more than likely it is just low on power steering fluid. system might have air in it now. so after fill power steering unit to proper level driver the car and check fluid level again. and add more if needed . I believe car should have motor running for when checking fluid, same as transmission.
The switch or resistors at the blower motor.( resistors are usually found next to blower motor)
Ther relay is the last place you check for resistance. However, before doing any kind of electrical testing or repair POINT THE WHEELS STRAIGHT AHEAD. DISCONNECT THE NEGATIVE BATTERY TERMINAL. WAITE AT LEAST 2 MINUTES FOR BACK UP POWER SUPPLY TO BE DEPLEATED..THEN DISCONNECT THE YELLOWAIR BAG CONNECTOR LOCATED UNDER THE STEERING COLUMN NEAR THECOMBO SWITCH AND BEHIND THE GLOVE BOX FOR THE PASSENGER SIDE AIR BAG. BE CAREFUL AND GOOD LUCK
Check your Power Steering Fluid. I would suspect its low, if so, you have a leak and the most common thing to leak is the High Pressure Hose. Have that looked at ASAP, you dont want to destroy the PS Pump.
It could be any thing from the alternator to the Power steering pump. The power steering pump feeds the hydro boost unit. It is unlikely the hydroboost is causing the noise. I recomend you take it to the dealer and have them perform the proper diagnostics as they will have the proper pressure gauges and equipment needed to perform the tests.
When you checked the power steering fluid level were there any indications of excessive foaming? There are three things that would cause a whining noise from the power steering. 1- low fluid (you checked that so that is not the culprit), 2- loose steering drive belt (you should not be able to press down on the belt more that about one inch between the steering pump pulley and the crankshaft pulley), 3- power steering pump bearing worn out.
check your power steering fluid and pump, also these units have a problem with the rack and pinion unit, but start at the power steering fluid resovior and look for leaks, low fluid will cause the pump to starve for fluid cause irrepairable damage and noise as well... please rate my help, thanks
The first thing to check would be to make sure the power steering reservoir is not running near empty, locate the filler cap for the power steering pump it should be marked and then add the appropriate amount making sure you don't over fill, that may make the sound go away if not we must move on to the next possibility, by the way if the noise gets louder when you turn the steering wheel it is most likely the power steering pump or fluid level is low.
Hello, from the sounds of it your power steering pump is going bad. Two things to check is one, pull off the cap and smell the fluid to see if it smells burnt. If it does you will need to change the power steering pump. Another thing to check is to make sure the belt is good and snug that runs the pump, the noice could be the belt slipping. You may need to tighten it or change it depending on how it looks. I'd check the belt first as that is the cheaper fix.
