Hey Guys, I have a 2005 Chev 1500 Work Truck model, 4.8L v8, auto, 4x4, tow package.
I tried a search on here for my issue, but found only people posting the same issue as me and no one actually posted back that something fixed the issue (that I could find)
My power steering starts failing when my truck is warm, the longer it runs, the less the power steering works. It gets to the point in the summer that it's basically like manual steering and I have to crank the wheel so hard that my steering wheel starts to get a bunch of play in it.
Someone said that it could be the power steering sensor, but I just don't know why it would start working fine when I start up the truck and get worse as I drive more?
Has anyone had this problem and has found the cause for it? The pump whines when it's struggling too, it gets louder/worse when the wheel is harder to turn, but it's not a bad sound, just a labored power steering pump thats making up for something not working.
Any help is awesome
Last week i decided to level my 2014 4wd silverado. in the process of removing the plugs from the eps i broke the upper most plug and now its loose. I have been trying to find where i can buy a replacement but have had no luck. where could i buy one? or what would be the proper name for the plug so i can do a better job when trying to explain to people what im looking for. thanks in advance.
Everytime i turn on my truck i get a message saying ,"steering assist reduced drive with care"
I took it to the dealer but they didnt want to work on it sence its lifted and all of the warranty is voided. Sounds like bs to me?? Any one with similar issue ?!?!? Its a 2017 silverado z71

Hey all, I will start from the beginning here. Purchased my new 2017 Sierra Elevation Edition in February 2017. Drove it off the lot with 6 miles on it. This is my first new vehicle so its been a little discerning to me that this has more issues than any used car I have owned before.
A few weeks after owning the truck, my microphone stopped working for my phone calls and the onstar stopped working all together. My OnStar module died and they replaced it with a new one. About 5 thousand miles later, my trucks radio screen started randomly going black, turning off all sound, then coming back on again. It would resume where it last was, phone call still intact or radio still on the right station. This went on for about 2 weeks then my dash lit up and chimed at me, the radio turned off like it does I get a warning of a Power Steering Failure. I call my local shop and get it in there right away. The drive in, the power steering worked just fine.
They said the reading came back as High Voltage, they updated the computer and sent me on my way. Fast Forward to 3 weeks later, my truck starts doing the radio off again but this time the dash lights all shut off too. I can't be sure but it seems to do it when its wet outside. It did not have problems after I was in the shop but it was also dry outside. I also noticed when this happens the voltmeter spikes high.
I am dropping my truck off again the Tuesday after Christmas. Does anyone have experience with this before? The shop told me last time they have never seen this before.
I've been noticing a whining noise coming out of the front-left side of my truck over the last few days. It's been colder lately, around -6°C or so. It sounds identical to a power steering pump that's low on fluid or on it's way out. However, the truck has electronic power steering and does not use fluid. Has anyone here noticed a whining type of sound that increases with engine RPM and figured out what's going on? It somewhat comes and goes, but generally is very noticeable all the time. Would rather figure it out before whatever is causing the sound inevitably gives out or falls apart.
