Hello. If there is a voltage issue going on within the vehicle, then that can affect the function of the power steering. I would usually start by making sure that the engine drive belt is intact and tight. If it is then the battery and alternator should be load tested and the connections at the battery cables should be checked. All of these areas can cause a steering issue. If those are fine, then the steering gear may be failing.
