Power steering doesnt turn, is it my power steering switch???

Hi Chris, the concept of power steering in cars and trucks should read POWER ASSISTED, this means if your power steering fails, you can still steer the vehicle unlike some machinery and tractors that have full power steering which the steering wheel will just spin when the engine is turned off with no connection to your wheels, If your steering wheel does not turn it is a mechanical problem, steering arm jammed pitman arm in the wrong position or something like that. remove the pitman arm off the steering box and see if it will turn. you did mean that it won't turn at all and not turn easily like power steering should

Heater on my 01 tahoe gets stuck on

check your HVAC fuses underneath the steering wheel and or hood. if not the problem, remove the bezel piece as directed and unclip the attachment (see if the knobs are aligned (on track) with one another. its very easy over time for them to slip. its like a zipper. sometimes zippers get kinks as well as the knob. hope this helps

My stering wheel is locked

Sometimes you can't turn the key to unlock the steering wheel. This is caused sometimes by the steering being in acertain position that places pressure on the mechanism and it locks up. Try turning the steering wheel in the direction that it is already turned toward if this is the case. If not try moving the wheel in the direction it seems has more play while trying to turn the ignition switch.

It will turn on the accessories but won't turn to

Check the ignition switch on top of the steering column,to see if it is locking up before it goes into start position.You will have to lower the column down to access the ignition switch,it has a rod going to it from the key cylinder,if it is not locking up,then replace the key cylinder.You will have to remove the ignition switch to check it,two screws.

2002 tahoe enginge will turn over, however, the wheel will not turn

most likely the power steering pump shaft has broken. its hard to detect this becuase the pully on the power steering pump still turns with the serpentine belt.

I have a minor broken seal on my rack and pinion

There is but it's not going to help, the rack and pinion steering has large amount of pressure on it when you turn the steering wheel. If the seal is bad, sooner not later. The seal will fail and you lose all the power steering fluid and the power steering which can in turn also damage the rack and pinion. The safest and cheapest thing to do is get it repaired before it get's worst and you end up replacing the rack and pinion too. Good luck and keep me posted. be glad to help

When I accelerate I lose power and the truck turns off

your vehicle is supposed to charge at a rate of 14.4 volts. your volts should never be below 13 while running otherwise alternator is probably bad. If the fuel filter has never been changed it too can cause vehicle struggle to accelerate go dead easily because it is struggling to get gas. I had a 99 tahoe that wouldnt shift out of first when fully accelerating until I let off gas. thought at first trans problems but an eight dollar filter fixed it. just remember that your volts should never go below 12 volts when off, especially when running because it takes 12 v to keep engine computer and all electrical on.

Key ignition

Steering wheel lock.
Turn the steering away from lock position, hold the steering wheel then turn the key .

No, it will not turn an inch, but slightly to relief the pressure off the key ignition housing, or wiggling it while turning the key.
