Are you sure you are not low on gas? sounds to me like you have a small amount of gas in the tank and when you turn right the gas in the tank is moving away from the gas pump which causes the motor to die..

Problems power steering

Sounds like a hard-to-find electrical short. Look under the car to see if any wires are near the steering linkages. Then turn the wheel and look under again (never get under a running car - make sure it is off and in Park with e-brake set).

I think you have air in your PS fluid. Check the level, turn the wheels all the way left, and right check again - is it any lower? Top it off and repeat until you are not adding any more fluid.

My 2002 volvo s60 non turbo has been dying when i take a right sharp curve or when I turn my wheel to the right to turn into a parking place. any ideas. the recent incident I was coming down a mountain...

The first thing i would check with this kind of problem is the ignition switch if it's mounted in the steering column. There may be a wire on it that has an OK connection when the steering wheel is pointed straight but turning the wheel to the right stresses something a little and cuts power to an important leg of the switch.

Recode steering angle sensor

For recode the steering angle sensor you must connect a diagnosis scantool to the data link connector of the car in order to access the ESP ECU (Electronic Control Unit), in other words programm again the steering angle sensor in the ESP ECU. Select the steering angle sensor programming (learning) menu, and follow the steps: put steering wheel in straight direction, then turn steering wheel to the left direction less 15 degrees, then to the right direction less 15 degrees, put steering wheel in straight direction again until the programming was done. Then the ESP light will turns OFF.

95 ford windstar dies when i turn the steering wheel hard

windstar has a pressure switch on the pressuer line to the rack and pinion, squeeze the plug and pull up to disconect it and see if it happens again. you might have a short in one of these wires or the switch ... to reach the switch it is mounted on top of the power steering rack so reach down behind the motor on the driver side or crawl under and reach up on driver side

Auto won't start

curious, i've seen this before but not whith this kind of car. if you park with the steering wheel turned to one side or the other, when you shut the car off, the power steering also shuts off. this could be putting pressure on the steering wheel when it locks off. next time, before turning off the motor, aim the wheels straight ahead first. be sure the steering wheel is straight on before you turn the engine off. this time, when you turn the motor off, the power steering will not be a factor. hopefully it eliminate the problem.
