It could be a problem with your front breaks because when they are going bad you will feel it in your steering wheel and your rear breaks when going bad you will feel a vibration in the break pedal.

or any other suspension component could be worn. Have it looked at ASAP before something lets go.

I know it needs brakes and possibly more. This thumping noise isn't the brakes, I don't know what it is. Wonder if it could be struts or sway bar.

Brakes don't make thumping noises. So you won't know till you have it diagnosed. Have a good mechanic look it over for you and suggest a repair.

Thanks y'all I will have it looked at. Don't think this car and I are a good fit. I looked under the dash and guess what....no fuses. They said it had a new brain just put in. My bad for not looking.

possible fuses are in dash panel you will see when drivers door is open.
