How do i bypass a power steering pump in a 2001 mazda protege without using a smaller belt


You can't. And I wouldn't do it for several reasons. First of all, it will be really difficult to turn the wheel at slower speeds and the reaction time of turning the wheels will be increased tremendously, thus increasing your chances of getting into an accident. Having no power steering assist on a car originally designed with power steering IS NOT the same as a car with manual steering. Second: many power steering racks require some form of recirculating fluid to keep the seals and the rack lubricated. So without the pump, eventually you might seize up the rack or blow a seal and that's a nice expensive repair.

Steering wheel will not turn with engine running and in drive


Since you did not list a year/model, I can only generalize and state that you have a failure with your power steering pump, such as loss of fluid, loose or broken v-belt (serpentine belt), or seized rack.

Sounds like something broke. Either in the steering column or the linkage between the column and the rack and pinion. Take it to a reliable repair shop for examination and repair. Best case scenario is the linkage between the column and rack and pinion came apart but I have never heard of it happening. Worse case scenario you need a new column or rack and pinion. You don't say what make and model of your vehicle is.

Power steering issues


I'm going to agree with the rack conclusion. Keep in mind I can't see it for myself.
If you take the load off the front wheels, you should be able to turn the steering wheel without effort.
If the effort changes while turning the wheel, the only things affected would be the rack and the column.
If you notice it turns ok with the engine off but not with the engine running, it could be something with the pump or one of the lines, or still something with the rack.

Steering rack replacement on a 99 cady deville, how difficult ?


Rather difficult. Involves disconnecting the tie rod ends. Steering linkage from steering wheel. Disconnecting the power steering pump lines and unbolting the rack and pinion from the body. Not a lot of room to get at stuff.

This sounds like textbook steering rack failure. If the internal seals wear out the rack will leak fluid internally, causing the exact symptoms you're describing. These can be rebuilt, but it's hardly worth the effort. It's less headache and only slightly more expensive to replace it.
