I had this same problem. I kept getting the check steering assist message on the dash of my 2001 licoln continental, and two weeks later my entire tire blew off. The power steering control connector was bad, and when it couldnt go any farther the hoses snapped an the preesure blew the tire off as I was driving. To fix all the damage cost 900 dollars. Maybe you can avoid this by taking it to a shop now. I waited and it could have cost me my life.

Is the fluid full enough? there should be a dipstick to tell where the level should be. Also is the belt tight enough? Wires loose?

I changed engines in my 98 continental and now the power steering doesn't work. It isn't leaking and the hose isn't pinched. I checked the belts and I still can't figure it out. It was working just fine...


You may have air in the system. Start the car and move the steering wheel back and forth and keep checking the P/S fluid level while the car is running. Keep adding fluid when it's low. Keep turning the steering wheel back and forth and sooner or later the P/S system will start working again.

Most likely a motor mount causing the "thunk". This will only get worse until its taken care of. The rubber bushing around the mount itself wears with age. Really couldn't tell you about the check steering assist apart from checking the power steering fluid level. Good luck on your problem.
