Your car has variable power steering assist control, this is controlled through a processor or computer module, the control system uses sensors and a hydraulic valve to control this, your local dealer has the proper test equip to address this problem.

I have 1990 ford f150 & when I drive it is all over road ie sways etc hard to keep it on road


There are many reasons for this problem. Check the following: Tire size and inflation, tie-rods, wheels bearings, ball-joints, center link, pit-man arm, alignment, twin-beam bushings, broken spring, sticking brake caliper, worn or loose steering box, cracked frame, worn, loose, or defective steering column components. I hope this information helps, please let me know what it was, good luck.

Vsc, engine and track off light are on the dash board, what could this indicate?


VSC is for "Variable Slip Control" and TRAC is for "Traction Control". Your car is equipped with an antilock brake control system that is also equipped with VSC and TRAC. If these lights are staying on all the time, it is an indication that there is a malfunction in the system and your car will not function properly in the event that you get into a situation where evasive maneuvers are needed and/or slippery conditions could cause you to lose control of your vehicle.

SYSTEM OUTLINE

The vehicle could be in an extreme over steering or under steering tendency due to unexpected accidents, road conditions, vehicle speed, or by other external factors. In such a case, this system automatically controls the engine output and the braking to each wheel, to decrease the extreme over steering and under steering.

  • To decrease extreme over steering tendency When the system determines that the over steering tendency is large, the system applies brakes to the outer wheels according to the degree of over steering, and creates a moment towards the outer side of the vehicle, to decrease the tendency of over steering. Also, when the brakes are applied, the vehicle speed decreases while the stability increases.
  • To decrease extreme under steering tendency When the system determines that the under steering tendency is large, the system applies brakes to the front or rear wheels according to the degree of under steering, to decrease the tendency of under steering.
  • VSC OFF SW The SW to send the VSC system into OFF mode. When the SW is pushed after starting the engine, the system will be in OFF mode, and the VSC off indicator light will turn on. When the SW is pushed again, the system will be in standby mode. When the engine is stopped and re-started, regardless of the VSC OFF SW, the system will be in standby mode.
Information to the driver
The VSC system informs the driver when the tire grip is about to exceed its grip capacity, by blinking the slip indicator light and turning on the buzzer. Accordingly, the driver is informed to drive more gently.

**************************************************************************************************************************
Diagnosis of this problem needs to begin with a scan of your VSC and Traction Control and ABS control modules to retrieve fault codes. It could be anything as simple and painless as a malfunctioning Wheel Speed Sensor, or something as expensive as a damaged Hydraulic Control Unit.

I cant find the location of power steering


I assume that you are speaking of your power steering pump. You can follow your belts and the pump will be powered by one of the belts. You will recognize the pump because it will have a cap on top of it where you can check and or add PS fluid, the correct level will be indicated by a dipstick that is integrated into the cap. Good Luck. I hope this helps.

2005 jetta no power steering hard to steer


First and foremost, (if not already done) check the powersteering resevoir to make sure it has fluid and it is full as well as having no leaks. If it's leaking you may see small dark areas where you frequently park, on the ground. If it is full, there is a chance you need a new one, a hose/line is broken or has a hole (leak). A mechanic is your best choice to find this out. If the resevoir is empty or low, (can be checked hot or cold; look for level indicators for each on dipstick); fill it up and drive for a day or two - check the fluid again (make note of any difference in steering after filling. Powersteering pump may also be belt driven, so make sure the belt is tight (no cracks, etc.) may need to replace belt.
