The Chevy Equinox has an 80 Amp mega fuse that tends to fail and cause all sort of power steering and Stabilitrak issues. Before I messed with the belts or power steering pumps, I would check the fuse first.

    My stabilitrak light came on and I read what was posted in this link. I went to the dealership and spent $10 on the 80 amp mega fuse and it worked! I have not had any reoccurring issues since I did that. However, the dealership did try to talk me into replacing the Stabilitrak censor for $1500! I took a pass on that =-)

Number One: Check to be sure the belt is tight, If you are hearing a squeal, the belt may look tight but not be. The serpentine belt has a spring tensioner that I have seen fail, and the belt was just barely tight enough to stay in place, but would not turn the power steering pump at times and it has to turn that pulley to pump the fluid, or no power assist to the steering will occur. Number two: Power steering pumps have internal parts that will fail, and cause the loss of internal pressure. It may just be bad. Number Three: If you are not good at mechanic work...Please take it to the best shop you can find. You need smooth operating, power assisted steering at ALL TIMES. There Is No Fuse to Blow. Power steering by Chevrolet is still by fluid/pump.

2006 Chevy Equinox. Vehicle has lost power steering communication is what a service shop is telling me. Any ideas on this?

I have a 2008 model Equinox and my SUV has electrically assisted power steering. I had to have my truck jump started once and the garage guy hooked up the cables across the fuse that controls this steering unit. In my case this took out the 80 AMP
fuse in the motor compartment area. I had only manual hard
steering until I replaced this fuse. If you still have the SUV
with this problem, it could be just a fuse. Good luck.

I need to put steering wheel fluid for my 05 chevy equinox don't know where to put it in. Can someone please help me?...

2005-2009 models used electric power steering assist exclusively. There is mo power steering pump, reservoir, or fluid on these models. Instead they use an electric motor mounted to the steering column to provide steering assist 2010 models still use the electric power steering on the four cylinder models but also use a conventional hydraulic power steering on the v-6 models. If you have no power steering assist check the 60 amp main fuse for the power steering in the under hood fuse block if that is o.k. You will need a scan tool to find out what is wrong with the system. It is not uncommon for the electric motors to fail or for the fuse to blow while jump starting the vehicle.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at
