Power Steering


Recommended Posts

My Lexus GS300 2006 has only 13500 miles. I was backing up into my garage when the Power Steering stopped working. There was no any unusual noise or anything unusual, no oil under the car. Just steering is hard without power. Any idea what should I check before going to a shop? I shipped the car to Europe and no warranty can be claimed here.

I agree, check the fuse. Location is in the described/discussed in the owners manual.

Also, please see the thread about the 2006 2007 GS recall. The electric power steering units are being replaced on many vehicles. You may have one of the faulty ones.

Given that the car is now in Europe, hope for the fuse.
