    my 2004 Mazda RX8 is a japanese import. a few months ago, i noticed a caution light on the dash. couldn't say what it was - looks like a radiator light but not quite. then i noticed that the steering gets intermittently very heavy and hard to turn. when I turn the car on and turn the wheel, it vibrates and turns itself, this doesn't prevent me from driving, but I worry that it might get heavy unexpectly in a corner..

    any clues?

Hi, i owe a 04 mazda rx8, automatic transmition, i have problems with my power steering , idk what it could be, my power steering light is on and its imposible for me to move the steering wheel either...


How is your power steering level, have you checked that recently? if its full, then your power steering pump might be not working, or your rack and pinion has been damaged already.

I have a 2009 RX8 R3 w/20,000 miles on it. Just started it to go get gas and out of no where the power steering stopped working. Yellow steering wheel light w/! Is on. WTF? I know how to drive without...


One of two things have happened:
  1. Your power steering pump went out and needs to be replaced or,
  2. The drive belt that controls the PS pump broke
The RX8 has only two drive belts so if they are both fine and none are broken then it meant that the PS pump itself has went out and needs to be replaced.

Let me know what you think and dont forget to rate the solution.

Thank you and have a great day!

How do I fix the power steering n my mazda rx8 04?


My RX8 had the same problem. First, change your battery cable ends. On the Positive cable there is a white wire that powers the power steering. It probably has a bad connection at the battery post. I cut the end off my rx8 and just put a regular battery cable end on it and my problem was solved.

How do you add power steering fluid at a mazda rx8


Ignore earlier post - the RX-8 has an electric power assisted steering system - there are no hydraulics, and therefore no PAS fluid.

2004 mazda rx8. Power steering light came on this morning and I lost power steering.


You either lost your belt, or the oil is gone from a broken hose.

2004 Mazda RX8 Power Steering not working and light on.


I would check your power steering fluid level first. If it's full your power steering pump is bad.
