ok so I have a 06 Cobalt SS/SC and my power steering started to go out last week. Heres what I've been able to figure out so far after reading past posts on this issue

-Power steering only goes out when driving straight and will come back on after turning the car off and then turning it back on
-There is a loud click coming from the PSCM right before it goes out
-All fuses are in tack
-The wire in the top left part of the fuse box has a good connection
-All connections look good and are getting full voltage
-Power steering does NOT go out when I wiggle any of the connections on the PSCM
-The battery and alternator are good

Here is one finding that stands out though: when I go to test the voltage of the red/black wire coming from the PSCM to the motor w/ a multimeter the PSCM does the click as soon as I touch it with the probe and then of course I lose power steering. This is the only way I can get the power steering to go out when I am parked.

The only thing I can conclude from this is that there is a bad ground. Any thoughts on this? Wiring diagrams would be greatly appreciated too.
