Try changing the power steering fluid

That gets done every 3 years or 30,000 miles,
at the same time as the trans fluid

Most likely the steering rack is worn

What happens if the drive belt breaks

if a drive belt breaks, the debris can interfere with other engine components and do additional damage. rule of thumb belt life is 6yrs or 60000 miles. the belts operate critical engine systems ( alt, water pump, power steering pump) not something to short cut on. belts are noisey when cold due to additional load from battery use when starting or cold fuuids. have belts and tensioners checked for wear and correct operation

Hi, i have a grand cherokee 5,7 from 2006. The lights in the instrument panel, and the exterior lights keep flashing when the engine in turned on. I cannot adjust the lights in the instument panel neither....

I have a similar problem - every once in a while all of my dash lights flash on like the car is trying to conk out/stall (I have a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee) - the car has no loss of power and runs fine, just all of the dashboard lights and warnings come on like its going to stall. Happens on dry days, wet days, cold days, warm days - at least 3 times a month. trouble is, because its intermittent no one can find the problem.

My 1995 Diamanter will not start

Hi Guys. I took the car to the auto electrician. He says he checked everything and even had the computer tested. I am running a CCA600 battery which he said was putting out 11.6 volts which is not enough to engage the computer. He charged the battery and the car started. That was 3 weeks ago but now, after 3 days of wet weather it again will not fire. I connected the jump start to it but it still will not fire. The battery is showing full charge so I guess its electrical and I need to do some of these other checks.

2003 Santa Fe starts and then the motor dies (3-4 seconds). Car was not driven for about 8 cold and wet days. Checked oil - is very low, added a quart that I had, no immediate improvement. Battery seems...

I don't think so. It is unlikely that the oil being low caused this condition. That will damage the engine and cause it to lock up but only after it overheats from no lubrication. Something else is killing your motor. A starter kill switch or faulty fuel pump, something along those lines. My best guess based on what is posted is something electrical. Check the ignition and run relays in the power distribution box under the hood for being wet or shorted. After so many wet days you'll want to check your spark plug wires and connections to the coil pack for moisture and if there is any dry them out.

So it rained here all day yesterday. I drove through a puddle that I didn't see as a threat. Immediately after the power steering went out, battery light came on and van overheated. People are telling me...


It sounds strange but, there is a single belt that turns most of those things. When the belt gets wet it no longer has the ability to turn the pullys. Sometimes they slip off all together and that it what this sounds like. Raise the hook, and with a flashlight look at the passenger side of the engine. See if you find a belt hanging down there. If not, have some one start the van and make sure everything is turning. If it is, then it will only be a matter of time before things warm up, dry off, and work again.

Best of luck

Lost all power/electrical when went to restart car, battery fine

I had an old Accord which occasionally wouldn't crank or start, took out the Main Electrics Relay situated up under the dash near the steering wheel, resoldered all the solder joints on started like a rocketship on steroids. Seems the solder joints "evaporate" and "dry out", fresh solder conducts full power.

Power steering pump whines at first start up of the day.

This is common with many cars due to the hydraulic fluid being cold and causing the pump to moan/whine for a short time as it's working harder to move the fluid as it's thicker until it gets a little heat into it; this will be more pronounced on a very cold or freezing day. Any noise when the pump has warmed up is another issue entirely.
