You may have a bad sensor on the steering shaft. Scanning the Body Control Module (BCM) should tell that the sensor is bad.. Replace worn or shorted sensors or components.The lights will turn on if an electronic oproblem is detected but the ECM

Steering jerking to side.


Seems to me that you have a hub bearing and/or cv axle gone bad. Did the ABS light come on?

Knocks when you turn, steering column jerks


Hi there - S Wilkins here.
Could be a front hub bearing or axle CV joint.
You may be able to raise the front wheels and move them around and find what is loose.

Power steering is making a whining noise and jerking but has plenty of fluid


First make sure it is actually the pump and not the drive belt to the pump. If that checks out ok, then remove the P/S fill cap and turn the steering wheel fully left and fully right 10 times. This will remove any trapped air from the system. If that does no good then purchase a can of Seafoam Trans-Tune and add 2 ounces to the reservoir. If that still does not solve your whining & jerking problem after about 25 miles of driving, then the pump will have to be replaced.

When I turn the steering wheel the low trac light


The steering wheel position, wheel speed sensors, and ABS systems are all used to provide traction control. You likely have a failure of one or more systems. Scan the ABS system and it will provide codes to help the diagnosis. Wheel speed sensors fail often, and it is likely one or more of these is contributing to the problem.

Steering


sound like your powersteering pump or steering rack and pinion
could be bad.i would say it is your rack and pinion because if your pump was bad your steering would be real hard to turn instead of being jerky.jerking is usally the sign of a bad rack
