Question about 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt

1 Answer

2006 Chevy Cobalt. My power steering goes out.

I have a 2006 Chevy Cobalt. My Power Steering will go out when I am driving and the indicator will come on. If I turn the car off and turn it right back on, the power steering works again. However, the past week it tends to go off more frequently. Even when I turn the car off and back on, the power steering goes out again a few minutes later. This happened last summer too when it got above 80 degrees. Then it stopped happening for months because it wasn't as hot. It is now winter and has started happening again, so now I don't think it has anything to do with the temperature.

It sounds like the power steering motor is overheating pre maturely. Changing the motor should take care of the problem. What really happens is the motor reports to the power steering module that it is over heating and the module is shutting power to the motor down, the motor is actually no overheating.

Yes your absolutly right.
I have a 2006 Cobalt and my power steering completly failed. And this isn't a cheap fix. A quote of over $700 for a steering column replacement because these cars run electronic steering. Unless your under warrenty start searching salvage yards for working steering columns.

YOU HAVE AN ELECTRIC POWER STEERING SYSTEM. YOUR POWER STEERING CONTROL MODULE IS THE MOST LIKELY CAUSE. SCAN THE SYSTEM FOR CODES AND GO FROM THERE.
