Get your battery charged and get it tested. The steering wheel fault is generated usually when low battery power occurs, and once restored, and car is driven a few feet,it clears itself..

I'm tempted to purchase a 2001 red Cadillac Eldorado, but from the time the car starts, the dash is showing "service steering sys". I'm unclear as to what problems could result from that...and...


I wold guess it could be the steering column or power steering or steering pump. Needless to say, all of those are quite hard to change. The only thing, what is it talking about? It may be low on steering fluid or the sensor that brings that light on may be defective. The only way to know for sure is checking it out yourself. Make sure you see no leaking fluid. Make sure it is not making loud noises when you turn the wheel or a grinding noise.

52 grinding noise from under car . not sure if it


Hi, When a grinding noise is detected first locate the area of the car it is being generated from. Most grinding noises will be being generated while driving, if you are having a hard time detecting the location of the grinding sound, have a helper ride along in the rear seat to give a new perspective on the origin of the grinding noise. A grinding noise can be generated by many things from worn out brake pads to axle bearing failure. Once a grinding sound has been detected action must be prompt. Grinding in most cases is telling you something has failed or is failing. It can be as a result of worn out brake pads or shoes, check your engine and transmission mount, check for axle bearing failure, check your power steering system for leak...
Take care
