    It turned out that the serpentine belt had slipped off-somthing I guess Grand Voyagers from 96-00 are susceptible to if you drive through water.

    Was recommended to purchase a Gates converter belt kit that prevents this kind of slippage.

Yes, these vans are susceptible to taking in water. You may have an alternator full of water and it may be affecting the charge to the battery. Have an auto parts store test the alternator to see what it's output is.

As for the power steering, I don't know why the water would affect it.

If you go to the dealer, say nothing about the water puddle. I had a friend with a similar situation and the warranty would not cover the repair because they chose to drive into the water.

Check the engine oil dipstick for signs of water (bubbles). Sometimes the engine will **** water if they go to far underwater.

Power steering

Have you inspected the belt? It is probably stretched or damaged...the belt turns the power steering unit, and charges your battery via the alternator...(low battery light) Did you drive through some deep water last night? Be sure to inspect this so you do not get stranded. Hope this helps.

What would cause power steering fluid turn milky in 2000 chrysler 300?

The power steering is a sealed system. No way coolant could get in there. It might be contaminated by moisture from the air though. So you could suction it out (a turkey baster works great), and replace with clean fluid.
Wasw the engine overheating from low coolant level? Hopefully, thats all it was. Keep it full!

Battery and break indicator showed up and power steering went out all at the same time

Are you sure the drive belt is still on the engine ?
The battery light usually comes on when the alternator is not charging the battery, and the power steering is also belt driven.
The brake warning light can come on when the brake fluid is low, but also when the battery light comes on.

The power steering fluid is at the minium I would like to know should I add more?

Yes. if u leave fluid too low it will cause premature wear on the power steering pump and rack and pinion assembly. Fill fluid to the between spot of the full and low area.

The checj engine light on my 99 pontiac sunfire came on last week and stayed on when i drove only a few short distances. it sat for 4 days and was on again when i drove under 8 miles then finally turned...

first of all, was the water on the passenger side from the air conditioner or a leak (what color was the fluid?)-the cap has to be tight, otherwise it will not hold pressure, so that has to be checked before you set off again-push down as you turn the cap clockwise, and it will not hurt to have water in the system (it actually transfers heat better than antifreeze) but it has a much lower boiling point, so the cap has to be tight. Pay attention to the temperature gauge and do NOT overheat it-it is an aluminum engine and they do not tolerate excessive heat. Take your time, no AC (although the AC being on can keep a good cooling system more stable since the radiator fan is forced on when the AC is running, so you can, within reason, experiment)-no matter what, just don't let it run hot-not worth it.

Car has not been driven for about a week, we had below freezing nights for a few nights. light, radio, electrical seem to work ok. motor makes an effort to turn over, shakes a little and makes a squeal...

drain and flush the cooling system and make sure that you use a 50/50 mixture of coolant and water when you fill it back up.

Common issue.... Most people are under the impression that if you use straight coolant in a vehicle, it will never overheat or freeze. WRONG...WRONG...WRONG,

Coolant needs water to activate or it will freeze just like water will.
