Al, I looked it up on Rock Auto, if I remember correctly, the AC Delco was around $700 Canadian dollars
Hello I'm hoping this group can help me.
I got a 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 5.3, crew cab.

3 months ago my power steering stoped working while I was driving. I had to use alot of force to turn the steering wheel. I parked and turned the truck off, went back the next day and the issue was gone, well for a couple of days it was.... Then it started happening intermittently at random and turning it off and on didn't seem to help. I called the dealership and they said they had a reprogram that wasn't for that issue but it might fix it. So I went in and they did the reprogram (it was part of a recall).
And that seemed to fix the issue for about a month but now my truck says " Power Steering, Drive with care " (see photo above) and I don't have any power steering. During my research I ran across people that had the steering wheel want to return to straight on its own mine is not doing that, it's just dead and hard as hell to turn even when driving.
I have also recently noticed that my lights would dim a bit when turning to pull out of my driveway (before the power steering went out completely).
I also found an internet post where a ground bolt by the drivers speaker might have some sound dampening material under the bult causing a ground issue. And that fixed a guy's steering and light dmimg issue. Well I checked that on my truck even pulled up the bolt checked that everything is clean and put it all back. Still having the issue so that wasn't it.

My battery terminals look awesome no corrosion or dirt at the posts.
Another thing that I recently noticed was a soft grinding sound when turning my staring wheel. Coming from the steering column. Sound like a bad bearing. Could it be a steering position sensor?
My altanator is charging at 14 - 14.5 when the truck is on, battery is only a year old.
I am hoping you guys might have some other things I could try. I don't have access to a high end scan tool. I read that a code could be present that should be in the history but is in current causing the shutdown of the power steering system.

gm dealership will lie to you to steal your money .. rack will NOT throw that code !
new gm has electrical corroded components/wiring/and pins ..I know that monkey wench mechanics, just change parts .. they are not electronic technicians ..
Thanks for the reply! I used a small wire brush to clean the OEM connectors the best I could. And used some electronic auto cleaner. So sounds like the next step is to just replace the rack and motor.you posted 2 mo ago the nasty connector pictures, you replace those cables that have new connector well when you connect the new connector to the OEM original component connector you have to use a small wire brush to clean those old pins ... probably also the motor F's up intermittent ..
I posted the document that has your PS issue..
