If your car is chugging and your gauges are going crazy it could be your battery. I just went through this today. Have your battery tested.

We had the battery replaced last week..

Ok, your ground terminal in the front of the car could be rusted or corroded. You could look at that and if it is try cleaning it up to get a better connection.

I did see that a lot of people are complaining about their cobalt power steering light coming on after the tire traction light.

Is it throwing any codes

Where is the ground termetal at?

5

Its just under the oil dip stick. I also added a ground wire from the ecm to where it grounds on the strut.

I haven't took it anywhereally to check

There are a few good videos on youtube that may help you.

Did that fix your problem?

My problem was my battery. I added the ground wire after. An extra ground could help.

What exactly does the extra ground wire do?

If you have a faulty ecm ground adding another ground could bypass it and correct your problem.
