Going to bump this thread because my mk7 GTI has started having the same issue where the power steering will get heavy in the middle of a drive and I have the codes for the HVAC and the ground terminal. I measured the charging voltage at 13.8V but stationary without the engine running it was 11.7V which is a bit low. Going to try replacing the battery and doing the adaptation for it and I'll update afterwards.

I should have read this entire thread before going to VW earlier this but I have the exact same problem as you Kale.. my 16 GTI PP power steering started to act up around 3-4 months ago around 83,000 km. It will come on randomly during a drive but when I shut the car off and turn it back on it will go away for awhile.

Brought it in to VW yesterday and today they managed to find battery is a fault so next week i'm booked in again for battery replacement. Hope it's just that lol
