Most likely its the power steering control module. I posted a lengthy reply on another thread someplace about this. Ive replaced alot of modules for this reason.

This happened to me one random night pulling out of the driveway... steering became hard as hell... I just shut down the car and restarted it and everything was fine... haven't had it happen since. No clue what caused it but glad it hasn't re-occured

I dont remember off hand the price of the module. I know the module/motor comes as an assembly, or it used to. Its quite easy to replace, problem is it will need to be calibrated once installed. Of course calibration will need to be done at a dealer, and I dont recommend driving it after repalcing the motor/module without calibrating it.

I finally got the problem fixed at my local Chevy Dealership, it ended up being $580.00 they had to replace the electronic motor and the module. it sucks but there is absolutely no alternative.

My brother has a 2006 Cobalt SS (non SC'd version) and his is doing the exact same thing. It started off as once in awhile, now it's doing it all the time. I drove his car today and I was astonished at how hard it is to turn the wheel. Why GM figured it'd be best to use "electronic power steering" is beyond me. Another stupid mistake on GM's behalf. Hydraulic PS worked for decades and they decide to outsource and use a cheap electronic motor. Makes me sick.

Our entire family has bought GM vehicles for decades and now we're sick and tired of them. Between this problem, my Dad's 08 Silverado that squeaks and rattles more than any car I've ever been in, the 08 Impala SS that gets about 12 MPG city if we're lucky, that's it. We're done with GM


My Dad wants to sell this 06 Cobalt ASAP, so I found this site in hopes of getting the problem fixed. I've been searching and searching online and have heard mixed numbers as far as cost, anywhere from the $580 mentioned here up to $2,000

I want to avoid the dealership (or stealership as I call them) as much as possible, their exorbitant prices are enough to make me irate.

The above issues occur quite often. So a few precautions would help us to overcome these issues.
