    Have you checked the connectors going into the power steering pump - disconnect them, clean them and reconnect - Also is your alternator ok that a classic sign of alternator problem

    Did u check next to battery, top left corner its covered by lid on top. Opened by front upwards, there will be most likely only one bolted down on 2 bolts, have them both bolted down.

    It cured the problem a friend and father in law's car that i sorted. Fluid level check as well. The cap will have level dip attached.
