This should be a warranty related issue. Contact the dealer.

I asked the question and should have realized that the answer would have been to start with a dealer as it is probably a warrenty item. Problem is, the truck was purchased by my deceased Dad in Texas and I am in California. But I will call a Chevy dealer to see if it still falls under a warrenty which is active. Thanks CB

Buick Skylark shaking in high gear?

Well, if you have the same problem mine has, it's the steering mechanism. The CV joints, the tie-rods, etc.... Or it could be a simpler problem like the tires being out of balance. But I would check the steering no matter what.

Why won't my 1989 gmc 1500 shift out of park with the key on?

When the steering wheel unlocks,the shifter sometimes does not..Turn on key,see that the steering wheel is unlocked,then turn the wheel back andforth till the shifter releases.If it won't release,the plastic component in the column is broken. . .Very rarely does the plastic break,it just gets worn,thus making it hard to release. . .Parking on a hill without the Ebrake is what causes this to wear. . .Pull the upper column apart and replace the plastic mechanism and you will cure the problem. . . . . .

What makes the steering wheel lock on a 2003 Hyundai and how do you unlock it?

Steering wheels are generally locked from the ignition switch. It is supposed to lock only in the OFF position. If you steering locks in any other key position, you likely have a problem with the linkage rod or cable that connects the ignition lock cylinder to the steering column. You have to take apart the dash and possibly the steering column to fix this.

One common problem is a faulty steering position sensor.

When faulty, it will cause lurching and surging in the steering - feels like loose parts.

How do you fix a 2000 Volvo s40 turn signal that works but does not stay engaged?

I have the same problem, and I just chose to live with it. You need to have access to the switch mechanism, and have a good look at it. It is most likely a worn out/broken plastic somewhere, so it may be fixable with epoxy to reconstruct the worn out thing. You need to take off the plastic covers around the steering column, and get to see it. Only then you'll know whether you can fix it, or if you need to replace something.

You can adjust the steering box some. Or possible ball joint problems. If the problem is lurches and surges in the steering (can feel like loose idler arm, loose ball joints, etc.), one common cause is a faulty steering position sensor. This $60 sensor at the base of the steering column (inside the vehicle) tells the variable assist power steering how fast you are turning the steering wheel.
