Question about 2005 Chevrolet Malibu

Power steering check light comes on while driving

While driving my car a beep comes on and it tells me to check power steering. The manual says to have serviced by dealer immediately. Is this a switch replacement? I also have read some reviews from other consumers and they seem to be having the same issue. One person actually said that the dealer will cover the problem through a special coverage adjustment on vehicles up to 7 years or 70,000 miles. Are you aware of this?

If that light comes on a fault code is set in the control module, you need a scanner hooked up to read that fault code.

SOURCE: replace turn signal switch 1998 chevy lumina

You may look or feel the back side of the steering wheel, looking for 2 screws that hold the airbag to the wheel, these will be internal torq type screws (star) you may have to rotate the steering wheel 90 degrees to access the screws. You should first disable the airbag, by removing the airbag fuse, and or by disconnecting a yellow connector located near the base of the steering column. under the knee bolster.(panel below column). Once the retaining screws are removed, lift bag and disconnect the 2 connector to the airbag, the ground for the horn, and the horn contact wire, which requires you to push down and twist counter clockwise, damage to the horn contact ring will occur if you try and just pull connector from the ring. Now you can remove the steering wheel, may require a puller, and the you will have access to the turn signal switch.

How do I stop my car showing ABS, POWER STEERING and BREAKING SYSTEM lights and beeping.?


-First able check all the belts. If any loose. (I mean not tight or good tension).
-If all tensions are good then turn on the car, let it run for 10-15 minutes and check the voltage at the battery. If it's below 13 volts
then the problem is the alternator.

Good Luck

Esp light on 2001 aclass


Hi there lose of power steering and the eps light coming on could be the power steering pump is broken or near stuffed so will require a new pump. The other reason is that your power steering oil level is to low and needs toping up. Also check that the drive belts driving the power steering pump are tight and not slipping.

Hope this helps.

Hi I would like to know how would I go about adjusting my 1999 polo playa 1.6i clutch cause it is to high can any1 help thanks 4 your advise


'Volkswagen Polo 1.9TDi 74KW, 2006 model sedan. Instrument cluster will reset, all lights come on sometimes with a loud beep sometimes with the horn also. It started first when I turn steering wheel to max either side then the airbag light will come on and I will loose power steering, then when switch off and restart all is fine but all counters are reset on the instrument cluster. Most recent incident when I was driving on highway and slacking off to take an exit then all the lights on dash was lit, lost power steering and loud beeping and I switched off engine and restarted (while freeing at high speed) then all OK again. Seems to happen more frequently but intermittent.' - has been answered - "'I had the same problem after I had my car serviced, the problem with the power steering was that the signal to the power steering pump was set to high and the pump cut out because it was receiving an incorrect signal, the instruments reseting was found that alot of the ground wires was loose, for some reason the abs sensor was also not adjusted correctly which made the abs light come on as well. I took the car to another service centre and they adjusted the abs sensor and the signal to the pump and checked all my wirring - had no problems since - Christiaan from South Africa'"

Power steering full but heavy steering 1997


Okay, for the steering issue, you may have a bad power steering reservoir.

The fuel inction problem...more than likely a sensor problem. If you can get to an auto parts store like Schuck's/O'reilly's/Kragen/Chiefs/Napa...they will read the code for free....I mention this because you say you have the check engine light come on and the hesitation problem sounds like a MAS/MAF sensor...mass air flow sensor problem. Find out what the code is, and they will tell you for free...FREE!!!
