inherited Mini with issues
Im new to the forum and recently inherited a 2002 Mini one with some issues which are as follows
Red Battery Light , no power steering
after using the powers of the internet found that the mini power steering is a common problem but could also be caused by electrical issues with the Battery or Alternator . However the car has had both of these replaced within the last month , I know that even new parts can be DOA so Decided to buy a c110 Scan tool to see if this was the case before replacing the pump. I get a code back from the scanner which I have researched but to be honest there is nothing out there that I can find to explain the code which is as follows
1627 Alternator load sensor-input high
not sure if its a red herring from the code reader which is misinterpreting the fault ?
anyway voltage all looks good at 14v while running so any ideas or suggestions for my issue would be greatly appreciated .
