Hi ajon 53

'ping' could describe the notification sound, do you get a dash warning light too?

Do you have ESP (Electronic Stability Program) on your C3?

I don't know what the connection between the steering wheel and the ping is and without a dashboard warning, you will need to delve into the BSI to see why you get the pings, assuming its is the notification ping you get when the car wants to attract your attention.

You need the Lexia tool to read what's going on in the BSI, but its not cheap and takes a bit of work to get going.
