Morning -

We had previously lost power steering to our 2004 vectra.

At that point we tested the battery and found that to be faulty along with the blown fuse.

We hadn't successfully diagnosed why the fuse had blown.

However, with both new battery and fuse fitted, the car operated correctly over the weekend until yesterday evening. when the fuse blew.

Could the power steering pump be the route cause?
TIA

Could be some damaged wire shorting out against the bodywork.

Don't suppose that's easy to diagnose :(
Unless it’s obvious.
You would need to check the wiring that’s associated with running the power steering.

So we changed the fuse again and it seemed to work, for most of yesterday and various short journeys, then failed again last night. Interestingly every time the fuse has popped it has been when the vehicle is turning right.

We don't know whether to change the pump which is fairly pricey or focus on a possible wiring fault
