My steering has gone out on my 2014 Chevy Silverado, as of this morning. What do I need to do about the recall.
I have a 2014 Silverado 1500, and even with the recall and upgrade of the software by Chevy, my truck kept having issues with the steering loosing power.
Main problem was Chevy installed a 150amps alternator to save on cost instead of a 170amps alternator, there for your 150amps alternator is too small to handle the vehicle electric load and will eventually fail.
I replaced my faulty original alternator and upgraded with 170amps. All steering and electrical problems gone after that.
Was your battery gauge staying to one side or the other while the truck was running. Just wondering because my power steering just quit all at once last night but my gauge had been sitting on the low side of charging before that and now it is staying where it needs to be
