Yes, if its an electronicly assisted rack and pinion which im almost certain HHR's are. check your under-hood fuse panel for the power steering pump fuse relay. it's very likely blown. another, more frightening, possibility is that when you started your engine on the jump, the other cars battery was a much higher cold cranking ampere rating than yours and you sent a fatal short to the pump itself, even if the fuse blew it might not have prevented this since high cold cranking amps can bridge relays like no other if your cars circutry isnt meant for it.

I have a 06 saturn ion, automatic, i left my lights on, my battery died so i got a jump start, now the check engin light is on, the power steering indicator is on, the speedometer doesnt work and when


most of the time people unknowingly jump start the vehicle and blow the steering fuse in the engine compartment-this is a very common problem that I have seen at least 2x a week. The check engine light is probably related to a battery voltage low code or an electronic steering code. Check your owners manual for the location of the fuse and just replace it.

Trying to locate the fuse that is for the power steering for a 2007 Chevy Equinox....battery needed to be jumped and lost the power steering


Before continuing with your power sreering problem, please review these articles:
Where's The Fuse?
What Else Could Be Wrong?

The fuse for the Electronic Power Steering (EPS) is marked "EPS" and is located in the underhood fuse block on the left side of the engine compartment. It is an 80 Amp fuse. If this fuse was blown as a result of jump-starting the engine, something must have gone terribly wrong! Like - maybe the cables got hooked up backwards or something? You probably have some serious computer system damage...I would get prepared to spend some BIG BUCKS!

06 HHR - battery died, recharged..now no power steering???


In the under hood fuse block you have to locate the power steering fuse and replace the blown fuse.The next time you jump the vehicle make sure and do not hook up the positive cable to the terminal under the fuse block.Use the one under the red cap by the fuse block.Also make sure the radio and accessories are all turned off before jumping the vehicle.Watch out for the cooling fans cause they could come on at anytime.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Had to jump it, replaced power steering fuse but


You may have blown more than the power steering fuse (#1, 60A). You should check all the fuses in the underhood fuse box and you will probably find at least 1 more.

Also check the inside fuse box in the passenger side of the console.

No power getting to the ac unit on a 2006 lincoln ls.


Check all  the fuse box at the battery, and the second fuse box. Look for a blown fuse from the battery getting jumped and replace. Good luck and keep me posted.

2004 A 8L won"t start


starter wont click because there's not enough "juice" to turn it over. this isnt because of the battery as you have just replaced it. it is due to a bad alternator recharging the battery as you drive. if it were only a fuse it would be the solenoid in the starter. but if it had started after you installed the battery then its not the solenoid. solution: buy a refurbished alternator and
