Sounds like the belt let go and maybe got jammed on the way out. The belt power the alternator, power steering pump and water pump etc. Check for a seized pulley as well. Sometimes the little bearings go.

Its me again, You might want to have someone check the grounds for the electrical system from motor to body and body to frame. This will cause a similar broblem with the charging system to not allow it to function properly. On the brake issue I am still trying to figure the relationship to what started your problem but to no avail. Do you have the height adjusted air suspension? If so there is a procedure for bleeding the power steering system that has to be done which is lengthy to type. I will do it if this is the case and you do not have a repair manual.
