Customer Question

Mazda 3 S w/ 2.3 L engine
try to start car, the power steering malfunction light comes on, car shuts off. tried to start again, it starts, light comes on again and shuts off... I am thinking power steering pump, but is there an emergency shut down if the car is not in gear? The car is a couple miles away and want to get it to my garage to fix without dealing with a towtruck

also, i checked mazda recall sight, typed in my vin and there was a recall on the power steering pump, but the indication was that this was already addressed. would the pump be marked in such a way showing it was a replacement by the dealer?
