Question about Toyota Cars & Trucks
2000 Toyota MR2. While driving I lost power to dash lights, headlights and all indicators, heater fan, wipers, windows and locks. I also noticed that the power steering assist was apparently gone. Serpentine belt OK.

SOURCE: power steering light
There are sensors that control steering effort (variable assist) and also valving in some cases, one of these has a problem, I would have the system tested to see what the fault is before it developes a problem u can feel.

This could be a combination of electrical issues, although i feel that the timing is coincidence in this case. When the combination is elec. windows, wipers, and dome lights this is indicative of the GEM module located behind your radio. The GEM (generic electronic module) is an electronic body control module that regulates electrical flow through a number of accessories.
These factory module boards are notorious for acting quirky by failing to ground intermittently until failing completely. I would be cautious in replacing ignition switches, locks, etc. as the issue can be also compounded by corrosion of the main battery ground wire in the engine compartment and which can cause frying of your under dash wiring into the main wiring harness which can get expensive (i speak from experience having had the exact same syptoms). My issues were that these symptoms occurred only in full ON. When in key BACK ACC mode, they disappeared.
New price for one of these modules is around $280-$300 and easily replaced.

I think you need a new alternator. Also check every fuse in depth. Make sure all the connections are in place and secure.
