Re: Power steering problem.
Believe it or not this can quite often just be the tyres. Assuming that you have checked that both tyres are infact the same size, jack the front of the car up and swap the wheels from side to side. It would be worth checking for any wear in the track rod ends at this point by grabbing hold of the front wheel while jacked up with your hands in the quarter to three position and alternately push and pull the wheel. You should feel very little if no free play. change the wheels and road test. Does it pull the oposite way, is it better ? then get back to me Cheers John

On a steering wheel are 2 pins. These pins turn the signals off as the wheel returns from making a left or right hand turn. They reset the blinker mechanism by bumping the blinker arm and pushing the arm back to the center position. You can sometimes see these little pins that reset the blinker if you look between the steering wheel and the steering wheel column. There is a little gap where the steering wheel is enabled to turn with out rubbing the column. You will also see a circular copper plate in there where the horn makes electrical contact by a little flat tension arm and rubs the copper surface as the wheel spins in either direction.
To repair a damage blinker pin, the steering wheel most likely has to be pulled off and the pin repaired and steering wheel returned back onto the column. Not a big job at all, just more of a pain then anything. Some steering wheels are on pretty tight on their splines and a puller may be needed. If the pins are still intact in the back of the steering wheel, then the blinker mechanism has a problem and is not be triggered to return to center by the pins.
power steering only works when motor is running. If car is running and you are having this problem it could be as simple as low power steering fluid...have it check...good luck and hope this helps some.
check the fuses at the front passenger foot well, the middle one on the top that's halfway pulled is for the solenoid that releases the key. its also for the rear right turn signal so you should check the wiring there too.
