2006 Dodge Magnum steering problem

When turning a corner, the steering wheel does not straighten itself out after the turn. It feels tight, and I have to manually straighten the steering wheel. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    2005 Magnum RT, 56K: Steering power assist feels half-there, also slow to ruturn to center, especially when its very cold out. Car does not have the handling or tire wear problems others have complained of on this vehicle though. I'm thinking bound up rack, will try flushing the fluid and report back.

My turn signals don't work something is loose in my steering column...I was turning left when I jerk the turning lever a sharp right then the signal lights stop working. It feels like something is broken...

This would be a faulty signal stat..You will have to remove steering wheel in order to replace it....I have no idea what type vehicle you have but that is how it is done ...Signals are designed to cut themselves off ..Inspect all areas and components while steering wheel is removed for any other damage...When you make a left turn after turning signal light on the light will turn itself off as you straighten up the vehicle after you turn...Thanks..

Toyota hilux 1996 how do u knw if yr stuck in 4wd an the 4wd lite aint on

try turning a tight corner you will feel a surging or tightness in steering , if you have some where safe off road in light sand or grass just for a split second gun motor to get wheels to spin and stop to see if all wheels spun or just rear or front and rear.

Front end makes popping sound when turn a corner

If you are feeling this through steering wheel more pronounced at lower speeds it is known problem with intermediate steering shaft. If your feeling it in floor boards maybe issue with engine cradle mounts.

When turning corners jeep will not centre itself you have to turn it back manually causing wandering when going down the hwy also bad vibration startind at 70 khp and up

check all front end components for wear and tightness.if this is good and it has a steering dampener on it check to make sure is not worn out or seizing could have a worn steering box that may need to be adjusted.check the front u joints for seizing up which can cause no steering return and vibration also check the rear drive shaft u joints as they also can cause a could have lost a wheel weight this can cause vibration also.

My power steering is not working right. I looked at the belt and it looks ok but when I turn the steering wheel the belt stops moving or moves slowly and makes a little noise. You can hardly turn the...

you will need to adjust the tension on your power steering unit. if the belt'stops' turning when you turn the wheel,thats a loose belt.if you are not mechanically inclined,i suggest you take it to your mechanic before it develops a steering rack problem.[costly] if you need a manual to show you,download the manual from i have done many motors,timing belts on this vehicle. they are very meticulus and tight spaces to otherwords[knuckle busters] i have the manual in my library if you like,i would be happy to e-mail to you. thank you for choosing look forward to assisting you in the future.

If the preload is too tight where the pittman arm attaches to the valve it will turn on it's own.It's been a long time but...I'm sure there is a screw very near the pittman arm on the valve assembly,loosen it a little at a time untill it steers normally.If you get it too loose the assist feels "sloppy" or "jerky"

you need to isolate this better. does the vibration occur only when the car is moving or do you feel it when sitting in park and racing the engine a little.=lock into something on the engine. do you feel it in the steering wheel= front tire bad,out of balance,bent wheel.does it seem more like you feel it in the seat like the car itself is vibraitng=look at the rear tires. check that all wheel lug nutts are tight.turning corners and acellerating at the same time the vibration could be a CV axle joint. the axles could also cause a vibration.may have to be put on a lift and see if it vibrates when running of the ground. it can be hard to find .

The steering wheel lock is on.don't know hot to turn it off

have you tried giving it a hard ****? some models (i know from experience) you put your key in, depress the brake and give the steering wheel a hard **** to unlock. hey, it won't cost to try.

Steering does not seem true seems to drift to the left .a little harder to turn right than left. dealer says seems ok to him. i still feel a slight tightness when turning right

This could be a number of things. To check you would have to disconnect the steering from both wheels with the car up on jack stands. then try turning the steering wheel and each wheel to see which if any feel stiff. Then you would know where to start looking. Also make sure the whole front end and steering system is lubed properly.

Steering gear box knock

Lube your intermediate steering shaft. It is very easy. Remove the bolt in the shaft that you can see from under the hood and push the steering shaft up toward the firewall. Where the shaft goes into itself place some grease and work it back and forth. This will last quite a while, but is easy to do again if need be. Replace the bolt and you should be go to go. The dealer will charge you $150 to do the same job. The knock goes away as soon as you test it out.
