Yes, I couldn't even turn my wheels.I also had other lights that came on and they all reset some times when i cut the car off. I think the car light with a lock came on and I think it was a engine light. I think if you are having any electronic problem then that could be whats wrong with your car. I had to pay $86 to fix it I still want believe my car is fix even though i think it is.

When I had my problems with the steering light coming on, they claimed they couldn't find anything. Then they said that I had a low fuse or something and that I must have had the car jumped. I never had any reason to jump my car. Anyway to make a long story short, after I raised cane about how dangerous it is to drive this car on the freeway during peak hours, they called me in and fixed it. It would have cost me $450 but got it done free. I still don't feel safe in it. I did file a claim with the Dept of Public Safety and was told there were not enough complaints to make a recall.

Same thing happen to me. I never felt safe and never drove my car out of town. I'm still scared its not fixed because every time I took it they either said it was fixed or couldn't find anything wrong. I told one car shop to keep it until it messed up and they kept it for 18 day and didn't have a problem with it. I took my car to 4 different dealers to be fix 6 or 7 times only the last dealer fixed it right away.

I haven't seen the power steering light any more, but it seems to want to surge now. I don't drive mine out of town either and it sounds like a tin can now.
