Default Hard Steering when hard brake

Hi Guys,

I have q7 tdi audi 2009 and recently just topped up my steering wheel fluid... then when i drive and pushed on brake then sudden turn left , i notice a hard steering like almost no power steering at all.

then i try again and it turns out everytime i brake from 50 to 20 i tried to wiggle the steering and it turns hard then the power steering is back on when in about 5seconds.

I know thaat with the adaptvie steering wheel the abs could stiffen your steering wheel but it doesnt mean that we lost our power steering , does it?

Could air in the power steering fluid cause this? because last time we only add the fluid without flushing.

any other suggestion?

FYI the power sttering is back on in about 5 seconds everytime. it just feels like the abs is taking away the whole power steering and late in turning it back on after the abs is off
