    Autozone has the pressure switch available for $27 and the labor is .6 so $110 is a fair price for that repair. http://bit.ly/10rjlb here's a repair guide if you want to tackle this.

    purchased switch from autozone for $29.95....switch is sitting down low on the rack n pinion where all the lines and the column converge... get under the driverside with a light and reach thru the frame section to unplug the 2 prong plug, and use a 7/8 deep socket with a 6 inch extension to screw it out...then screw the new one in and plug it in....you will have to add some power steering fluid to the reservoir because it will lose some when you pull the old switch out...took me about 15 minutes total...

    The PSPS is $35 and you must purchase it from a dealer. They will charge you 90 bucks to install it as it is 45 minutes or less of labor. You are charged for an hour. Put your car on ramps, it is located on the rack side of the power steering right behind the frame on the left side, Take cables on battery, be careful not to get PS fluid in your eyes as it will flow out once you remove the old one. Quickly insert new one and make sure you tighten it securely. Easy job.
