Question about 2001 Chevrolet Cobalt

1 Answer

Powering Steering by wire

I have aa 2006 Chevy Cobalt and my power steering is now completely out. It first started off as a short and once you restart the car it fixed itself. Well now you can no longer do that. Once you turn the car on, the powering steering is out. The dealership says I have to replace to whole steering column which would cost me almost $800. I still can't believe GM has never recalled this problem since I am not the only one with this problem. Is there anythng else I can do without having to fork out a lot of money that I don't have?

2006 Chevy Cobalt. My power steering goes out.


It sounds like the power steering motor is overheating pre maturely. Changing the motor should take care of the problem. What really happens is the motor reports to the power steering module that it is over heating and the module is shutting power to the motor down, the motor is actually no overheating.

Power Steering


Yes your absolutly right.
I have a 2006 Cobalt and my power steering completly failed. And this isn't a cheap fix. A quote of over $700 for a steering column replacement because these cars run electronic steering. Unless your under warrenty start searching salvage yards for working steering columns.

YOU HAVE AN ELECTRIC POWER STEERING SYSTEM. YOUR POWER STEERING CONTROL MODULE IS THE MOST LIKELY CAUSE. SCAN THE SYSTEM FOR CODES AND GO FROM THERE.
