did you remove the air compressor ,and if you did you need to put something in its place for the belt tensioner will not hold tension . it will be easier to just replace the air condition pump or best known as the air compressor with a used one . this is my link to my garagehttps://www.facebook.com/TedsRepairs
Look for a pulley that isn't turning when the engine is running. A seized air pump did this exact thing on a Lincoln Town Car that I recently worked on. My in-laws had a Mercury Zephyr that stopped dead from a seized power steering pump.
Have a helper ready to start the car when you say so. Have a flashlight in hand, if necessary. When the engine is running, look for a seized (not spinning) pulley. It's likely that the belt was damaged if it smoked a lot.
sounds like you may need an alternator... theres not a short< your just losing battery power and the steering wheel being hard to turn is probably your engine cutting out... also it could be a seized up pully or a/c compressor...
