Question about 1994 Subaru SVX
ON my 1992 SVX, when I turn the wheel either way when parked on pavement or even rolling very slow, all of the lights on the dash come on. Has anyone ever heard of this happening? It is like when you turn on the key to the on position without starting it. I have watched as the pulley on the pump will actually slow down when you turn the wheel. This was my first thought as to why the lights would come on because the power steering pump and the alternater share the same belt and if it was slipping then the alternator would not turn and make the lights come on. So I tightened the belt and it still did the same thing. I see an electric device down where the steering column hooks to the steering rack and it has two wires coming out of it, does any one know what that is? Does anyone have any ideas about what the problem is? I would really appreciate it
Its your harmonic balancer pulley going bad. this pulley is made in 2 parts and a rubber seal. the rubber part goes bad and thus causing the pulley to slip. which in turn doesnt turn you pwer steering and alternator. with having no alternator working your dash lights up. not buy a new pulley from subaru. there 200.00, can go bad any time, weighs about 10lbs. get one from ebay. theres lots of seller that are selling it from 40 to 100.00, and only weigh about 1lb.
