2008 Impala , my "Servive battery system charging" came on, then I started to feel my steering wheel lock up.I let the car sit and I turn it back on and I cannot move my steering wheel idk what to do


if you have an electric power steering system, you may find that the battery voltage has fallen too low to make it work . this is from the message that service battery charge system has come on, indicating that the alternator is no longer charging--broken belt , failing battery , faulty alternator , faulty regulator or problem ECM where the regulator can be

Battery won't keep charge


sounds to me you have a faulty power steering unit, if it blown the fuse you must have electric power steering. I suspect your power steering is draining the battery. (internal short in power steering unit) If your battery won't hold or take a charge, replace it. check your alternator as well as that charges the battery.

Power steering failure v air con use


This is because the belt may be worn out or may not be tighten properly. The belt may be lose so that the AC stole all the power from the car. There is a little chance that the compressor may be in problem.If you don't have any idea about the compressor make it off.If you found familiar just adjust it to tighten the belt.
The power steering may fail due to the following reasons:

My 2007 toyota auris power steering has stopped working


alternator could be problem if battery volts are low.have alternator tested with engine idling should have 13.5 - 14.5 volts at the battery.check alternator drive belt tension.if alternator is faulty that will cause you to lose power steering because if equipped your vechicle has the electrical power steering need electric power from good strong battery and alternator.if alternator fails power steering will also fail.

My battery light came on then my power steering went out. any ideas on what the problem is or how to fix it?


When the battery dies and the engine shuts down, the power steering will stop working. I would have the battery tested first, if the battery tests ok, then the cause may be the alternator is not charging the battery causing the vehicle to run on what charge is left in the battery till it dies. I would have both of those checked out by your local Auto Zone, or local Auto parts store, usually they will do this free of charge.

Hope this helps...

Not cold out,battery light on with loss of power


Battery light ON means either battery not charging (alternator stopped working) or battery not accepting charge (dead cells in battery-need replacing).

However, your power steering ALSO works on a belt system. Check the alternator belt and the power steering belt. They may be the same one, or they may be separate.

Hope this helps.

Recharged battery on my 2006 HHR and the power steering doesn't work. I can turn my steering wheel without a fight.


Unless they have gone to electric power assist on the power steering, should be no correlation.

However, is your accessory belt for running your alternator and power steering pump ok? Is it tight enough.

While an electrical issue should not affect the power steering, a loose or missing belt could cause the (1) alternator to not properly charge the battery and (2) the power steering to not have power.

I have been getting Charging System Failure messages on my instrument panel and when this happens the steering freezes up (no power steering). I have had it into the dealer and they changed the alternator...


your idle air controller valve on the throttle body may be no good.if the idle speed drops too low,the alternator will have no output,and the steering rack which on the uplander i believe is electric like the cobalt,will not put out enough drive.if you shut off the vehicle,but leave the ignition on,and it has an electric rack,the steering should still work.if it doesnt it is hydraulic assist.if the idle speed goes to say 400 rpm,the power steering will not work .when this happens,check the tachometer what the rpm is...
