Power steering failed L405

Just wondering if this is common?

Stopped at the traffic lights and the stop start engaged, when the lights changed to green I pulled away and had no power steering!!! managed to pull around the corner and stoped, I turned the car off and restarted, when restarted it was fine??

This happened last week and it has not happened since however I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this???

I am not a mechanic, but the first thing to check would be the fluid in the reservoir, check for any obvious fluid leaks, then book it in for a check over. My money would be on a small PS fluid leak. I have an old SL55 AMG which has a very slow leak somewhere in the suspension system which eventually causes the system to throw an error. Takes about 3 years for this to happen after a top up of fluid - maybe your PS fluid is doing the same?

Does it have electric steering?

I believe that it is electric but it may also have a oil reservoir?

Forgot to mention that I have fitted a Ghost immobiliser recently which connects into the Canbus, I wonder if this may have caused it?

btw it has not re-occured since. 2015 Range Rover VSE 4.4 SDV8. 1998 BMW 840 Sport, 2008 Aston Martin DB9

Sounds more like the vairiable pressure side of ut is playing up... i would be suprised if its the power steering system. It's possible there is a faulty solenoid valve that controls the pressure. When your under 18mph it's on full power I.e. easy to steer and park, as speed increases the pressure backs off to provide the driver a more positive feel on the road. My money is on some kind of sensor that controls it. I would get it plugged in and pull off a diagnostic fault code Thumbs Up
