    Bad luck! I've had problems with the abs sensor before but i just took all the wheels off and gave them a good clean, i used to have to park daily in a very gravely carpark so suspect that all the dust got in there when i was driving alittle enthusiastickly :p As for the steering pipe i had to have a section of mine replace on an audi service as they said it was corroded. In terms of their being a relationship between you getting the sensor fixed and the powersteering pipe going is just bad luck mate, the abs sensors are nowhere near any steering pipe.

    Lol oh i see what you mean! Maybe your car thought the lack of steering was far more important than warning you that you could skid??
