You will have to have the system controller tested, the light indicates a fault code is present, take it in before it fails all together.

Whenever i turn my wheels to the left or right i hear a squeeking noise as well as a popping sound coming from the front end area,whether im in motion or not?what could be the problem?


check your power steering fluid -- if that is low, your pump will make funny noises like that. If it is not that, have the pump itself checked out. If not that ... it might be something more major than that (but most steering parts won't squeak and pop unless they are VERY damaged ... if you are still able to turn the car reliably, it's probably the fluid or the pump.

MY 2001 Elantra was making a horrible screeching noise whenever i turned the car on and whenever i turned the steering wheel. i thought it was the power steering pump so i replaced the pump but i didnt...


Hi, it sounds more like you have a improperly tensioned drive belt. If you didn't get all the trapped air out of the power steering system this maybe the cause of your stiffer steering problem now. Try loosening the P/S belt all the way and starting the car if you still hear the noise you know its in one of the other drive belts. good luck

Popping sound while turning a 2006 F-350


It could be a ball joint. Since it has a lift I would recommend checking to make sure everything is tight, it is easy for something to loosen up.

Whenever i turn the steering on my 04 Impala, car makes a loud, grinding noise. Took car to shop, and they want $1200 to replace power steering. Is this for real?


I don't know about the price quoted, but it definitely sounds like a faulty power steering unit that needs to be replaced.
I expect there is no cheap fix option available.

Popping sound from Chrysler Pacifica


it is called a clockspring.
the other thing to check is that the rear part of the steering wheel is clearing the column shroud properly.
call a few places in your area and how much it is to change the clockspring.

There is a switch on your power steering, that is called a power steering angle switch, that is probably shorted out.

The malibu has electronic power steering, it has a electric motor that provides assistance when turning-it uses no power steering fluid.
