Default 307 Power Steering not working on start up

I have a very strange fault with the Power Steering on my 307.

If I start the car I have no power steering until I have moved about 6ft after that it works perfectly.

If I was to turn the ignition off and restart the car, i would get the same issue again.

With the wheels jacked up, one revolution is not enough to have the power steering engage.

All connections including ABS loom fine, fluid is fine, just this annoying fault.

Any ideas ?

Check the oil level in servo pump, check the high pressure hose connection on servo pump. Run the car in spot for 20-30 min and rotate wheel from time to time, do you get any leaking beneath the car?

You could try draining the p/s fluid out then topping it back up and bleeding ?

Got a mechanic coming Thursday to Drain Flush and refill and bleed

Is there anything else that might cause it.

It just seems like a switch is turned on after you move about 6ft and it comes on. If I trun the engine off and start again, it does the same thing.

Is this what a blockage could do, just on the start up when car is standing still?

Many Thanks

Is it belt drive or the electric one?
If it's electric, it could be your battery on it's way out

Electric, and I replaced batter about 6 months ago, but I will get it checked.

Thanks.

If battery has been done, then maybe the alternator isn't putting out enough charge.
Starting the car will drain a fair bit from the battery, and being an electric steering setup would sort of make sense it is power related.

Hav been and had the Battery and Alternator checked, both are fine, so not a power issue from that side.

Check the powersuppky leads onto the electric pump motor.
It sounds like a pump problem though.
Draining and refilling is i reckon a waste of money.
