    I mean it won't steer it's seems like there are gears grinding or something you have to turn in off a couple of times and try it till it works.

2006 Chevy Equinox. Vehicle has lost power steering communication is what a service shop is telling me. Any ideas on this?

I have a 2008 model Equinox and my SUV has electrically assisted power steering. I had to have my truck jump started once and the garage guy hooked up the cables across the fuse that controls this steering unit. In my case this took out the 80 AMP
fuse in the motor compartment area. I had only manual hard
steering until I replaced this fuse. If you still have the SUV
with this problem, it could be just a fuse. Good luck.

I bought a 2005 Equinox in April 2006 with only 23100 kms (14438 miles). In May 2008 at 43270 km, I had to replace the left front wheel bearing (BR930326) and associated link-kit; I paid $394.22. In April...

No, this is not normal. I would suspect the bearing is not being installed correctly. Is the same mechanic installing the bearing each time? Check the manufacturers installation specifications and torque requirements.
If the installation is being done correctly, you will have to start checking suspension components, in particular the steering knuckle the bearing is attached to. The bearing assembly must be installed and seated flat and flush in the knuckle assembly. The axle nut must be torqued to specification with no weight on the bearing.
Good luck.

Suddenly all this clear oily substance is on my garage floor and the steering on my 2008 equinox is no longer "power" steering, I know it's electrical, but that fluid was doing something and I don;t know...

It could be a simple rubber hose that is worn. Take a flashlight or any portable light and check your power steering oil lines. Be more careful at the side of the leak.

2005 equinox the intermittant power steering issue

The power steering is on this vehicle is electronically assisted. Meaning it does not have a power steering pump. The electric motor could be going out, pulling too much current at times, and tripping the breaker. The best thing to do is take it to the dealer, and have them inspect it.

2006 Chevy Equinox - Service Lamp Reset

Turn the ignition to run. Within three seconds push the gas pedal to the floor three times. Turn the key to off, and then start the car. The light should flash three times signifying that it reset. If it does not, try repeating the process, but instead of turning it to off after stepping on the pedal, just start the car.
