Power Steering Problem

My Cobalt has no power steering, its completely shut. The major difference that everyone seems to have is that their "check engine" light comes on and the words "power steering" comes on their DIC. (driver information center), My car does NOT have either one. I thought it might be a blown fuse however it was not the case. Also restarting the car does NOT solve the problem. What are some possibilities???

have you ever had the recall service done on the car for the power steering? sounds exactly like the reason the recall was issued

The car was serviced for the recall few years ago. I am trying to see if anyone had the same issue and how they resolved the matter. I cant afford to take it to GM and spend $2000 for them to change few random parts in hopes of it being fixed.
