

SOME OF OUR CUSTOMERS HAVE TRIED CHANGING THE MOTOR, BUT WE ADVISE TO CHANGE THE WHOLE COLUMN, BECAUSE WITH OUR EXPERIENCE WE HAVE FOUND IT ONLY CURES THE PROBLEM FOR A SHORT WHILE, WHEN THE MOTOR FAILS ITS NOT ALL THAT LONG AFTER THE TORQUE SENSOR FOLLOWS. BUT THIS IS ONLY A RECOMMENDATION/ ADVISE . YOU CAN FIND MORE VIDEO IMAGE ON YOUTUBE OF THE ACTUAL IMAGE, THIS MAY ASSIST YOU MORE AGAIN ONLY ADVISE ! JUST PUT IN THE SEARCH BAR PUNTO STEERING COLUMN.

REGARDING GRANDE PUNTO STEERING COLUMNS, IT IS THE EXACT SAME PROCESS BUT THE NUMBER MOST COMMON IS 55701323 THIS IS THE NUMBER ON A WHITE LABLE AGAIN AND YOU WILL NEED TO FORWARD IT WHEN ORDERING. THE OTHER NUMBER IS 26117861.
