What was the pump and service like from ECU Testing? I'm looking to get my pump rebuilt and am searching the archives for recommendations.Thanks for advice. My husband has just taken off the offending steering pump and it is being sent off to ECU testing for a re-build. Hopefully all will then be okay.
HelloI'm afraid you will need a new pump, this is a very common sympton of failure and is nothing to do with a 'solonoid.' Do not allow the pump to run continuously and flatten your battery or the pump will overheat and damage your steering rack seals.........disconnect the battery except to drive to a garage.
