Have a look at the turn indicator mechanism as it is activated by a cam and pins under the wheel. Further down there is a ball race that supports the top end of the shaft and the balls may be dry or the cage has broken. Check that the steering wheel lock is actually free of the wheel and is not still trying to engage the lock on the shaft

SOURCE: steering wheel hard to turn; power steering fluid is full

Hi,
Intermittent hard power steering, at the begining of the turn of the steering wheel, once disturbed past the hard part, works normal.
Had fluid change, I notice a sensor, on the control block tower of the rack, is this at fault ? thanks buckleyeng.

SOURCE: fix lights in steering wheel - 04 DeVille

Steering wheel lights do not have bulbs you can change. The switch is a sealed asembly with an integral light. Each one costs around $110 at the dealership.

Heated seats have wires inside a fabric cover located betwwen the outside seat skin and the inner foam. Over time, they burn out. You can buy replacements from the dealer and have either them or an upholstery shop install them.

SOURCE: Where do I pour the power Steering Fluid?

Pull up on the engine cover. It should pop off with slight force. The power steering fluid reservoir is under it.

If you had the clockspring on wrong and turned it, it is damaged now and needs to be replaced. Remove it and put the steering wheel on and turn to confirm. You need to disassemble and inspect.

Pontiac GT steering wheel makes noise


Hi there, this sounds like a power steering pump issue. check the power steering fluid if you can. if its low, add to fill mark. if the noise is still present, its the actual pump itself.

Popping noise


Inner tie rods could make the same noise your describing. Do this......with your car in park and at idle, slightly turn you wheel from left to right, just a slight ****. 1/16 of a turn. Increase the pace from left to right, then slow down the pace. You should feel a bump in the steering wheel almost like something is tapping it. If so, have your inner and outer tie rods checked. Actually, have the steering gear checked also for leaks and wear.
