Chevy cobalt's power steering problems can be fixin about 30 minutes by (im not sure if this is a temporary fix i tryed it and have had no problem for the last month)

1. check if the power steering comes back on when you turn off then back on your car
(if it does it means your steering motor works fine)

2. you need to remove the motors power wire just un hook it your steering motor it has two bolts holding it in place under neath the dash.

3. remove the bolts that hold the black housing from the motor.

4. get a air hose and blow a couple of short bursts around the 3 points (the flat tabs on the end)

5. get a small light sanding paper not to ruff a fine one will do clean around the points and between the motor.

6 get a bruch a small one cut it so it does not break any of the connections in the motor sweep all the black dust and finish off with some blasts of air.

7 put the housing back on to the motor and screw back not to tight then screw it back under neath the dash.

8. connect the wiring back and start your car turn the wheel all the way several times so the motor can fully turn and you should neer have the steerign problem again

2007 vw rabbit yellow power steering light coming on


VW rabbit 2007 has electronic power steering so you have to send it for diagnostic testing on an ODB II tester. It is the only way you going to pick up that intermittent fault. The error code on the diagnostic tester will reveal what is causing the problem. But go check out http://volkswagen-polo-highline.blogspot.com/ to see how this gets done.

  • You have Electric Power Steering (EPS) not the traditional power steering pump. So there is no place to put power steering fluid in your vehicle.

  • Hope this helps.
