    Did you ever figure this out? My 05 Tacoma suddenly has tight steering, intermittent tightness through a full turn. Took it to Firestone and they said "Remove & Replace Power Steering Pressure Switch". Can't seem to find much on it. They quoted $119 + $95 labor. Stealership quoted $159 + $140 labor! Seems like something I could remove and replace myself given enough instruction. I found it online for only $32. This has to be something we can fix ourselves.
