SOURCE: loud squealing from power steering pump - do I need new PS pump?

Hi Norman,

Sounds like the adjustment may not be correct on the power steering belt, with the tension not being enough, after you replaced the belt ?

Try giving it a little more tension, and go from there.

Hope I have been of help.

Good Luck !

John.

SOURCE: need to remove steering lock from the column

If you can get someone to help, you can have them press down on the metal lock plate and you can then remove the small wire snap ring on the post.using a small pick or screwdriver. There is a too for this but I made one from a large thick flat washer with two drilled & threaded holes with 1/4 " bolts.(looks like an odd little puller) I adjust it against the plate and use the column nut to depress the unit to access the snap ring.

SOURCE: play in the steering wheel column after position adjustment

When they did the alignment it's possible that they used a tool that locks the steering wheel straight while it's on the alignment rack.If they put too much pressure on the wheel when they used the steering wheel seat lock tool it may have stressed you tilt lock mech causing it not to lock where you want it.Hope this helps

    What is code D0131 on a 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer LS?


    Don't know where you came up with this one D0131 , No such code . Now if you mean a P0131 it's for a O2 sensor
    DTC P0131 HO2S Circuit Low Voltage Sensor 1
    C0455
    Front Steering Position Sensor Circuit
    EBCM

    The electronic brake control module (EBCM) receives multiple direct inputs from the steering wheel position sensor. These circuits include, two digital square wave input signals A and B. Phase A or B should toggle high and low every 2 degrees of steering wheel rotation. . The EBCM also receives one analog steering wheel position input on the steering wheel position sensor signal 1 circuit, and is compared to the digital circuits for fault detection. The analog portion of the steering wheel position sensor is supplied a 5-volt reference and low side return circuits from the EBCM. Ignition voltage and ground circuits are supplied directly to the digital portion of the steering wheel position sensor.

    C0455


    The code description is Front Steering Position Circuit. Your traction system has detected a fault in the steering controls system. Try driving on a straight line. Did you notice a pulling on one side? You will need to check tire pressures, proper tires, and brake system conditions. Is your steering wheel off center? Your vehicle may need wheel alignment. These are the least you can fix by yourself without a scan tool. With a scan tool, the recommendation could say a faulty sensor or module, or a wiring concern. My tip for you, the most common culprit is the steering angle sensor.

    Okay, sir? goodluck and drive safely. : )

    Your truck is built with electronic power steering assist, meaning there is an electric solenoid on the power steering pump and a steering wheel position sensor on the bottom of the steering column. Have it checked for codes first.

    The position sensor causes weird problems.

    The steering gear can also bypass fluid to the wrong side of the valve. When the yank happens is the steering wheel in about the same place?

    Be careful when driving the truck until you get it fixed.
