You have a 4 cyl, right? That has a pressure switch in the power steering line. I think it is just below the pump. That switch may be bad. Here is the code info I have.

P0551--- Power Steering Switch Failure--- Incorrect input state detected for the power steering switch circuit. PL: High pressure seen at high speed.
