Clean them and see.
i wish there was an answer here. this just has happened to me on my 2001 dodge neon. while i was driving the battery light flicked on and at the same time my power steering locked making it difficult to turn... i dont know what to do im still researching for answers.
Steering fluid leak.
If the steering wheel is loose while driving the steering rack may be going bad. A bad steering rack leads to a lot of play on the actual wheel.
A car's steering wheel will vibrate when driving if the car's alignment needs to be adjusted.
Did you check the drive belt to see if it broke?
Many things can cause the steering wheel to shake when you are driving. However, the most common cause of steering wheel shaking is a bent wheel.
A steering wheel that is padded with leather for comforment when driving
No. Steering is just one element of driving, but there are a lot more, such as controlling the speed and being vigilant as you drive.
I had a 1999 Grand AM same thing happened to me. A while after that i was driving and the radio lost power, then the power steering. I had the alternator and battey replaced and that fixed the problem.
probably going to lose your steering
you may need more power steering fluid.
Because its used for primarily turns and it requires power, so on long straight aways it cuts off to save battery life.
water will splash on the belts [power steering, alternator, etc.], causing them to slip, as if greasy, not turning the pulleys. get new belts.
The serpentine belt may have broken. Stop driving it and get that fixed. If you continue to drive it that way you can do severe damage to the engine.
A Case 200 steering wheel, is the model of steering wheel which attaches to a model Case 220 driving tractor.
Power steering fluid helps your steering wheel turn easily. If you have dirty power steering fluid, it may be hard to turn your steering wheel while driving.
check your timing belt
check the crank shaft actuator?
One of the components that attach to serpentine belt have failed . Your battery light came on because alternator was not turning to generate engine, and your steering wheel was stiff because power steering pump pulley was not being turned (both driven by serpentine belt).
Your battery is weak, or your your alternator is not charging battery.
Possibly the belt driving the power steering pump is worn or loose, and when wet, slips, causing the steering to get stiff.
Sounds like you've had a belt brake! check your engine bay
Problem with the SRS. Seek professional help. Not a DIY repair.
