I've got a 2014 Toyota Corolla with a power steering system that doesn't kick in until 5-10 seconds after I've started the car. After sitting a few seconds, the power steering goes from nothing to fully operational, and I also feel the A/C blower crank up to full blast at the same time. Any ideas what's causing this sluggishness on startup?
Other data points - the problem just started on one of the first days over 95°F this summer. It got my attention when I initially couldn't start the car - I just heard the solenoid clicking with no attempt to turn over. After a few more tries, it started up but then I noticed the power steering problem.
