Most cars with these fitted have a failsafe built in that prevents the pmp from working if the alternator output is below 14ish volts. Those pumps draw between 20 & 30amps and will flatten the battery very quickly.

Don't you guys get cars with electric steering columns over there?

Do you get these?



Most newish small cars here have electric columns- no hydraulics involved at all. I've been thinking it may be a future modification for the 142
