    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.

Power steering went out while driving and battery


If the belt gets wet and flies off, or starts to slip, the power steering and alternator will stop spinning causing this condition.

Check belts to see if they are still on the truck and spinning the pulleys of the alternator and power steering pump.

No power steering on my chrysler voyager


is this the 3.3 liter or the 3.8?

I know that there is 1 serpentine belt that runs all (incl. the PS pump) on the 3.8 liter. So if that belt
was missing, you would also be over heating, have no alternator charging, no ac (if equipped) as well as have no PS. If you see any belt at all (on the passenger side), then you are ok. The PS fluid resevoir is near the top and easily found. It has writing on the cap which also has a built in dipstick. Check the fluid level in the resevoir and fill it if nec. Are you hearing noises from the PS system with the fluids full? If so, you might need a new pump. Check for leaks too if the fluid was low, you might have a leaking hose or PS rack (hope not on the rack though $$)
