    Power steering failure , j500 Advise needed!!!

    About a month ago my dreaded red steering wheel light came on and lost all power steering ,
    Since then I had the fault code read and it came back as j500 which I believe is the power steering module ,
    I went to gsf and got another rack but had no module on it ,but you can't buy these modules separate
    so my question is if I was to buy a 2 nd hand rack that has the module on are these interchange able or do I need one that matches my part number ?
    The number on my rack is 1k2423051AC
    any help much appreciated
