So when being a dink and sliding, and spinning out, in an empty lot near me, I have noticed the power steering will cut out and I get the system failure light and traction control light. Only way to fix it seems to be shut the car off and turn it back on. Things will be fine for a bit that it will happen again. Never happens any other time. I did a search and founds lots of other power steering related threads, but not on this specific issue. And before some one asks, yes the TCS/DSC system is off when I am doing this. And, I am sure some will think what I am doing is dumb, but, I am having fun and not hurting any one. Just learning better car control.
Any info on this would be great. Thanks in advance.

never had this issue before. something is not right.
check if you have coolant coming out the overflow tube on the expansion tank dripping onto the PS connector.
agreed... People slide and hoon all the time, the power steering should stay working....
