Once again someone post something that he has no clue about, you could do a little research on the subject ! There is no serpentine belt or power steering fluid because this vehicle has
The electric power steering (EPS) system reduces the amount of effort needed to steer the vehicle. The system uses the body control module (BCM), power steering control module (PSCM), torque sensor, discrete battery voltage supply circuit, EPS motor, serial data bus, and the instrument panel cluster (IPC) message center to perform the system functions. The PSCM, torque sensor, not the EPS motor are serviced separately from each other or from the steering column. Any EPS components diagnosed to be malfunctioning requires replacement of the steering column assembly, also known as the EPS assembly.
Do you have a EPS light lit on the instrument cluster or message center to display PWR STR (or Power Steering) warning message ? GM had a recall on these !

Why does power steering get harder at lower speeds


if the belt is nice and tight and is spinning around the pulley and fluids are full, then your steering pump is going bad

Steering problem. Hard to turn the wheel to the left on slow turns. ABS, check engine and another dash light stay on constantly since this has been occuring. any advice?


Could be steering rack, but I would check the power steering fluid & pump to be sure they are working properly. Slow turns tells me the engine RPMs are down and that relates directly to any belts on the engine, i.e. power steering pump.
Take a look for any mechanical damage. The ABS is probably unrelated to the hard turns. Use an ODB-II scanner to get the codes and work from there.

Steering not straightening out at slow speed


Worn steering components which allow the steering wheels to travel too far either way,hop underneath and get a friend to move the steering while you have a look for movement between the components, or a power steering component like relief valve. Its a bit hard to know without seeing the vehicle, i suggest a steering and suspension specialist like pedders or similar.These guys can do a safety inspection only, if you want to do the work yourself.

My 2005 Chevy Impala's power stearing problem?


From the sounds of it, that pothole messed up your steering. Something is binding in the steering train, could be a damaged tie rod end, one of the other steering joints, or even the rack and pinion steering itsself. When it's binding, the power steering pump has to work too hard, slowing the engine down, making your lights dim because it's also slowing the alternator(on the same belt drive) and furthering your steering problem. You need to get it checked out immediately before something breaks and gets you into an accident. Remember, if steering linkage breaks, you have NO control of your vehicle, and it doesn't care if you're driving 70 mph on the highway.
