Re: Cutting out in wet weather and No power steering in...
I sounds by your explanation, that the belt which drives the alternator is slipping when it gets wet. When this happens the alternator stops charging the battery, and when battery voltage drops the engine cuts out and won't start due to not having enough current to supply electrons as well as starter motor. Have the belt tension checked, as well as charging output of alternator, should fix it.

What is possibly happening is when you brake, there is a vacuum leak caused by the power brake system, this reduces the engine rpm, which in turn effects the power steering which makes it feel like the steering is locking up. This can also happen with a vacuum leak anywhere in the engine or things like a faulty idle adjustment control.... Turn the vehicle on, place your foot on the brake, if the idle speed increases dramatically you have a problem. Then put the vehiclein drive with your foot on the brake. If it nearly dies, again, you have an issue.
There are many different things on an engine that can create vacuum leaks. EGR Valves, IAC solenoid, PCV valves, the list goes on....
Good luck finding this particular issue!
the crank pulleys (also called a harmonic dampener) on these vehicle are a fairly common failure. as they begin to break apart, the pulley will begin to have a wobble as the engine runs, causing the drive belts that power your alternator, power steering, etc to loosen off. when the belts then get wet, combined with being loose, they will slip, causing your accessories not to work. hope this was helpful!
HI, this is the result of a worn power steering belt. in this case, the pulley may be worn or, the entire serpentine belt may be worn altogether. have the power steering pump inspected for pulley and gear damage. inspect the serpentine belt for worn sections as well.
Most common issue will be a worn drive belt(serpentine)
Ok, two issues you should check out. one, check the power steering pump and fluid level. Make sure the power steering pump belt is tight and in good shape. secondly, i would run a check on the entire steering assembly. all linkages and that right wheel hub. there may be some issues with it. the main issue is the power steering pump assembly. make sure theres enough fluid in it.
My best guess is that the drive belt to the hydraulic pump is loose / worn, and it slips when wet. Also the extra load imposed on the system by turning when stationary causes it to slip even when dry.
Check that first :-)
Hope this helps. If this "fixes ya", I'd appreciate a rating for my reply, If not, please delay the rating and add a comment with any extra info you have and I will try to think of something else.
