power steering light on

Every morning when the weather the night before was in 50's I would have to go to work late because power steering would not work until around 10:30 when the car has been under sun for hours!!!!

We bought the car in May 2014. In July 2014 the ABS and Stabilitrak lights started coming on sporadically. We took the car in multiple times over 2 years and the service dept. could never figure it out. Fast forward 2 years the Stabilitrak light came on, the car started bucking, traveling down the hwy at 60 mph. They replaced the BCM Module. Ten days later...the Stabilitrak and ABS lights once again came on. Took it back to the dealer they stated it was the battery which they replaced. 6 days later...I have a check engine light, Stabilitrak light and a power steering light with no power steering. Of course this was a holiday and the dealer is closed. Took it to AutoZone. The code comes up as Fuel Pump. I am so over this car! I had my Buick Rendezvous for 10 years and LOVED it. If I had the taxes to pay for a new car I would drop this car so fast for a new one.
