Question about 2004 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx
Went out the other day while the wife was driving. I drove it to work on Monday and it worked fine, but quit working when I left work to go home. Same thing on Tuesday. This morning, it worked 3/4 of the way to work and went out. The common factor here is when it was cold enough to have frost on the windows, the power steering worked fine, but once it warmed up (outside, not the car temp) it quit working.
I know about the bulletin on the 2004 Malibus and the Power Steering sensor. I never got a letter about this, but found out about it when this first started last week. I think I'm out of luck since the program ended two years ago AND I'm over 100,000 miles on the car.
The real question is why does the temperature affect when the Power Steering works or doesn't work?
Maybe not a call back is a call back!! have vin# ready call dealer to arange the call back repair I'm in a dealer ship I see it all the time as long as it was called back i can't say we but they will fix it!
