Lost power steering on 2001 Monte Carlo SS

I got stuck in edge of ditch while making a u turn. When I cut my wheels all the way to the left and had someone help push me out (after several minute of spinning tires on the edge of the road shoulder drop off) I finally was able to rock back and forth and get over the edge of shoulder, but my power steering was gone. The fluid is full and the belt is intact. Why would I lose my power steering?

I don't know how much this will help but some common problems with loosing power steering is that your power steering pump is gone.your pump is about a foot below the alternator on the side of the firewall - hard to get to it under the hood without removing some items, I got some prices for you and a new pump couls cost anyware from $18 to $70. also the belt could have loosened up just enough that your power steering wont work. hope this helped.

Trying to locate turn signal relay flasher on a 2000 chevy monte carlo ss


The Monte uses a single flasher unit that integrates turn signal and flasher functions. It is mounted in a junction block that is attached to the firewall just to the left of the steering column under the instrument panel. To get at it you have to remove the the sound insulation panel that is attached to the lower steering cover and then the lower steering cover as well.
