Tell me how you check the power-assisted steering is working before starting a journey

If the steering becomes heavy, the system may not be working properly.

Before starting a journey, 2 simple checks can be made:

2. Alternatively turning the steering wheel just after moving off will give an immediate indication that the power assistance is functioning

Nissan Micra:
When the ignition is turned to the ON position on the Nissan Micra, ABS lights symbol appears for a second or two and disapears after. If it stays and does not dispear then something is wrong with ABS.

The Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) light illuminates and shortly turns off. This informs you the system is operational. If light comes on whilst driving or stays on after engine start, this indicates a malfunction in the ABS where a Nissan technician will need to check system. A fault with the ABS does not affect normal braking. ABS is used primarily to prevent wheels from locking under harsh braking
