Car will not start, no power anywhere

The car doesn't make a sound when the key is turned. no lights come on and no tones sound( like when you open the door with the key in switch. Fuses are normal, I'm not sure about the square black one for the ignition, but I changed it with the spare and,,,,,,,,,,,,, nothing. The car is powerless

Have you checked the battery cables, acid could have wicked into the cable and there is no connection being made to the car, jump direct to the starter terminal and ground the other lead on the engine, see what happens.

Price rack pinion

the problem may be that there is a faulty control valve in the power steering part of the steering and it is allowing pump pressure past and turning the wheel. Best have a pressure test done before you spend big bucks as it may be the control valve body that needs replacement.

If all you are getting is clicks when you turn the key, the first things to look at are a faulty starter, starter solenoid, or ignition relay. Hope this helped and best wishes.
