What do you mean by power steering? Gear box, rack and pinion, pump, hose, fluid, sensor, ect. Need more info to help you.

There is no need to unhook the battery, what was the reason you replaced the pump? Are you sure you didn't put p.S. Fluid in the master cylinder?

I put power steering fluid in the pump, two years ago the power steering pump went out and the brakes too, I replaced it with a remanufactured pump the steering and brakes worked until recently. So I changed the pump and went to bleed it and the steering and brakes went out.

I lost my power steering then the brakes went out also this happened two years ago, so I replaced the power steering pump with a remanufactured pump and it worked and my brakes too. Now my power steering was leading so replaced it and it worked for a second and quit. The power steering and matter brake cylinder work together check out a newer Chevy first you'll see.

Oh, I believe you. I am just not sure where to go to at this point. This type of simultaneous dual failure is very hard to diagnose over the web.
