Q: Q: I have no power steering

asked by on

I backed into parking position and turned the engine off. A few minutes later, I started the car and shifted into drive. Transmission seemed to be working normally. The wrench icon light came on and I now seem to have no power steering at all. Can you help me with this problem? Thank you.
