Hello, I have a 2004 Saturn vue, while I drive the car, the steering wheel makes a clicking sound, while it makes the clicking sound, the steering get hard, off and on. Can you please advise me on what to do?

When I drive the car, the steering wheel get hard, off and on. It also makes a clicking sound all the time, every time it clicks, it either gets hard or soft again like its suppose to be.

thank you, javier

Right on top of the steering wheel, like on the column.

No. The clicking is all the time, weather I am turning or not. The clicking is coming from the steering column, not the airbag area. Almost coming from where the turning signal is.

You have electric steering so I would have power steering control module checked for codes since the steering is turning off and on. The auto parts store cant read those codes.I would also check all the connections to the steering motor and power steering control module. Its all there at the base of the steering column.
