Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Please try to fill in the power steering fluid on the power steering reservoir. When filling please move the steering wheel to the left and right for the fluid to go down. This can help lighten the steering wheel. Please do check if you have power steering leakage too for this may be the cause of fluid loss.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

    If the power steering is electronic then the problem will be on the power steering itself. That will surely need replacement. But before doing so, please do check the tires if they are properly inflated.

How is your power steering level, have you checked that recently? if its full, then your power steering pump might be not working, or your rack and pinion has been damaged already.

My 2004 mazda rx8 has been steering rough. The wheel is hard to turn and not smooth. I called the dealer and he asked if I checked the steering fluid and I said I thought it was ran by an electric system....


Replace the Positive Battery Cable end. Pay attention to the white wire that has an inline fuse that connects to the battery cable end. My Rx8 was doing the same thing. I replaced the battery cable end and have had no problems since.

How do I fix the power steering n my mazda rx8 04?


My RX8 had the same problem. First, change your battery cable ends. On the Positive cable there is a white wire that powers the power steering. It probably has a bad connection at the battery post. I cut the end off my rx8 and just put a regular battery cable end on it and my problem was solved.

How do you add power steering fluid at a mazda rx8


Ignore earlier post - the RX-8 has an electric power assisted steering system - there are no hydraulics, and therefore no PAS fluid.

You either lost your belt, or the oil is gone from a broken hose.

I have a 2005 mazda rx8. After running for a few


sounds like it needs to be taken to a madza approved repairer for then to be plugged in for a dianostic annalisis, too many warning lights for one fuse.

2004 Mazda RX8 Power Steering not working and light on.


I would check your power steering fluid level first. If it's full your power steering pump is bad.
