So my power steering pump is making some horrible noises. With over 200k miles, I figure she's about due for a replacement. I know I have the steering assist, and my build sheet says it's equipped with the tow package, so I know to make sure to get the right pump.
My issue is that 2 days ago I was driving to work in the morning, and when I made a left turn, all of my interior lights came on and my VIC started beeping saying my passenger door was open? It did the same thing this morning, only when I make left turns, and only when I have my headlights on.
Does anyone have any clue where to start looking for issues? I'm not sure if it's related to the pump going bad, or if I need to be looking for a short somewhere. Tomorrow I'm going to check fuses and relays to see if anything has blown and plan to replace the pump by the end of the weekend. If I figure it out, I'll be sure to post back.
