The problem could be anything from a power steering hose has leaked out all the power steering fluid or the steering rack could be leaking fluid. Has the car made any strange noises when turning the steering wheel? A car that is loosing power steering fluid will at some point lose so much fluid as to make the power steering pump cavitate (starve for fluid) and the pump will make a high pitched noise when it has too little fluid in it. I can't remember if the 1996 ranger had only one belt on the engine or if the power steering has it own seperate belt. The belt being gone would prevent the power steering from working but if you only have one belt the car would also overheat.

My 1996 Ford Ranger, battery light came on 2 days ago. It hasn't given any other problems all winter...yesterday it died, the warmest day of the year so far. It's got 2 more years on the warranty. And the sound it makes when trying to start is a long trail of "clicks" rather than the usual single click, dead battery sound.
Right before it died yesterday, pressure to the gas peddal produced back fires until finally it died altogether. Minutes before that I noticed my indicator began to falter, blinking very slowly. Within 5min. the truck died completly.
What would electrical failures have to do with backfiring? What could be the problem(s)?
