Question about 2002 Land Rover Discovery Series II
About two weeks ago I got an oil change for my truck (Wed, Oct 24) and that Friday I was driving home from work and all of a sudden my battery light came on, the steering wheel locked up, and the temp light came on (but the car wasn't running hot). Fortunately I was close to home, but when i popped the hood, and checked the fluid in the power steering I had fluid in there, but the wheel is tough to turn as if it lacks the fluid. I'm able to crank the car, lights come on, even drive it (I haven't been because its dangerous) but the Battery light is on, and the steering wheel seems locked up, I'm not quite sure on what is going on.
Sounds like a belt--
Belt provides rotation for the power steering pump, alternator, and water pump.
Hope this helps!

The noise is because the oil level is low and the pump is reverburating. Look at the bottom of the steering box, its usually the lower oil seal that leaks. If it is the steering box , then i suggest you take it to a mechanic to replace the seal, because to remove the drag link arm is very difficult without proper pullers.

Check the door switches for the interior lights and tighten the screws holding these on to make a good earth contact.Knock the door locks lightly with a hammer to get the insides loosened up and lube these with a penetrating spray.

Sounds like a belt let go, but other items could come in to play here, such as. : Seized idler pulley, seized alternator, etc. Obviously you need to have it checked out. Did you notice if engine overheated, that would be the one that would worry me.

If the water got high enough to cover the front of the engine or was shot up high enough by hitting the puddle it will cause the belt or belts to slip on the pulleys so you can loose power steering or the alt will show low amperage output and will turn on the battery light.

Testimonial: "You were also correct. Belt off and only one bolt holding altinator on, other two bolts broke. Thank you for your help"
The Solenoid fitted on the Steering Rack is not getting the command from The Body Control Unit. Kindly Replace your BCM and then your problem is solved. You can try to make sure by giving direct current of 12v to the solenoid and check the Steering. if it works then simply change the BCM as it's not giving d command to the Solenoid. Salman EiD
