If everything was fine before you went through the puddle ..
Get underneath the car and check all the electrical connections you can see on your transmission.
Depending on the depth of the water and speed you were doing, the surge of water may have affected a connection. Remove what wires you can see and clean them. Do the same with any electrical connections you can see around the brake areas.
mcdevito75 here, Chances are your driveing too fast thru puddles, water is getting on the belt causeing it to slip and water also hittind electricall system, cils / Alternator etc. go slower thru puddles, better yet avoid them as you could get stuck.
have you checked under the hood ? to check if the drivebelt/s for power steering pump is there and if your engine is diesel the power servo pump may be same belt ? hence loss of both these functions? as you say going thro puddles?? deep ? could have caused belt to come off it will be obvious to see if belt is not there ? hope this helps
That's caused by the water getting on the P/S drivebelt allowing it to slip till it dries off. If the shields are in place under the front of the engine, then the only thing you can do is to avoid deep water or be ready for the hard steering when you must go through water. It happens to some extent on just about every car.
