  • Steering stiff on start up?

    Recently on startup my steering is really stiff and stiffens up when doing maneuvering. Any reason why?

    low battery voltage is the answer

        Because the steering is electronic.. off the battery.

        Low battery - hard steering.

                        Wonder if it has anything to do with it being so cold in ze morning

                            In fact after reading this I've noticed my steering is heavy all the time and pulls to the left a bit
                            My tyres are pumped up so its not that. Any ideas????

                              See if it pulls on a flat carpark
