Question about 2003 Chevrolet Suburban 1500

1 Answer

When the truck is going at normal speeds, the steering is fine but when you slow down to turn right or left it binds up real bad. Ive also tried putting the truck in nuetral and reving the engine to increase pump pressure, but the steering remained bound. When traveling in reverse, the steeing is fine, but again when shifted into drive and moving foward (trying to straighten out from backing out of the drive way) the steering becomes very difficult, much like when yo loose your serpentine belt.

It sounds like the problem is in the power sterring pump.

Turn whhel real sharp on 2005 ford explorer left rear wheel wants to lockundefined


If you have four wheel drive, turning the wheels sharply at a slow speed when in 4X4 mode can result in a wheel binding. The other possibilities are low lubricant in the rear differential, wrong lubricant in the rear differential if it has been replaced, or a bad differential.

When i shift it into park and turn the engine off and then proceed to pull the key out it wont relaese.


your ignition switch may be going bad. suggest this, turn key to off position,wiggle sterring wheel while removing your key. this won't last long though. you can try not stressing the steering by not parking on a hill,or parking the car where the steerings going to be in a [bind] or it may be only a ignition switch going bad,you can try this 1st though,while you're attempting to turn your key on, turn your steering wheel to right and left gently,if this works,your ignition switch is worn.if you continue to park the car in a bind,[on a hill] [up or down] it will get worse. and you will have to replace the ignition switch.

Front end wobble at higher speed nothing wrong with tierods everything seems tight jacked it up bushings bearings fine does not push or pull under 90 km and lower just out of the blue it will start to...


When a steering stabilizer goes bad, it will produce the exact wobble you have described. The one where you NEED to slow down to stop it, and then its fine. Its called "Death Wobble" in the car/truck enthusiast world.

Have you checked that? Typically called a steering stabilizer / steering dampener.

Good luck!

My 99 subaru legacy 2.5 feels like its going to stall when im turning at slow speeds like about to park.


if you are turning the wheel all the way until it stops then you are putting the steering pump in a bind cuasing the engine to slow down more causing the engine to stall ,,, recommend you turn the steering wheel all the way you are going until the wheel stops and then back the other way a little bit to stop this binding,, shoulsd stop your problem

i have ran into 2 issues in these vehicles---if it binds while sitting still also, check the steering shaft, i have found the u-joints in the shaft tighten up and binds dangerously tight---if they are free, sounds like you may have a steering box issue or restriction in a line---hope this was helpful!!

Flasher is screwed up


This sounds like a bad flasher unit. Simply by replacing this unit should fix this problem. Usually they are located on the top of the steering wheel beneath the trim. You have to disassemble the trim around the steering column.

VW touareg steering judder low speed left/right turn


Sounds like you have air in your steering system. I would start by looking for any leaks on your steering system like hose to fitting crimps, steering pump, etc. Check your steering fluid level to make sure it is full and also look for bubbles on the dip stick. If everything looks good, start the vehicle and turn the wheels all of the way to the left and then to the right. Do this while the vehicle is in park and repeat at least 5 times. This will work out any air in your steering system. If the problem persists then the power steering pump may need to be replaced.
