Having problems with your 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt ?
Power Steering Light Is Coming On Frequently - 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt
The Cobalt has recurring problems in this area. It has an electronic power steering system. Many people have had problems with this system. It will shut down and you will be without power steering. Shut off the engine and restart and it will operate normally for awhile, until the next time. I think it is a major safety hazard, but that is just my opinion. It is not under any recall for the Cobalt that I can find, but I heard that the same system was under recall on the Malibu, but I don't know if that is true or not. My nephew had the same problem and the entire steering wheel assembly must be replaced to correct the problem. The motor and control box are part of the steering column assembly. In my opinion, this is one of the poorest designed systems that they have come up with. My nephew got lucky, since the repair was covered under a warranty plan that he had purchased. You will have to take the vehicle to a dealer. This is an expensive fix. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but there it is. Sorry again for your problem and best wishes.
