I had the same problem you need to replace the power steering motor, you can buy them for under 100 dollars on Ebay or at a salvage yard. Not very hard to do either.

SOURCE: lose power while driving

Hi. I had the same problem on my 2004 Dodge Ram 3500 Cummins. I went to the dealer and they did a bunch of diagnostics and they replaced my fuel pump. At the same time they put in a retrofit kit that moved the fuel pump to the inside of the gas tank. I have not had the problem since. The cost was about $1,200, but my 100,000 mile drivetrain warranty covered it and I had to pay the $100 deductible.

When I drive my steering goes a bit stiff what could be the problem


You are possibly low on power steering fluid. Check the reservoir and top it up as needed. You will need to do this again after a short while, as air works its way out of the pipes.
Then you should think about why it got low to start with. It is possible the power steering gear has sprung a leak somewhere. A common place for that is the steering rack end seals.

My 2006 Pontiac G6 all of a sudden cut off on me while driving. The message said "Service Power Steering" and "Service Air Bag". I towed it to a Pontiac Dealer and because it started, they sent it back...


There are to many things that can cause this issue. At my best guess, I'll say an issue with the ignition switch or harness. The wire harness from the ignition switch could have a break from it or has been rubbing against a metal part causing a short and shutting down your engine.

This is the best i can think of since you have mentioned that your air bag and and power steering service light came on. I'l have them inspect the wire harness more closely to the ignition switch and replace if any sighs of worn area.

Thank you for using fixya and good luck

2006 Chevy Cobalt. My power steering goes out.


It sounds like the power steering motor is overheating pre maturely. Changing the motor should take care of the problem. What really happens is the motor reports to the power steering module that it is over heating and the module is shutting power to the motor down, the motor is actually no overheating.

Citroen saxo furio pwer steering fault. Started intermittently. now not working at all. initially not working when starting engine , then kick in with a **** whilst driving. then after parking and stopping...


Hi
is it leaking from anywhere, quite common o saxo's they leak from the steering rack, they have a small circular seal that go's and drips fluid out of the bottom.

It is also quite common on saxo's for the power steering pump to fail, it's the same on the peugeots, this is most likely the cause so get that checked first, you can get one off ebay for about £30 and they are fairly easy to fit.

Hope this helps
Regards
Dan

About once a week my 2004 Isuzu Rodeo will totally cut off in the middle of driving and the power steering goes out and the brake, check engine, air bag, and oil lights come on. I will turn the car off and...


i suggest you get the code out of the vehicles diagnostic system it could shed some light on why vehicle cuts out.
does vehicle start straight away?
things like a relay, crank sensor, wiring loom or connector problem or more expensive things like engine ECU could be at fault.
i have seen all these but the most common for V6 engines is the engine harness wiring loom breaking and bad earth crimp on LH head to guard area.

Power steering goes out while driving


There are sensors in the steering column. they are going bad and the whole steering column will need replaced more than likely. waiting for a recall from gm but this is a big safety issue that needs immediate attention. gm will reimburse you if you already have payed to have it fixed and they issue a recall.

Power steering goes out


YOU HAVE AN ELECTRIC POWER STEERING SYSTEM. YOUR POWER STEERING CONTROL MODULE IS THE MOST LIKELY CAUSE. SCAN THE SYSTEM FOR CODES AND GO FROM THERE.
