I have a 2007 GMC ACadia. Out of no where the sterring is really tight but only when I apply the brakes. Such as parking or turning. If I am turning and the gas is applied its fine. The power steering fluid it at the right level.

Do you
have the same problem?

If the power assist comes back when you speed up the engine a little, suspect a weak pump. That seems to be a common problem.

Check for a slipping belt also. Watch while you turn wheel when stopped/park.
