problem #2

While I was driving in rush hour traffic during a turn onto a 4 lane divided highway a power steering message came on and the alarm sounded and discovered my power steering was gone. I had to pull extremely hard to the left to complete the turn. I then pulled over to check it out and turned off the car and sat there for a minute and restarted the car and it was okay. This has happened over the last 6 days several times but always in the afternoon, not the morning. I went into the place I get my car worked on for routine service and they hooked to the computer and said it had something to do with a faulty electronic switch and would have to be taken to the dealer. This is an extreme safety issue.
