  • You need to specify the particulars of the vehicle. Make, model, year.
  • My first guess is you have a broken fan belt driving the power steering.
  • Power brakes are generally vacuum driven But on certain Dodge chrysler trucks they are driven off of the power steering pump.
  • If it isn't a broken fan belt, the power steering pump is probably either low on fluid or bad.

Check the level of your power steering fluid and have your pump checked. You are probably just low o fluid.
