What does a steering wheel warning light on a 2002 vectra mean?

1. Low steering fluid level. 2. Incorrect software version in steering ECU. 3. Failed steering ECU. Some Early Vectras (of the Vectra "C" model) had a fluid level switch in the fluid bottle. This switch is well known for giving false "low fluid" warning messages, and was deleted from later cars. There is a software update available from Vauxhall dealers, that deletes the "low fluid level" function. If the software update does not fix the problem, and the fluid level is correct, a new steering pump/ECU/fluid reservoir assembly will be needed. (or just ignore the massage)

How do you check the power steering fluid in a '91 Chevy caprice classic?

To check the power steering fluid on your 1991 Caprice remove the cap on the power steering pump fluid reservoir and check the level on the fluid level indicator. If the fluid is warm(about 170 degrees)the fluid level should be at the "Full Hot" mark. If the fluid is cool(about 70 degrees) the fluid level should be at the "Full Cold" mark.Always use the correct power steering fluid to avoid damage to the hoses and seals which will result in fluid leaks. It should be noted that the reservoir (pardon my spelling) is located under the alternator (On my '91 with the 305, that is) - So you can't do it while the car is running.....Kenny
