TN Steering problems, 2005 RX 8 Automatic, Standard package

My steering acts up when it is in cold weather. If sits over night the steering slips if I turn to left. It turns hard when going to the right. The Mazda dealer has spent a week trying to figure this out. Any suggestions? Has there been a recall on the stering

Well played Soldier. Not sure why this was asked in the Sakebomb Garage forum.

Docross, there is a new member forum for questions from new users. This is a vendor specific forum. That said, the link Soldier pointed to will help. The connectors need to be cleaned. I like windex for a cleaner, but any contact cleaner will work. Just make sure you get all 4 connectors.
