Vehicle is going 45-55mph it starts to decelerate. Steering gets stiff. Oil pressure light comes on, and when brakes are applied vehicle begins to accelerate without pressing on accelerator pedal. Problem has duplicated itself many times, but dealer can't duplicate this problem to find a solution. Once vehicle is restarted there is no problem.

DeVille

  • miles
Steering and brakes lock, usually on a curve, always on wet road. Problem has happened with other drivers in this vehicle. Questions to dealer service department offer no enlightenment or satisfaction; they've never heard of anything like this.
