Sounds like the power steering electronic motor burned out. You see the Chevy Cobalt, HHR, and I believe the Malibu do not have a hydraulic power steering system so that explains the reason you do not check the fluid level in the power steering reservoir. At the dealership the retail price is around $1,000. That's the same problem I ran into a few years back, but unfortunately my car was still under warranty. So I hope your car is STILL under warranty to get this fixed.

I haver\ a light on dashboard that looks like a steering wheel with a ! what does it mean


It's your speed sensitive power steering light. Your speed sensitive power steering makes your wheel harder to turn when you're going fast and easier to turn when you are going slow. I have a 2005 Forenza and mine keeps coming on and off but I can't figure out why yet. Hope it helps!

I had the same problem. The steering wheel controls are very easy to pop off with a small thin screwdriver. Once they are loose just unplug them. Order new ones from your local Chevy dealership. They weren't very expensive. If I remember correctly they were only about $35 each. Just make sure to get the correct color to match your interior.

Power Stearing


The same thing happed to my 06 cobalt. The thing is that the DUMB A** at GM made the whole power steering electrical. Your going to have to change the the little computer that is located right under the steering wheel. if you go to the dealership they are going to RIP YOU OFF. What i did was i got the part at a GM junk yard, all it cost me was $200. your going to have to take the whole steering wheel of and change it. I hope i helped. GM needs to do a recall b4 someone God forbid, dies form this in an accident.
I still do like my cobalt thought lol

Airbag light GMC Yukon


I had the same problem in a way. My airbag light would come on and then go off. The airbag connections in the steering wheel got stuck somehow. It only can rotate lke 3 and 1/2 times and over the years mine just got stuck. (my yukon has over 200000 miles) All i did was press on the horn and wiggle the horn cover for about 20 seconds. I havent had a problem since.
