1st check the PS fluid level, if that is ok you have a defective rack and pinion steering gear, u will need to have it replaced and then the front end re-aligned.

Controls on steering wheel of 2006 Chevy Equinox don't work


That's usually the sign of a bad clockspring--a spool of flexible cable that winds and unwinds as you turn the wheel and carries the signals from the switches and airbag. You have to remove the steering wheel to get at the parts.

2006 Chevy Equinox. Vehicle has lost power steering communication is what a service shop is telling me. Any ideas on this?


I have a 2008 model Equinox and my SUV has electrically assisted power steering. I had to have my truck jump started once and the garage guy hooked up the cables across the fuse that controls this steering unit. In my case this took out the 80 AMP
fuse in the motor compartment area. I had only manual hard
steering until I replaced this fuse. If you still have the SUV
with this problem, it could be just a fuse. Good luck.

Ignition key will not turn on my 2005 chevy equinox


Try turning your steering wheel hard to left or right while trying to turn the key and see if that resolves tour problem. Sometimes if you shut the engine off with the wheels turned the power steering will hold pressure against the steering lock mechanism.

What are some of the reasons I would hear a squeak/whine when turning the steering wheel on my 2005 Chevy Equinox?


The steering components need to be greased is my first option, but if this doesn't help, then your problem could be the power steering pump causing the sound.

In my 06 Chevy Equinox I went to put the key in the ignition and the ignition wouldnt turn to start the car up?


**** the steering wheel hard side to side. That should release the interlock. Otherwise the ignition switch is worn (unusual in a 06 car unless it's an awful lot of stop and go driving).
