2006 jeep liberty battery light came on and steering is very hard to turn..

Did you check to see if the serpentine belt is tight or missing? The battery light comes on to tell ou there is a problem with the charging system. It does not come on when the battery is bad. Since the alternator and the power steeringpu p are run Blythe same belt it would make sense to check the belt to make sure it is there and tight and capable of turning these accessories.

I have been having a short problem with my 1995 grand marquis since i bought it. whenever I turn the steering wheel to the right the battery light comes on, i feel a slight vibration in the wheel and the...

Hello, I would say to look at the ABS wiring to the front wheels. When you turn your wheel to the right both front wheels move. On one side or the other there must be a shorted wire contacting the frame when the wires twist a certain way.

This would account for the vibration in the wheel caused by the ABS sensor grounding. This would also account for the Battery signal and the lights dimming. It is possible your Serpetine belt is stretched or the Tension pulley is weak with the load of the steering working.

But this would not fully account for it to do this in only one direction. The Serpetine belt still travels the same direction no matter which way the steering wheel is turned. So if extra pressure is needed to make the steering work harder turning right, then some parts are binding more on one side of the car. You need to have your Balljoints checked.

I hope my solution gives you some ideas to fix your car. I recommend checking the items I have mentioned starting with the Balljoints.

Battery light and wheel lock

the belt of the alternator broke.

the battery light is the indication that the alternator is not charging and the wheels were not locked but very hard to turn because the power steering is not turning also. they could be using the same belt.

solution: replace the belt.

tnx 4 using fixya,
