Customer Question
Power steering become stiff...

Power steering become stiff on low speed turns and steering light alarm comes on.

Mechanic's Assistant: When was the fluid last checked? Have you heard any whining noises while turning the wheel?

No noises, steering gear liquid flash helps for about 2 month and then it comes again

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Nissan?

2015 Murano platinum

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Murano yourself? What have you tried so far?

I left a car in the dealership for inspection but I think they will not duplicate the problem to fix. If assist is electric what component could cause a problem?

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

First time it happened without getting the warning light on, then it comes to the same problem but with the light on

Have you tried to see if this occurs in neutral as well, and if it does does the reving the engine help?

If it comes to replacement what will come first?
Nissan Mechanic: Chris(aka-Moose), Nissan Technician replied 8 months ago

I am not up to enough information yet to determine what parts should be replaced. Can you respond to my prior info request?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Didn’t try in neutral. On parking when the engine starts and warning light comes on shutting down the engine and re-start will help
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I am not calling and if you aren’t familiar with the problem return the money
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I want my money back

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
