Power steering problems


Not long had my fn2 after moving away from my ep3 a few years back, and at the moment I love, so so impressed with everything.

But there is a reason why I'm posting, I have done search on this forum but can't find and answer.
I'll start with the symptoms, when cold or left for more then I'd say roughly 12hours, I'll turn the ignition on press the engine start and the power steering light will come and I have no power steering.
Every time time this has happened I've resorted to turning it back off and on again until it works.

I've read that this could be a faulty eps control unit, how true would this be?

Other question is there a walk through on how to exchange one, as a dealer quoted me 836.00

I would rather change it my self. But the part alone from a dealer is 600

Any help is appreciated

Early models suffered from this.

Best thing to do is look at a wreckers.
for a later model(not 100% sure if it is 100% compatible)

Cheers I'll keep a look out for breakers.

Only a thought but if my battery was giving off less then 12.4V would that be a reason to why the eps may not kick in
