this steering should be an electric steering system in this

there should not be a power steering pump that the belt runs

did this happen out out of the blue one day ? was it jump started or was anything done to where now this issue is happening ?

is the service steering message displayed ?

I jump started the car last night...I placed the ground on a hot line by mistake..this caused the other car to cut off...I disconnected and placed the cables in their right position...the car started...I then placed the car in a stall..no problem...a few minutes later when I started the car again...the light came on indicating alert activated...the car will start..go into gear..but the steering acts as if it has no power steering

when you jump start these it either blows the fuse for the electric steering or it spikes the electric power steering module and damages it

They just took $23 plus 5 from my acct unauthorized...I only requested the $5 charge
Chevy Mechanic: Gary, Chevy Technician replied 8 months ago

in the underhood fuse box check and see if the big 80 amp fuse called EPS fuse # 63 is good if its good and has power at it try disconnecting the battery for 5 minutes and then reconnect the cables if it still doesnt work a shop need to scan the electric steering computer to see if it was damaged

the odds are the module is bad from the jump start spike
