Got out of car to open gate....wheel was turned all the way to left....when I got back in & attempted to turn steering wheel right....I thought it was turned all the way to the right.... felt locked up....couldn't move it.
As I backed up very slowly, it was ok.
PS pump issue??

How many issues have you had with your car already? Is it a Lemon?

lol, my PS pump failed on me not too long ago. I thought it might have been my kenne bell that did the damaged but I'm pretty sure it was just a bad pump.

The dealer took care of it even with the blower on, so I won't ***** about it too much.

Just take it in, get a new pump, end of story

I have to agree there. No problems so far but I only 209 miles on it. I'll be putting another 160 on it today.

Did you check your power steering fluid? It could be low.

This same thing happened to my wife's Caravan. Filled the fluid to the top and in about 10 miles of driving the whine disappeared.

Is the 2011 HD Power Steering pump a direct swap for the pre 2011s? It would be nice to get the reservoir away from the intake.
