Cleaned all the connectors right under the airbox which I took out with some connector cleaner i got from the local autoparts store and it worked. Try that before you spend $600 on a new unit.

Steering on masda rx8 very stiff when first driveing then after a couple of miles is ok

the 1st thing to try is flushing the power steering with clean fluid, this may correct the problem, the next step is to see if the power steering pump is defective or the steering rack, this takes special testing and skills, any shop can flush the fluid or u can do it with a suction gun, then add lucas brand power steering sealer and conditioner, this works well if u have a internal fluid pressure leak in the Rack.

The steering has gone out on my 1997 dodge ram 3500 extended van. at first the steering wheel had to be turned all the way to actually turn, but now the steering is completely gone.

mcdevito75 here Sounds like the Rack and Pinion steering unit is shot. Let your local shop replace this unit. Also did you check the power steering fluid level??

Stearing gone stiff

It's understood that the 2004 RX-8 came standard with Electric power steering.
There's a computer module for the electric steering assist too, which sounds like it has it's own diagnostic port.
On your own, I'd suggest looking for blown fuses.. beyond that it appears that any diagnosing and fixing is up to your local/preferred stealership.

How do I fix the power steering n my mazda rx8 04?

My RX8 had the same problem. First, change your battery cable ends. On the Positive cable there is a white wire that powers the power steering. It probably has a bad connection at the battery post. I cut the end off my rx8 and just put a regular battery cable end on it and my problem was solved.

2004 mazda rx8. Power steering light came on this morning and I lost power steering.

You either lost your belt, or the oil is gone from a broken hose.

Power steering fails

I had the same problem, there is a cooling fan for the power steering pump that went out and caused some damage to the pump. The intermitent problem finally got worse and I had the pump replaced read: expensive about $1000. See if they have a rebuilt pump available.
