check your power steering fluid and make sure it is topped off, otherwise you may have a faulty pump or rack.

after further research for this vehicle, it appears that you may have a faulty EPS.(electronic power steering control module. now just like diagnostic trouble codes there is a scan tool to scan the EPS for trouble codes, I will have to be scanned in order to find out the problem, I included a diagram that will show you exactly where it is located, and if you wanted to inspect it for power continuity there is a 1 volt refferencegraphic
