It sounds like you have more than one problem. If the steering wheel is difficult to turn it means the steering pump is not working. Check in the engine compartment and see if the fanbelt is still in place. I think it may have come off since that battery light indicates that the alternator is also not working and both the alternator and power steering pump are belt driven. Post if you have further problems.

Check the power steering fluid level and add fluid if it is low. Check to see if the steering rack is leaking. You can check it by removing the tie rod boots to see if fluid comes out. Make sure the belt is tight. If the pump works and no leaks, you may need steering rack replacement. If you do need to replace your Steering Rack, this site looks like it has cheap prices, free shipping and great reviews http://www.buyautoparts.com/power-steering-rack.html

No power steering


Hi: Check to Make sure your power Steering belt is on still.Also check the Power Steering fluid level is in your power steering canister. If its Low Fill it Up then Start your Jeep moving steering wheel back and Forth,Look to see if you have Power Steering Fluid Leaking Anywhere.Last thing i can think of is your power steering filter is plugged up.Not Very Common. So If All the Above Fails. I'd Say your Power Steering Pump Stopped Working. Hope This Has Helped you. Please let me Know how Much my Solutions Helped.Thank You. From ==d_hubbs

Have you verified that the power steering fluid is at the right level? If it isn't, you need to fill it to the proper level using specific Audi power steering fluid (it's a mineral-oil-like fluid, NOT the stuff you buy at the parts store). If you've run the reservoir dry and kept driving, it's likely you've burned out the pump and will have to replace it.

My 2001 Audi TT's steering is heavy...is it because it's a 4 wheel drive? I've had it for 4 years and haven't checked the steering wheel fluid...


The all wheel drive will not effect the steering. I'd start with the steering fluid as it may be low or beginning to break down. I assume this issue is new and has not always feelt heavy; if so this might be the pump failing or the steering rack which the pump delivers fluid too.

I hope this may help,

Very heavy steering on escort xr3i


it varied across the range, if you can see a bottle with a steering wheel icon on top then yes, however the older escorts where heavy to steer, i think that it was later on that they started adding power steering.

2004 audi a6 3.0l noisy powerstearing


check for leak in power steering hose by taking cap off the power steering resevoir and than starting car, wait 1 min, turn wheel all the way left and than all the way right. do this about 5-8 times slowly over 3 min or so. turn car off, than observe fluid in resevoir. if you see lots of bubbles after 30 seconds or so, you have a leaky hose. air in the system makes the steering pump groan and moan and vibrate. if the pump is not bad, than change the hose and clamp. just fixed mine yesterday.  also buy a quart of 11s pentosin power steering fluid (green)...

Power steering audi a6 1999


First, I'd try refilling the fluid. You can't use fluid off the shelf - Audi uses proprietary power steering fluid, available at dealerships (probably a VW dealer can give you the same thing) or online at www.germanautoparts.com or www.ecstuning.com. Try refilling it. The power steering fluid is cooled by a cooler behind the lower part of the bumper, and the fluid itself cools the power steering pump. If you're low on fluid, the pump may be heating up and in turn, heating the fluid. Fill it to the proper level and keep an eye on it for a couple of days and see if that fixes the problem.
