Power stearing rx 8 2004 You need cleaning the two gray plugs below canister air filter. One plug have 2 power cables and other plug have four or five cable. You need electric contact cleaner and cleaning both plug terminal pins Verify the contact must be very clean. The more important is the hose for drainage from the coolant bottle. This is the principal cause of throuble. This is a short hose for drainage. When the car is hot, the hose drainage vapor and drops coolant. This vapor and coolant impact the gray plug and the cable is hot. This causes shutdown of the power steering. change the hose to a longer one so it wont drop fluid on to electrical harness. For finish remove the negative battery cable for reset the electrical system. cleaning the main fuse of power stearing on positive pole of battery.
