Unless they have gone to electric power assist on the power steering, should be no correlation.

However, is your accessory belt for running your alternator and power steering pump ok? Is it tight enough.

While an electrical issue should not affect the power steering, a loose or missing belt could cause the (1) alternator to not properly charge the battery and (2) the power steering to not have power.

2006 HHR LT remote start and power steering not working


I recently saw on the news that some models were being recalled for a faulty ignition switch. (Where the key goes.) It happens for no apparent reason and kills the engine and locks the steering wheel. They said only 1 accident has occurred but imagine it happening at 60 miles per hour. You should call and see if your model is one of the bad ones.

Power steering not working. I changed the 2 fuses.When I start the car the power steering work a few minutes and stop.What next.HHR 2006 Chevrolet. braxton.rose@yahoo.com


check power steering fluid level. The power steering pump is powered by a belt, it has a cap which unscrews off the top. Check the level of the fluid on the dipstick. Fill with new fluid to the full mark. without knowing more details, this is probably the problem.
