Default Power steering ???

First off I would like to say thanks to the ones that has made these forums! I come on here about a year ago with a timing belt problem and found all the info I needed to replace the timing belt myself and saved alot of money!! I've been searching on here today for a power steering issue I have with no luck,so Ive registered and figured I'd just ask. Here we go,, A month ago the check engine light came on and said the power steering sensor was bad but I've not replace it yet. Just found out today where it is! lol Two weeks ago my wife tells me that she lost her power steering but it didn't whine,squeal or anything. It just quit. The other day she calls me and says its working again. I checked the fluid, belts and listened for any grinding noises and there's nothing noticeably wrong. Has anyone ever heard of this and what should I be looking for? Its a 03 non turbo. Manual tranny. Thanks again!!

Welcome to the Forum Hayworth!! Check the wiring, maybe it is frayed, broken.
