Hello,

I have a '14 Malibu that popped up this message "Service Power Steering, Drive with Care" on the dash this weekend. Power steering seems to be completely out, very difficult to turn the steering wheel. It happened out of the blue, I haven't had any issues with the power steering before. I drove it to work, parked, and came out at the end of the day to leave. When I started the car, this message was on the dash. I tried turning the car off, waiting, and turning back on after a bit but message is still there.

I've done a little Googling and saw earlier models had a recall on them for a similiar issue, but it doesn't extend to the 2014. I also saw it could need a replacement of the steering column or other pricey issues. Are there any smaller things I can look at first that could explain the sudden appearance of this message?

Like I said, I haven't had any issues whatsoever with the steering. I don't know if any of this is pertinent info, but in the last month or so it has had an oil change, new brakes, replaced the intake solenoids, replaced oil pressure sensor, replaced the fuse for the license plate lights, and replaced a wheel bearing assembly.

Oh, also my key broke off from the key fob. When I attempted to start the car without contact with the keyfob, the car wouldn't turn on and the security lock icon came on the dash. I haven't yet replaced the key, just jerryrigged it to the fob.

Any ideas?? Thanks in advance.

I took it to the shop about this problem and said it was ready and it's still doing the same way when I put it in the shop
Please read this post and share more info. As of now, nobody knows what you're driving or even what was/is wrong with your car.

Any updates? I’m currently having the same problem.
