2007 saturn Ion steering light , loss of power steering on 2007 Saturn Ion

power steering went out 5 times yesterday when I was crossing a bridge in Philadelphia. Light on dashboard went on. What is most likely wrong. Will steering lock up and cause an acccident?

This is the kind of thing you should get addressed IMMEDIATELY by taking your car to the dealer (with a 2007 its likely still under warranty) or an independent mechanic. It could be any number of issues for a simple leak in the steering power pumps to something more severe, but don't wait as it creates a risk to both you and other drivers on the road.
I think the power steering in a Saturn Ion is electrical. No fluid. Check fuses.

I just received a letter telling me to take it to any GM dealer to have this fixed. I took it in and the motor was replaced at no charge
I'm having the same problem with my ion, is this a recall? who did you receive the letter from?
