Do you have a power steering noise as well/ Have you checked the level? If low then you will need to check to see where it is leaking. Keep me posted and let me know what is going on? You could also have an electrical problem?

Tank You for the answer. There is no leak , and there is no noise as well, its just not working when on place and is getting to work when geting some speed, I was thinking maybe power steering speed sensor or something like that went bad, I know there is 3 sensor conected with this option, but im not sure the computer will read separete for each one or will tell me about the general power steering problem. Im sorry for my broken english, im writing to you from europe. Thank You

Check your fuses on the side of the dash on the driver side. Look at fuses #32 and 33. If they are bad replace them and see if the blow again. If they do then you have a short circuit. Let me know what happens.
