Q: Steering wheel stopped working it did not get stiff at all

asked by on August 22, 2017

My steering went out all of a sudden. The steering wheel did not get stiff at all. I put it in reverse gave it gas stopped and then then steering came back.

You did not mention the year, make and model of the vehicle. If you have electrical steering then you will need to test the computer system for codes and see if codes are stored. Then diagnose it from there.
