My toyota corolla(bubble) shows p/s light on dashboard, and at the same time the power steering becomes stiff. But when the p/s light goes off, the steering becomes normal. This problem is quite intermittend and quite boring. This car was recently involved in an accident at the vehicle front. What could be the problem and what needs to be done? THIS IS SO URGENT, PLEASE HELP

When the light is on the system has recognized a fault and shut down. There should be a trouble code stored that can be retrieved with a professional scan tool, not just a simple code reader.

I would like to convey my profound gratitude to Wrenchtech, though so lately, but your answer was lightning quick. It worked. I had had problems signing into my profile of late. Thanx once again. God bless.
