This is a huge problem the solution is a recall but GM sucks. We had ours go out this week. We found a fix for 3.00 off of another site. what the problem is that there is a build up in the PS motor. You need to remove the two bolts that hold it into place on the steering column and the one electrical connection. The motor will slide right out, once u have it out remove the two bolts that hold the back housing on to the front of the motor, dont worry about any brushes or anything falling out because it is self contained. After you have it apart you will notice alot of soot and grime built up inside. That is what is causing the problem. Go buy a can of Electrical motor cleaner, or brake cleaner. Spray both parts well, allow them to dry, reassemble the motor and reinstall.

Why do I have an intermittent problem with ABS and power steering lights?


Bad or loose intermittent wire connections to and from sensors. Some unauthorised mechanic has been working on the car? Take it back and talk to the service manager, or the shop owner.

How do I stop my car showing ABS, POWER STEERING and BREAKING SYSTEM lights and beeping.?


-First able check all the belts. If any loose. (I mean not tight or good tension).
-If all tensions are good then turn on the car, let it run for 10-15 minutes and check the voltage at the battery. If it's below 13 volts
then the problem is the alternator.

Good Luck

have to remove the center pad of the steering wheel(should be 2 6mm bolt holding it on)on the back side of the steering wheel. once you have that off there should be (i think) a yellow wire that wire goes to the horn contact switch. replace that contact.
