No power steering

Recommended Posts

I have an 08 escape XLT. Someone borrowed it and when it came back there was no power steering. I did s lot of research and replaced the torque sensor. I didn't help. The steering wheel does not twitch nor is the problem inconsistent. It just doesn't have power steering. Everything I have seen online says that people have off and on problems while in turns or they have to hold the wheel to maintain center of lane, or the wheel twitches while close to full lock. Mine as far as I know went from no problems to not working. Just like loosening a power steering belt on a conventional system. Does anyone have any suggestions for my next step?

Have you found a solution to this since you posted about it? I'm having identical issues as you.  This forum is pretty deserted as far as people replying to power steering issues. I'm planning on replacing the column assembly that has the electric motor attached. I have already replaced the steering sensor, but nothing changed after that.
