So my GF gets off work late at night, and while our commute doesn't lend itself to P&G due to hills, apparently she's been taking advantage of the light traffic by FASing, shutting the car off on a longer downgrade and while coasting to the last turn in town before getting home. I was quite surprised to hear this as normally she drives like a banshee! Anyway, to the point: she mentioned that the power steering glitched when restarting the engine at one point. As far as I can gather, this is what happened, exactly: 1) Turn key off 2) Turn key back to On position 3) Coast a while 4) Bump start to accelerate after making a turn At this point, the power steering light was on, and she noticed she didn't have power steering. She shut the car off and turned it back on with the starter, and power steering was back. A few nights earlier, she had done the same thing, except turned the key back to "On" just before bump starting, and apparently this didn't happen. I can't see what difference that would make, though. This is a 2008 Mazda3s, 2.3 liter, MT of course. The power steering is a hydraulic system with an electric pump. Anyone experienced this?
