    It has been happening for several months and getting progressivelt worse. Cannon said to remove the batterisa and let it sit. that seemed to work for a while, but keeps getting worse. It is a digital camera.

    so is this a digital camera or a PS2 device?

    hmm..well..based on that, seems that your controls are getting contaminated by a leaky battery(low probability) or simply the outside moisture and air will gunk them up, not to mention grease and oil and dirt from handling.

    not without taking the entire camera apart, cleaning each and every part, and re assembling it.

You possibly have corrosion or contamination built up in the lever pivot point. Disconnect the cable and try lever - if it is stiff or difficult to move, you'll need to take the handle off, clean pivot and contact points with a SOFT wire brush ( brass brush recommended) lube it with white lithium grease and re-install. check for freedom of movement before re-installing cable. If it moves ok but cable is stiff, you'll want to next lube the cable with a liquid spray lube - sometimes the new cables are not properly lubed!!

On the steering rack is a sensor that increases the idle when power steering is turned ?? maybe?? but without a play i couldnt tell you .Sorry but a lot of these questions are difficult enough for a general bodge cowboy like myself who works on anythng from a lawn mower to a catapilar bulldozer,and to know exactly from a description is like asking which if any god is real.

My brakes randomly lock up on my 2004 chevorlet impala

If your brakes were "locking up" as you describe, it would be interesting to see. Brakes rarely self-apply. Lockup may occur after you apply the brakes as they may stick and won't release, but to have them just apply while driving is almost impossible. What you are describing sounds more to me like a massive vacuum leak. What this will do is reduce intake vacuum and steal all the power from the engine, and the brake pedal will go stiff as a result of the power brake booster losing its vacuum assist. You need to find the source of the vacuum leak and correct it.
