Good afternoon Members

stiff and the light of steering is on.
Please help.

Power steering disabled. First check for blown strip fuses on top of the battery. Next verify that sensor plugs on the steering pump and rack are not loose. Also check if you have not lost any transmission fluid.

good Afternoon MP khotha
Thank you, I have checked the battery and indeed there was a blown fuse
with no continuity. I am going to check the sensor plugs.
