Question about 2006 Chevrolet Malibu

1 Answer

My 2006 Malibu steering wheel is going bad.

My Chevy Malibu 06 power steering light comes on every time I try to turn left and the steering wheel stiffens and hard to turn so, I have to turn off the car and then turn it back on in order for the steering wheel to loosen up. All I know is that an 06 Chevy Malibu has no reservoir for me to add steering wheel fluid so I don't know if thats the problem or I may have to replace the parts that I know will cast me more than the down payment I put on this car. It's not fair if that happens especially when I'm still paying on it.

The power steering is electric on that car. It has a electric motor on the column, and a control module. There are several causes that could be the problem. You need to have it scanned to get a better idea of what to do. If you can give me the codes you get then I will be glad to advise you on what's best. Good Luck

2006 Chevy Malibu - the power steering comment came on the screen and it isn't handling right. Where is the power steering reservoir to fill it?


Your 06 Malibu has electric assist power steering. There is no reservoir, or pump for that matter. A previous problem of this sort was on the website a couple of weeks ago, and someone had mentioned that there was a recall for this problem. Call your Chevrolet dealer and inquire.

No power steering on 2006 chevy malibu, car got hit on left fr. quater panel thats when the p/s went out wat could it be


Check the belts and fluid? LMAO this is electronic power steering, there is no belt or fluid. This is an electrical problem. GM bulletin says the ignition coil is backfeeding and causing an electrical glich in the steering motor. You have to remember all these electronics are tied together through the computer system. Also these cars have teribble noises in the steerning.
