More then likely your power steering unit has gone out. Is it just as hard to turn the vehicle when it is turned on when it is off? If it is intermittent meaning it is easy sometimes and hard other times, it would still be a good indication that your power steering unit is failing and or going bad.

Kevin,
I think I read that there was a recall for that particular issue, and the 06 was included. You should be able to take it in to the dealer to be fixed under the recall.

Fixing power steering leaks in 2005 Toyota Highlander


The lines. you have 2.
high pressure and low pressure. combined, they cost around $400 at dealers but can be found cheaper online.
labor at a shop to replace both lines calls for 2.3 hours, so you will pay their cost per hour of labor.
plus shop fees and tax. (fees cover shop supplies like fluid, gloves, etc)
If the problem is the power steering pump itself, the average cost at shops for the part is $450 (part only) plus 1.6 hours of labor.

if the issue is the steering rack itself, you can find that part online for $350 on average.
If you just let the shop order the steering rack, they may hit you for $1,200-$1,400 just for the part, and labor times for that job is 4.2 hours.

Please note, the link I have attached may notbe the correct part for your toyota. You would have to search for the correct vehicle.
include engine size and other required info like "Toyota camry LE, 2.5L, front wheel drive"
Hope this helps.

2004 Toyota highlander steering wheel is locked but turned halfway, key wont turn and wheels are straight


there is a load on the lock pin in the steering column try turning the steering wheel a bit left or right to release the pin as you try turning the key.
Steering wheel locks never lock straight ahead as the idea is that if the car is being stolen it will turn a circle rather that move straight

Power steering repair


My 2006 highlander is starting to make a clicking noise when i turn the wheels in either direction. In looking at the fluid reservoir, it appears very dark in color. I'm guessing the fluid needs to be drained and replaced. Should that solve the problem or does it sound like a pump replacement?

Steering wheel squeels when I make turns mainly in cold weather


It is probably a power steering belt or the power steering pump. Check the pump fluid, if it's okay get someone else to sit in the car and turn the wheel while you look under the hood. Listen to locate the sound.
