My power steering on my 87 Maxima just went out this morning. It made a loud screeching noise and actually caused the car to shut down. Had to try 5 times to get car to turn back on (which is unusual). The power steering fluid was really low so I put in power steering fluid. The car runs fine...except I don't have power steering...no screeching, no whining, no abonormal noise - it's just suddenly as if the car never had power steering. Any thoughts?

Keys get stuck in ignition and car shows no sign of power. Then out of nowhere the lights will come on. Jumped it once and it worked after the keys were able to turn. The next morning after car ran for an hour after the night before's jump the car showed no signs of power. Is this just a battery problem? If so then why in the middle of the day all of a sudden the lights would come on and the car power up on it's own.

Power off my car stopped running suddenly for no reason. i turned on the engine and all the power in the car went off. i jumped it. it worked again just fine for a week. then turned off completely again. tried jumping it again. it didnt work. towed it home and today before i tried changing the battery, the car powered on fully without and runs fine.

2002 Saturn sl2 power locks were fluttering, clicking, opening on their own when the car is started. I was reduced to opening the car using the keys. For few days car is parked and untouched, yesterday I found the car doors all open and car will not start. Did the power door relay (which one, the lock or the unlock relay? there are 2 different relays!) cause the car battery to get drained? How to check?

Power loss 1999 Honda Accord V6. My car will shut down while driving, usually when accelerating from a near stop. I lose power steering and all indicator lights come on. I put it in park and it immediately starts up like there was no problem. It does this sporadically, with no warning. The car does not sputter, it just loses all power. I changed the idle control sensor, but that did not solve the problem. The car is in otherwise excellent condition with a fantastic maintenance record. I use

I have a 2002 Mercury Cougar and when I'm driving the battery light will randomly flicker on and off and then the car will start to lose all power.

My 2000 dodge stratus 2.4 DOHC won't start? I was driving on the highway and for a good 3 miles I felt three mini-misfires going off in my engine.

When I tried to restart my car it started up, but I was unable to accelerate or use the power steering; on the dash the red light with the oil came up. I checked both dip sticks and they were fine.

We discovered the automatic transmission fluid runs dry. We have topped it up but now the car has lost power. When we start the car, the reverse gear has a lot of power but no power when going forward..The gear shift indicator light does not come on . Is it something wrong with the crutch or does the car needs adjustment after we topped up the fluid. Thanks.

My 2008 Ford Mustang started having problems a couple of days ago. The radio would come on and off, and at the same time the power in the car (lights, windshield wipers, power locks, power windows) would come and go.
