Power steering pressure switch is shaped somewhat like a
spark plug (a bit too fat) threaded at one end and having a cylindrical plastic
body at other end. It is on the hose connecting the power steering pump with
the rack and pinion.
The oil light is warning the driver the engine has no oil pressure. That could be due to the engine oil level being low, or because of a problem with the oil pump. is it possible you unplugged or damaged the oil pressure switch on the engine ?
TO REPLACE THE POWER STEERING PRESSURE SWITCH.REMOVE SIPHON OUT POWER STEERING FLUID BELOW THE PRESSURE SWITCH.UNSCREW THE OLD PRESSURE SWITCH AND SCREW IN THE NEW POWER STEERING PRESSURE SWITCH.MAKE PRESSURE SWITCH HAS THREAD SEALER ON IT.IF NEW PRESSURE SWITCH THREADS ALREADY HAVE SEALER ON THE THREAD DONT NEED TO USE TEFLON TAPE TO SEAL THE THREADS.BLEED POWER STEERING SYSTEM.
Hi: 1st thing to check is your Power Steering Switch,its located right on your Power Steering return Line. Just Replace that 1st,its around 10-$13.00,If your problem still exsists,Your powersterring pressure switch may haved a loose connection or has went Bad.Try replacing the switch before buying a new power Steering Pump,The Power Steering Pressure Swith is around $35.00.Or Go Ahead and Get a New Power Steering Pump after you have changed the filter.Power Sterring Remanafactored Pumps run around $75.00- $90.00,there are 2-Types of pumps to Fit your Model, 1-with Vacum Assist,And 1-With Hyroboost.
