If it is a hydro-electric power steering you could have an electrical fault but if it is engine driven suspect a broken or very worn drive belt.

Why does my battery light and brake light come on while I'm driving and the power steering shuts off?


The motor is shutting off, better find the problem before it dies while you are pulling out in front of a semi and you end up dead.

My battery died on my 2009 equinox & after I charged it the stabilitrak off light came on and now the vehicle is VERY hard to steer,,any ideas????


Heavy steering is an indication that the drive belt for the power steering is loose or missing. IT may be that that is the reason for a flat battery as the belt will also drive the alternator and the battery has drained down trying to supply the power to the electrical parts.. With a flat battery there may be a problem with the CPU program so use a code reader to reset it and then see if the light comes on.

2006 Pontiac G6 electrical power steering problems


The electrical steering system on the vehicle had a common problem with early failure caused by a sensor in the steering column. The correction is replacement of the steering column.

Power steering problem is hard and dont find the power steering pomp


These vehicles have electric power steering. There is an electric motor under the steering column that provides the power steering assist. GM also had a special policy coverage on this motor as it has been notorious for causing the problems you are describing. Read on:

Some customers of 2004-2007 model year Saturn ION vehicles, equipped with electric power steering, may experience a sudden loss of power steering assist, which could occur at any time while driving the vehicle. If the power steering assist is lost, a chime will be heard and the Message Center will display a "PWR STR" warning message. The vehicle can still be steered in a safe manner but will require greater driver effort at low vehicle speeds or when stopped. Typically, the next time the vehicle is started, the power steering assist will return and the "PWR STR" message would no longer be displayed..................
This special coverage covers the condition described above for a period of 10 years or 100,000 miles (160,000 km), whichever occurs first, from the date the vehicle was originally placed in service, regardless of ownership.
Retailers are to replace the power steering motor. The repairs will be made at no charge to the customer.

When driving the EPS light on the dash board come on and the sterring become stiff. when i turn off the ignition and start the engine again the EPS light come on and off normally and the every thing return...


EPS stands for Electric Power Steering. Hyundais have electric power steering instead of belt driven pumps. But they still require power steering fluid, Check the fluid to see if it is low. That would trigger the signal to come on.

Battery light is on and stiff to steer the wheel


Sounds like the serpentine bellt has come off the drive pulleys. this belt is the link between the crankshaft pulley and all the other pulleys. it drives the power steering pump, a/c compressor, and your alternator.
Stiff steering due to no Power steering pump activity and the battery light is on due to the alternator not charging the battery and supplying power to vehicle components.

Power steering light came on while driving.....changed the fuse....it drove fine...next day....power steering light came on again while driving....let the car sit overnight....working fine now....its been...


This is a known problem with the power steering which will probably require replacement of the power steering motor. The HHR uses an electric 12V DC motor to provide the power steering force, and they have started failing.

GM is recalling the Cobalt and other vehicles for this issue, but not yet the HHR. If you are out of warranty, you will probably be personally responsible for the cost of diagnostics and replacement.

You will probably need to contact your dealer unless you are able to replace the motor yourself. Sorry.
