    I changed the steering rack on the car and topped it up with fluid the way it should be but the warning is still on the dash.
    As soon as i turn the key warning comes up, before the engine is on.
    Does it have to be cleared with Star or is there any sensor where it measures the pressure of the fluid and it might not be enough?:confused:

    Did you fill it correctly by putting in a bit at a time and turning the steering each time
