when the pressure gets high in the power steering system, its harder to turn the pump. when the pump is hard to turn it slows the engine rpms, acting a little like a brake on the engine. this sensor tells the computer how much pressure there is in the system and increases the idle to compensate for it.

To remove a steering wheel, a person will need a steering wheel puller from an auto part store, from there after the airbag is removed, place the tool over the steering wheel and follow its directions. It will pull the steering wheel off by applying pressure to the middle and pulling everything else up.
