Sounds like your power steering pump is bad. I has something do to with the valving inside the pump. The pump works when you are driving because the pump rpm is faster and the valve is open and more pressure is available.

You will need basic hand tools. First take off the serpentine belt. Unhook the high and low pressure lines, they should be toward the rear of the pump. Remove the four bolts securing it to the engine. Replace the pump and make sure to refill fluid.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Power Steering Fluid Filling & Bleeding
  1. Repair the power steering system.
  2. Turn the engine OFF.
  3. Raise the vehicle so the front wheels are off the ground.
  4. Turn the steering wheel all the way to the left.
  5. Fill the power steering fluid reservoir to the FULL/COLD level and leave the cap off.
  6. Have an assistant watch the fluid in the reservoir while you turn the steering wheel fully to the right and fully to the left at least 20 times. NOTE: On systems with long return lines or fluid coolers, turn the steering wheel from lock to lock at least 40 times.
  7. Add fluid as needed to keep the fluid level at the FULL/COLD level.
  8. Install the reservoir cap and start the engine.
  9. Center the front wheels and lower the vehicle.
  10. Run the engine for about 2 minutes.
  11. Turn the steering wheel in both directions and verify correct power steering operation.

your power steering pump has a cap on it.you have cold mark and hot mark.when car is cold engine not running.when you remove power steering cap it should be on cold mark.if not add until you get to cold mark on cap stick..dont over fill or you blow the seal.now when engine is hot been running.turn off car check.power steering cap should read full hot.mean level is correct.when you first check power steering fluid and it was real real low.you got a leaking high pressure hose.or power steering pump seal is leaking.if all check out good.your problem could be low tire pressure.worn ball joints.and tie rod ends.rack and pinion steering gear binding.

this system can be tested for codes, I would suggest you have the dealer do this test, all the parts are very expensive so guessing is not a good idea. most probale cause is a wheel motion sensor on the steering column.

1. Air could still be on your power steering system after you replaced your pump.
2. There could be another reason why your having a hard time turning your steering wheel, have your steering linkages, camber, alignment checked, so as to prevent breaking yor new pump again
thank you for choosing fixya!

Loosen 2 pivot bolts on back of pump, 13mm. then loose one bolt on bottom/front. Turn adjustment bolt on right side/bottom of pump to loosen belt. Once belt if off, remove all of the bolts connection pump to engine bracket. Remove hoses going to pump. Install new one, filled up with fluid. Now you have to bleed air out of sys. Move steering wheel left/right to the stops. Do this about 10 times either direction.
