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.

2005 Saturn Ion 2 electric power steering


The motor an EPS - electric power steering module have to be replaced together . The module needs to be programmed , Dealer ! Could be a steering angle sensor also . Could have DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's stored .
The electric power steering (EPS) system reduces the amount of effort needed to steer the vehicle. The system uses the body control module (BCM), power steering control module (PSCM), torque sensor, discrete battery voltage supply circuit, EPS motor, serial data bus, and the instrument panel cluster (IPC) message center to perform the system functions. The PSCM, torque sensor, not the EPS motor are serviced separately from each other or from the steering column. Any EPS components diagnosed to be malfunctioning requires replacement of the steering column assembly, also known as the EPS assembly.
Can set a number of code's
DTC C0000
DTC C0475
DTC C0476
DTC C0545
DTC C0847
DTC C0848
DTC C0896
DTC C0899
DTC C0900

Your best bet , let a qualified repair shop that has the diagnostic skill's to find the problem !

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.
