2010 ford fusion hyprid power steering went out


Power Steering - Hybrid The electric power assist steering system consists of:
  • power steering control module
  • electric motor
  • torque sensor
  • rack-and-pinion steering gear
The electric power steering system provides power steering assist to the driver by replacing the conventional hydraulic valve system with an electric motor coupled to the steering gear. The motor is controlled by an electronic control unit that senses the steering effort through the use of a torque sensor mounted between the steering column shaft and the steering gear. Steering assist is provided in proportion to the steering input effort and vehicle speed.

your best bet would be to have the ford dealer check it out !

Power steering problem is hard and dont find the power steering pomp


These vehicles have electric power steering. There is an electric motor under the steering column that provides the power steering assist. GM also had a special policy coverage on this motor as it has been notorious for causing the problems you are describing. Read on:

Some customers of 2004-2007 model year Saturn ION vehicles, equipped with electric power steering, may experience a sudden loss of power steering assist, which could occur at any time while driving the vehicle. If the power steering assist is lost, a chime will be heard and the Message Center will display a "PWR STR" warning message. The vehicle can still be steered in a safe manner but will require greater driver effort at low vehicle speeds or when stopped. Typically, the next time the vehicle is started, the power steering assist will return and the "PWR STR" message would no longer be displayed..................
This special coverage covers the condition described above for a period of 10 years or 100,000 miles (160,000 km), whichever occurs first, from the date the vehicle was originally placed in service, regardless of ownership.
Retailers are to replace the power steering motor. The repairs will be made at no charge to the customer.

After replacing power steering pump, steering still feels hard. rack and pinion was replaced less than 3k miles. car has been sitting for several months.


i've had a similar issue with a 99 M3. really stiff steering. i thought i was getting old and weak.

I was chasing another problem when i discovered a solution for my stiff steering issue.

Most of these vehicles have a valve that helps control steering pump fluid flow at various speeds.

i.e at higher speed you want stiffer steering. at low speeds easier steering. however, how does the pump known your going faster?

Note: all bmw steering hoses leak...

As your car ages, so do electrical contacts, especially in harser climates.

I used eletrical contact cleaner and di-electric grease to solve an intermittemt ASC problem.

This also cleared up the steering issue.

get some electrical contact cleaner and some di-electric grease. pop your hood and clean as many electrical connections as you can and apply a little di-electric grease after the contact cleaner drys.
even do the dme.

Note: I have replaced the power steering rack twice before i discovered this fix. You may also fix some other issues in the meantime.

electrical contacts may be the biggest problem source for most newer vehocles since they tie everything together.

Power steering


bad electrical signal to the pump. pumps thinks its going fast. the valve that controls the fluid flow to make steeering stiffer at higher speeds is confused.

use electrical contact cleaner and d-electric grease to fix contact problems.
pop the hood and cleans as many connections as possible, let dry and apply a small amount of di-electric grease to those connections, then re-connect the plugs. even do the dme connections to the main wiring harness.

this will solve many electrical contact problems seen in older cars.

Where do you add power steering fluid?


The HHR does not use power steering fluid. The power steering is strictly an electric motor attached to the steering column under the dash. If you are having problems, you may need to have the motor replaced.

However, before you do, check the following fuses:

Underhood fuse #1 - 60A
Inside console fuse #19 - 2A

Either with kill the steering and may have been blown if you (or an uninformed mechanic) have jumped the car incorrectly.
