The dealer needs to look at your car.The electric over hydrolic stearing motor or the controller is defective or needs to be reprogramed.You can check the fluid but it will not be your end problem.

Have a 2003 Barina. Driving home and noticed the dash lights fading. Then the airbag light came on before the car lost power steering and electric windows stopped working. Lights died.

Start by insuring the battery and charging system are good. Some of these systems act very strange if the battery charge gets low.

At oil temp falshing when driving

There may be a trouble code in memory for the drive train, could be a history code that wasn't cleared after a repair or could a present code. You should have it checked for codes, If you have noticed a problem in shifting or tight circles (like in a parking lot) skidding or bind-up, then there is a problem, usually in the rear of the transmission transfer clutch assembly solenoid valve.

05 legacy sqealing sound when I'm stopped and turn

All symptoms of a loose or worn drive belt. As the belt wears, it develops slick spots that slip instead of grab. Since the main drive belt drives the power steering and alternator, this would be consistent with your issue.

1992 Buick Lasabre Right Brake Light

Just a thought, but I figure with an electrical nightmare, you need as many posibilities as you can get. There is a switch behind your brake pedal. when you step on the brake, it contacts a button on the switch, which allows power to get to your brake lights. Maybe one of the wires coming from the switch is catching the steering column mechanisms. I hate electrical stuff. So, I wish you the best of luck. I sincerely hope that I could be of some help.

Power steering just stopped when i was driving

The steering is electric in the Ion. There is no power steering fluid. It is an electric motor that assists the steering. Check the fuses under the hood first. If they are good you will probably have to go to the dealer to have the motor replaced.
