97 Cadillac Seville, cluncking in front end, rack and pinion, can feel the noise coming from inside the rack and pinion. Steering seems to lock up while driving straight or in a turn.

1997 Seville sts while starting turn from a stop the traction control applies the brakes skids the tires, takes away the ability to steer and decelerates the engine, this also occurs when doing the posted speed limit (70) mph. The book requires drivers to pull over and turn car off then restart, doing this on the freeway permits this to occur at high way speeds. Went to dealer, they say to replace the steering sensor, called manufacturer they say too bad consumer.
