There could be a problem with the rack and pinion mechanism.

First, check the fluid level in the power steering pump.

If the level is ok, service to the rack and pinion will be necessary.

I just bought a 2002 escalade when i get on the freway with speed the whole consol shakes also the stearing wheel shakes and every lil bump you can feel it its the most unconfortable drive ever . i owned...

To check the shocks bounce the truck 3 times and let it go. It should rise past level and come back to level and stop. If it doesn't then the shock on that wheel is bad. Don't be shy when you bounce it, I use my knee on the bumper and drive it down. Do each wheel.
When you have that done, jack up 1 front wheel. Spin it and watch the tread near the ground. It should spin freely with no wobble. If it wobbles sideways at one spot you likely have a broken belt in the tire. Check both front ones for sure. After that grab the wheel top and bottom and move it in and out. There should be no movement. If there is you have a bad ball joint or possibly a wheel bearing. You'll need someone to watch to see what moves to tell the difference. Then grab the wheel at 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock and try to move it in and out. Again there should be no movement, unless the steering wheel turns. If the wheel moves and not the steering wheel, you have bad tie rod ends that need replacing. Then do the other front wheel.
It's also possible that you need a front end alignment. If you have to replace ball joints or tie rod ends, then get it aligned after you repair it.
Hope this helps.

Hi I have a 2002 escalade that makes a clunk noise when shifting into park what could that be

possibly your parking 'claw', which can get worn if you (like most people) don't stop completely after backing up and then putting it into drive.

I have a 2002 Cadillac Escalade that has a problem with the power steering only when I pull in to a driveway to turn around and back out turning my wheel to the right. I feel a pull and it's harder to turn...

It seems like a power steering gearbox issue, if it was the pump it would be doing it all the time whether the wheel was turned to the left or the right. I would have the gearbox checked for wear and replace if necessary.

One of my daytime running lights will no turn on. I replaced the bulb and it still does not work. I have an 2002 Escalade.

you have to make sure that you did not touch the tip of the new bulb with your bare skin the oils from your skin will blow the bulb out and it is also possible that you got a bad bulb make sure that all connections are are good as well as tight.

Air Compressor Motor Going Off?

What is probably going on is the air suspension has a leak so the compressor is breaking down. So it will run at odd times trying to make up for the times it can not run. What you need to do is look for a conversion kit. The conversion will stop all problems that you are having now and you will never have to worry about it again. I would recommend They have great prices and there kits are guaranteed to last the life of the car.

I hope I was of some help

Good Luck!!!
