Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette
Have you inspected the belt? It is probably stretched or damaged...the belt turns the power steering unit, and charges your battery via the alternator...(low battery light) Did you drive through some deep water last night? Be sure to inspect this so you do not get stranded. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: steering wheel is hard to steer
Depending on who, and how they checked the pump, it could be your pump is getting ready to cost you some hard earned cash. For a car of it's age...you may wan tto try and see if you can pick up a bone yard refuse just to check tings out...then agai you ru the risk of wasting time and money that way too.
I have to differ in my offering of advise from the last person that gave you a tip.
Buy American........it could be your job you're saving.
I hope this helps you in some way, good luck from us @ FixYa.com..have a safe New Year

very much sounds like a belt ,and that was the alternator light whether the same beltdrives them both or it was stalled with abit of the belt that was breaking up ,who knows ?i wouldn`t recommend you drive it dependant on the type of power steering it is ,some serious damage could result ,that would be a lot more to fix than the cost of a tow .
