Have you change steering wheel or have you done something else under dash? There might be just ground wire failure. Of course it can also be broken.

Do you have a power-steering fluid leak?
I honestly don't know for sure (someone help me out), but will the HICAS light come on if the P/S fluid is low?

I think the 33 has an electrical HICAS system and doesn't use the PAS fluid.

Also doubt that a missing HICAS bulb would fail the MOT (like ABS would). Hopefully a MOT tester can clarify. Though there's a problem somewhere that needs fixing..

Did the light just go out or did it flicker for a few days then go out?
My money is on low power steering fluid in the front resovoir also check the fluid in the boot (right hand side behind cover)

Just like to add my suggestion was a quick hack to get through an MOT; there's obviously an issue which needs addressing after that.
