Could be steering rack, but I would check the power steering fluid & pump to be sure they are working properly. Slow turns tells me the engine RPMs are down and that relates directly to any belts on the engine, i.e. power steering pump.
Take a look for any mechanical damage. The ABS is probably unrelated to the hard turns. Use an ODB-II scanner to get the codes and work from there.

Steering not straightening out at slow speed


Worn steering components which allow the steering wheels to travel too far either way,hop underneath and get a friend to move the steering while you have a look for movement between the components, or a power steering component like relief valve. Its a bit hard to know without seeing the vehicle, i suggest a steering and suspension specialist like pedders or similar.These guys can do a safety inspection only, if you want to do the work yourself. Cheers Timo.

Abs lights on constantly


jack up and check each wheel in turn for a wire coming from the body to the wheel ,they corrode or get broke with ice and snow,if they appear intact then remove each wheel in turn and make sure the toothed ring is tight and not slipping around the shaft ,if it is then put a spot weld on it to hold it too the shaft

Trac Off and ABS Lights came on, won't go off


trac control & abs light staying on in dash on pt cruiser 2001 limited
well had same problem with my pt cruiser 2001, firstly there is no need to plug in computer under the dash for pulling abs error codes,
because the problem can be the cracked abs ring on the drive shaft/cv joint,
turn your steering all the way to left and ask your colleague to see if behind the tyre the abs ring is broken or cracked,
it is circular like a bracelete with grooves, then turn the steering to the right and repeat the inpesction,
if the abs ring is cracked then look on ebay or web for pt cruiser abs ring or kia abs ring, should cost about £5-£10 each
and a garage could heat it up with gas and hammer it into the drive shaft/cv joint for you for about £20-£30,
takes about 30min to 45mins, make sure the garage dont heat the cv booth kit rubber next to the abs ring when heating it up.
i heard you can only buy abs ring for front wheels and its not available separately for rear wheels,
so for rear you may need to buy the whole part it comes on
the front abs rings are easily visible when you turn the wheel to one side, the rear ones may not be visible as i have not seen them
so if the abs ring are good then it wil probably be one of the wheel sensors, in this case you you may look for a garage who will hook up
the computer and pull the code for you, be carefull if the say there are no abs error codes it means the sensors are ok and most of it
there is no need to buy abs sensor for any wheel when there are no error codes
on pt cruiser you can pull engine error codes yourself without a computer, just do the key dance on the ignition,
turn key until dash lights come on then switch off and then again turn key until dash lights come on then swithch off,
then turn key for third time again until dash lights come on , you will see engine error codes displayed then says done,
if there are no error codes it will say done, howevere these are engine error codes only not abs error codes,
abs error codes are pulled using abs diagnostic tool
incase its a faulty wheel sensor, will cost £45 at dealer or £20 from scrap, then a garage can removed the tyre and plug out the old sensor cable
and replace it with a new one, one end is easy to plug in but the other end has to be pushed in at an angle,
its about 30min job and garage can charge £20 or so
my pt cruiser is back on the road with just one abs ring replaced and it all cost me £30 alltogether

97 Lumina dash warning lights stay on


For the security light you need to replace the ignition lock cylinder or bypass the security system. For the other two, you need to have the car scanned to see what codes are in the ecm and the abs module.

Left running lamps, cruise control, horn do not operat and air bag dash light on


Hello.Is your ABS light on?Do you hear a click noise when you turn the steering wheel?If it is,you probably have a faulty clockspring. That electronic piece controls all of those things. The clockspring is located behind the steering wheel. You have to remove the steering wheel in order to access the clockspring. MAKE SURE that the steering wheel is straight ahead before you remove it.

I had the same problem with mine and it finally got so bad that the light just stayed on all the time, you could turn the car of and on and the abs and trac light would come on. My problem ended up being the wire that goes to the abs/wheel sensor broke off the back of the sensor. You can see these wires if you take the tire off and turn the wheel hard to the right for the driver side or to the left for the passenger side. The wires go in behind the disk brake and dissapear into the hub assembelly. I simply soldered the wire back to the sensor and all is well, saved me 600 bucks.
