          A:

          Hi Gerry, my answer to your question on the BWD Power Steering Pressure Switch -part# PS104 is that there may be an air lock on your power steering reservoir. Take the cover off the power steering reservoir. Have a helper start the truck. Have helper turn the wheel all the way to the right and hold it there for just a second or two. Have helper turn wheels all the way to the left; hold it there for a second or two. Add fluid as necessary. Repeat until you do not see any more air being ejected out of the power steering reservoir. Refill power steering fluid and recap.

      • Q:

        can these switches leak steering fluid?
        Asked on 8/9/2013 by meat from ormond beach fl

        • CUSTOMER CARE

          A:

          The power steering fluid leak might not be due to the power steering pressure switch since the cause may be the worn out hose or gasket. I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem. For any further assistance, please feel free to call us at: 1-877-238-2623 or visit the nearest Advance Auto Parts store and one of our Parts Pros will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.

      • Q:

        can the power steering pressure switch cause the engine on a 1995 mustang gt to stall and not fire back up until pressure relives
        Asked on 8/14/2012 by robert from orlando fla

        1 answer

        • CUSTOMER CARE

          A:

          Yes, the power steering pressure switch may be the cause as the switch is meant to bump up idle speed to prevent stalling whilst turning the wheel at slow speed or stationary. If you are stationary, turn the steering wheel. If the engine stalls, then it may be the power steering pressure switch. However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

          A:

          A power steering pressure (PSP) switch is located on the power steering pressure hose. It sends a signal to the powertrain control module (PCM) to increase idle speed for idling stability when power steering pump pressure increases above the set pressure value.

        What are the functions of the power steering pressure switch
        Asked on 4/29/2011 by lulu from homestead

        1 answer

        • CUSTOMER CARE

          A:

          The power steering switch’s primary function is to signal the PCM when the operating hydraulic pressure is exceeded by the power steering system and send appropriate signals to the PCM to prevent the engine from stalling. The idle speed of the vehicle is increased and the air conditioning compressor is disengaged. The power steering sensor sends a signal to the vehicle’s onboard computer that uses it to calculate the speed and if required engages the power steering switch mechanism.

          A:

          From the power steering pump follow the lines to the steering box. One of them will usually have the pressure switch on it. Well this all depends on the skill level of whoever is removing or replacing the relay. Some may have a harder time than others who have experience.

          Answered on 11/14/2010 by Ron the Auto Parts Rebel from AAP
        • A:

          In regards to the switch, it is located on metal tubing section of the pressure hose coming from the power steering pump to the steering box. If your power steering belt is installed, power steering fluid is to the full mark on the dip stick you should have power steering. It may make some noise if it is not bled properly. The noise is created by air entrapped in the hydraulic fluid.
