Red this article:

Eventhough the level is right, the fluid might need replacing (every 3~5 years and 50.000-100.000 miles).

If its the electronic unit,check the main fuses near the battery,also check the wiring connectors at the powersteering pump for loose or corroded plugs.If alls ok,you will need a diagnostic machine to read out what trouble codes are in the units memory.good luck.

SOURCE: how do i bleed my power steering rack on subaru legacy rs turbo

A power steering dosent need bleeding. If you replaced it a week ago and was fine until now then it's not an air problem. Power steering fluid is pumped through the system even when the steering is not being used. Definatly not an airlock problem. Cheer's

Steering gone heavy


Sounds like the belt that drives your steering pump is the same belt that drives your alternator, eh? Are you sure you don't have a loose, slipping, or broken steering/alternator belt? I assume you have looked under the hood, and that the engine did not die.
Check the steering fluid level, as mentioned above, and inspect the belts. Steering pumps need their fluid, BUT I Can't imagine why a low steering fluid level would cause the warning lights to come on unless a belt is at fault or the engine died. Belt could still be in place, but just sliding across the crucial pulleys. So watch it run and note if all the pulleys are turning or not. I'm betting the belt broke, slipped, or an accessory pulley locked up. Namely: steering pump or alternator.

Report back if this is not the problem please. Hope this helps. Tater Todd
