    Are you getting a check engine light or have any fault codes in memory?

some power steering system is computer control. if you disconnect battery the control module have to be program.the control module uses vechicle speed sensor and steering wheel rotation sensor.to operate an actuator in the power steering pump to control pump pressure and steering assistance.

check to see if the serpantine belt is still there. It sounds like like it broke. this belt runs all of the accesories on the vehicle including the water pump. So if this happened it probably starting running hot too

When I'm driving I press the brake to stop and the steering wheel shakes. Please help


Usually happens at 60mph. You need a balancing job done, it would be strange if the brakes suddenly decided to act up at 45 mph every time. Doubt that ur problem is the brakes. Get balancing job dine first, only twenty. If problem continues THEN take ur car to a mechanic

Engine surge at 60 mph


on flat ground? 60mph.
my guess, is, its running lean.
use a scan tool (real no useless code readers)
and look for closed loopstatus at 60mph. and idle.
if its not going to CL, status, that IS the top symptoms.
and LTFT, (long term fuel trim)
+5% Is typical, +40% is lean.

lean is caused by many things, sorry more tests.
one, is low fuel pressure.

(or under reported, air , for any reasons. MAP or MAF based engines)
under reported, caused, lean.
in closed loop this is corrected.
at wide open throttle on hill if power is low, that might be low fuel pressures , so does it do that?

2002 VW Passat shakes when on the highway traveling over 60mph. ABS module needs to be changed, as well as some engine coils. Do not know why shaking is happening, any info on this?


Over 60 MPH is likely due to the wheels being out of balance. I would take it to a local tire shop and have the wheels balanced and then take for a test drive. Look also for bent rims or any damage to the tires but over 60 is likely out of balance.

Not shifting into drive


not shifting into drive......how you going 60mph? downhill with the wind behind you?

You put it in drive and its "not shifting into drive" what happens then? If it doesn't shift into drive, you're not moving. If you're moving, You can feel it shift. The rpms change. keep track.

2002 chrysler concorde lx low idle


with a 2002 Concord 3.5 V-6, what should the rpm be at 60mph? 70 mph?

I'm not sure if the overdrive gear is lost in the tranny, but the transmission light is on.

Thanks
