Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Depending on what vehicle and system you have you may still have a bad pump but there could also be an issue with the steering rack, a restriction in the system, or if you have electric power steering then there may be an electrical issue preventing the pump from running. The only vehicle information posted with the question was the model year.

Do you have the VIN?
