Hi,
Your Malibu has Electronic assist steering.
Some malfunction occurred when the light came on.
May have been a loose connection. You will be able to steer the car if the malfunction re-appears. It will steer hard standing still but as you move it will get easier.
Best to take it to a shop and see if there are any codes stored to help locate the original power steering light malfunction.

this system can be tested for codes, I would suggest you have the dealer do this test, all the parts are very expensive so guessing is not a good idea. most probale cause is a wheel motion sensor on the steering column.

My 2006 Malibu steering wheel is going bad.


The power steering is electric on that car. It has a electric motor on the column, and a control module. There are several causes that could be the problem. You need to have it scanned to get a better idea of what to do. If you can give me the codes you get then I will be glad to advise you on what's best. Good Luck

The power steering light is on in my 2007 Pontiac G5 Coupe


  • You have Electric Power Steering (EPS) not the traditional power steering pump. So there is no place to put power steering fluid in your vehicle.

  • Hope this helps.
