Hello I will help you with your question,
The sensor is to let the computer know you are at full lock and the computer ups the idle speed a little so the engine is not bogged down.
Odd that this would happen all of a sudden, the belt is tight on the pump? Really tight?
No oil on the belt?
It would be a failing pump if the circulation is good but as I say it is odd for it to happen all at once.
With it running can you see circulation in the reservoir?
I am unable to speak on the phone, we can continue here if you wish
Ok, a shop can put a pressure gauge on it and check the output of the pump but it is probably just the pump and the diagnostic charge would be as much as the cost of the pump.
If you raise the front end the wheels turn smooth and easy side to side with the engine off?
