Hi, my name is ***** ***** I am going to try to help

What did you change in the power steering system? Was it just the pump?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Pump power steering and I bought it from the dealer
Expert:  Joshua Haynes replied 1 year ago.
ok, thanks. And as far as the noise, I assume it is the loud groaning noise that is characteristic of power steering pump noise. Does this noise sound any different at all with the new pump or is it exactly the same?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I have some many problems on this car
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The radio is not working till I put on my hitter on so hot
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
If I turn my AC on it make some loud noise too to many problems since I bought this car
Expert:  Joshua Haynes replied 1 year ago.
I have run into this before. Sometimes a faulty idler pulley can make the exact same noise as power steering and can fool you into thinking that the pump is the problem. You should be able to easily identify which pulley is causing the trouble by removing the belt and spinning each pulley by hand to feel for roughness or even hear a noise. Another trick that you can use without removing the belt at first would be to use a long screw driver to touch the bolts holding on the pulleys and hold it to your ear to see which one is screaming. This should help you to decide which one it is.

Please can you tell me what is going with the radio is not coming up till I put the hitter on
Expert:  Joshua Haynes replied 1 year ago.
What do you mean when you turn the heater on...does it not work if the a/c is on in stead of the heat?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
When I start my car the radio we not work, if my car is cold the radio we not work it only work when the heater is on for like 20 mins and we I of my car it will not come up again till I put the heat the car for like 20mins
Expert:  Joshua Haynes replied 1 year ago.
I would suspect this problem to be related to a poor connection somewhere inside the dash; behind the radio perhaps. But, I think it would have to be tested in person.
Expert:  Joshua Haynes replied 1 year ago.
Are you planning on testing the pulleys today?
