2009 saturn aura hard steering I was told that the steering motor moduel was bad so I replaced it still hard to steere what could it be

Who told you , was it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ? Rather then just replacing parts why don't you take it to a qualified repair shop . Besides , the new module need's Programming and Setup , and a factory scan tool to do it .
Steering Position Sensor Calibration
Install the scan tool.
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Center the steering wheel.
With the scan tool select Special Functions.
Select Steering Position Sensor Calibration and press the Enter key. The scan tool screen will flash Calibration in Progress then display Calibration Complete.
Press the exit key.
Use the scan tool in order to clear any EPS DTCs.

in order to accomplish this you have to take the programmed steering position out of the loop. in order to do this y7ou have to install a relay that only activates the when the vehicle is in bypass.when you use the auto start it sends a signal to the alarm to bypass however the steering also gets a pulse you have to seperate the steering circuit from the bypass loop. pulling a fuse won't do the trick . you need a multimeter a relay, piggy back connecters and some wire. you are going to have to use different color wire perferably black white orange and purple so you can clearly identify your circuits. tryinging to keep the steering in one position is not feasiable because it's memory orientated and there for has a link in the ecm and can't be tampered with due to safety issues

Have 2008 chevy Malibu Ltz.past few days the dash will say "power steering "of course wheel gets tight. it's electric..not sure if the pump is going out or if it's the can someone tell?

The system can be scanned for faults, in the is case you need that test performed. The pump only runs when the computer control unit commands it to run it is on demand, this information comes from sensors in the system..

How much to replace power steering fuse on a chevy maiulb

Wrench light means you have a fault or service is due. Not sure what fault is . If it is a fuse the part cost is small, not sure about labour cost, it depends on where fuse is located but shouldn't take more than a few minutes. Hope this helps

What do I look for to fix the Power seats and power tilt steering has no power

A control module ! Electronics The steering column has a tilt/telescoping control system that consists of an electronic control module capable of class 2 serial data communication, a steering column power assembly with positioning motor and sensor, and a steering column control switch. The multi-function lever provides for the control of the headlamp high beams, and the windshield washer and wiper.
The tilt/telescoping steering column in/out/up/down switch is an input to the driver position module (DPM). The tilt/telescoping drive motor is an output function of the DPM.
Steering column memory settings are stored in the DPM. The steering column position sensor is an internal part of the tilt/telescoping motor assemblies, and is an input to the DPM. The DPM uses the position sensor input when storing and recalling memory settings.
Same thing with the seats , electronic control module .
Battery positive voltage is supplied at all times to the memory seat module (MSM) through the battery positive voltage circuit from the POWER SEATS circuit breaker located instrument panel (I/P) fuse block. This voltage is used to power up MSM and also to apply power to the seat motors when commanded. Battery positive voltage from the TILT/TELE SW/MEM SEAT MOD fuse located in the body control module (BCM) fuse block that supplies voltage to the seat adjuster switch and the memory function switch, also supplies voltage to the MSM. The MSM monitors this voltage circuit in order to determine if battery voltage is supplied to the seat adjuster switch. The MSM is grounded through the module ground circuit and G301.

I have problem with windscreen washer,i cant find some fuse or relays,any help,many thanks

Check connections to the washer pump motor. Test the pump motor with a jumper from positive power or battery terminal to the
pump positive connection. Double check the negative side (ground) for good connection to the body metal. Corrosion does funny things to electrical connections. Bad pump motor? Replace the pump. If the motor is ok, follow wiring back to a controlling relay. Follow the wire from steering collum switch which could be bad to a relay. Check steering collum switch for voltage when turned on. No luck, Repair manual make, model year possibly at or

Action tractive, abs--trk won't go

Your best bet ,take it to a qualified repair shop ! P0351, ignition coil A primary/secondary circuit-------what does this operate
The electrical circuit for the coil for cylinder # 1 , could be the wiring , coil or the driver (transistor)inside the PCM - engine computer . Replacing the PCM would need to be programmed , DEALER ONLY . Just replacing parts isn't going to fix this . Doing the diagnostic's for the code . Codes don't tell you a part is bad or needs to be replaced . All codes have a diagnostic test procedure that has to be followed to find the cause of the code setting . Don't know where you came up with B0050 & B0455 Has nothing to do with traction control . These codes would start with C . tune up right? No .
trk won't go ??????? C0445 This has to do with the rear wheel steering system !
The steering wheel position sensor (SWPS) provides one analog signal and 3 digital signals. The digital signals, Phase A, Phase B and marker pulse, are direct inputs to the rear wheel steering control module. The analog signal is input to the BCM and is sent via a class 2 message to the rear wheel steering control module. Battery voltage is supplied to the sensor from the cruise fuse to operate the digital portion of the sensor.
A 12-volt reference is provided by the rear wheel steering control module to the Phase A, Phase B, and marker pulse circuits of the SWPS. The module monitors each circuit as it is either remains high or is pulled low by the SWPS.
The scan tool displays the Phase A and Phase B data parameters as either HIGH or LOW when the steering wheel is being rotated. Each change from HIGH to LOW, or LOW to HIGH, represents one degree of steering wheel rotation. When observing the Phase A and Phase B data with the scan tool, the parameters will not always display the same value at the same time.
The marker pulse is a digital pulse signal that is displayed as HIGH by the scan tool with the steering wheel angle between +10 degrees and -10 degrees. At greater than 10 degrees steering wheel angle in either direction, the marker pulse data will be displayed as LOW.
The BCM provides the 5-volt reference and low reference for the analog portion of the SWPS. The BCM reads the SWPS analog signal in voltage, which is typically 2.5-volt with the steering wheel on center. The voltage ranges from 0.25-volt at approximately 1 full turn left to 4.75-volt at approximately 1 full turn right. The voltage will then remain at that level for the remainder of steering wheel travel. This voltage can be monitored in BCM data display.
The rear wheel steering control module receives the analog signal via a class 2 message from the BCM. When monitoring the rear wheel steering data, this information is displayed in the Steering Wheel Angle (TBC) Data parameter, and is shown in degrees. The range of the display is +/- 225 degrees, with negative numbers representing steering input to the left, and positive numbers representing input to the right.

This does not mean the sensor is bad !!!!!!!!!! Take it to a qualified repair shop before you make it non fixable .

Quadrasteerâ„¢ is a 4-wheel steering system that dramatically enhances low speed maneuverability, high speed stability, and towing capability. The system is an electrically powered rear wheel steering system comprised of the following components:
You have no idea what your messing with .
Rear Wheel Steering Control Module: The rear wheel steering control module controls all functions of the rear wheel steering system . The module has a dedicated power feed line from the under hood fuse holder. The fuse is a 125 amp mega fuse . The wiring is routed to the rear of the vehicle. The rear wheel steering control module is located above the rear mounted spare tire. The rear wheel steering control module uses the inputs listed above to determine when and how far to turn the rear wheels. The rear wheel steering control module also uses the hall switches in the steering gear motor , shorting relay , and motor control relay to monitor and control the direction and speed the motor operates. The rear wheel control module also controls the duty cycle of the phase leads to the motor . The motor control relay is part of the rear wheel steering control module and is not serviceable . The rear wheel steering control module uses both a class 2 and a discrete vehicle speed sensor signal . The system will not function without a discrete vehicle speed sensor signal . The rear wheel steering control module uses the 2 vehicle speed sensor signals for comparison purposes . The TBC sends a class 2 message for the analog portion of the signals from the steering wheel position sensor. The rear wheel steering control module uses inputs from the steering wheel position sensor to determine steering wheel position and rate of change. The rear wheel position sensor signals provide the rear wheel steering control module with rear wheel position data. The rear wheel steering control module will send out a class 2 message to the IPC to turn on and off the amber Service 4-Wheel Steering System Indicator. The rear wheel steering control module controls the indicators in the mode switch on the dash .

Stuck electric tilt steering - Is there a manual over ride?

My 2002 millenia did the same thing. My mechanic friend had me take a screw drive and go under the steering wheel where there is an opening and tap up in there. Then my steering wheel came back down. I did however turn off the auto after that. The motor is going bad.

Where is the power steering Reservoir in a Bora V5

i haven't been able to confirm it positively but it appears that car has electric power steering. look at the items driven by the serpentine belt. do any appear to have a two hoses coming out of it. do this when the motor is off to avoid the potential of harming yourself.

Steering wheel is electric and is stuck in the down position.

it can be a relay, or the steering motor itself. the motor can be removed, but it is tricky to access. 2 holes need to be made in the lower panel to access 2 of the 4 screws holding it on. then, the motor can be taken apart and cleaned. this usually works. if the relay is bad, you have to locate it, it is down by the brake pedal, kinda hard to describe where in print.
