have seen this problem before and it was a bad main fuse under hood...get tester and test big fuses in box under hood 1 by 1 until you find bad one and replace...you can also pull in autozone and ask them if they can test for you....it costs around 10 dollars for this fuse i believe...they are very helpful if you ask...good luck
Have you checked the level of the power steering fluid if it is low it can cause a noise similar to what you described. The power steering pump could be starting to fail and making the noise. I would suggest checking the power steering fluid level and if low, they make some fluid that has power steering fluid conditioner, supposed to help extend the life of the power steering pump, if it is low you need to follow the lines from the pump and see if you can find a leak anywhere. also I would take notice of the color of the power steering fluid, if not too much trouble maybe take a picture of the fluid and upload it here, the fluid can break down and need to be replaced.
ECM has nothing to do those thing's . Probably not A BCM problem either . Did the Garage check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's ?
DTC B3064 or B3069
DTC B3128, B3133, or B3138
Did they test the electrical circuit's for these componets ? Looking at a wirng diagram to see what if anything these have in common ,power feed , ground etc. maybe . What kind of garage did you take it to . Just to let you know ,replacing any module on your vehicle would need programming , dealer .
Get a helper---turn on key--then off---wiggle wheel back & forth while helper tries to pull out key. Don't twist key! If nogo--tow to garage or have mechanic remove steering column shell & check or fix mechanism.
The Dealer may be right would want to check the belt and tensioner to make sure they are working correcly. I would do this ASAP. any garage can do that for you it does not have to be the dealer, however if you have warrenty they may need to fix it to be covered under a warrenty.
Do you have the steering wheel controls? If so, my guess is the "source"button on the steering wheel control maybe sticking. If I remember, I'll look at my Impala and see if the contol can be disconnected at the steering wheel.
Pricing vary, depending on where you live and if you want it done at a dealership or at a local shop.It would be about 1hour of labor +price of the hose+power steering fluid. Dealer charges about $70.00 an hour. You can call the dealer ask how much to change the hose. Also a local shop can gave you an estimate.
