Car shuts off, battery light comes on, steering wheel locks up, all while driving


I am assuming you mean you loose power steering when the steering wheel locks up, which would be a normal event if the engine dies. Same goes for the battery light since the alternator would stop charging the battery.
Someone will need to figure out if you are loosing fuel or spark when the engine dies, then troubleshoot the problem. It may be difficult to find if the mechanic can not duplicate the problem in the shop.

95 Camry Dies While Driving


It's gotta be the distributor. They are a common fault for that model and I actually have the same model as you. They are very sensitive to water as well. Easy part to replace if you are a do it yourself kind of person. If the distributor goes bad, you can crank it all day long and it wont spark.
You say your rpm gauge was steady the whole time? That sounds like something else but i'll stick with my original guess. Throw a used one in it from a wrecking yard if you like. Make sure to keep the adjuster bolts in the same place as your current position as that is your timing.
Distributor is located on the right side on the top of the engine and have the wires for the spark plugs going into it. you will need a 10mm socket to remove the 2 bolts holding it in. Its easier to do if you disconnect the air intake as well by simply using a screw driver. Any more questions, I'd be happy to answer. All the best

Whatever happened, the engine computer sensed it and turned on the light. You will have to have the computer scanned for the trouble codes- a tech or mechanic could then follow the codes to find the problem.

Dashboard lights and gauges go out, windows won't work


Your alternator is out. Those are classic symptoms of alternating going out. The alternator recharges your electrical system and when it goes out a list of strange things go on inside the dash, and you won't be able to go very far on just a battery. I'm glad you at least made it home. But yes you will need a new alternator for sure. Please rate this response so I can get my ratings back up to 90% at least.

Power steering locked up one day going down road, car died, and every since u can turn it over but it wont crank?? help!!!!


Remove the power steering belt from the power steering pump. Try to restart. Sounds like the power steering pump froze up. If the belt drives more than the power steering pump (like the alternator), you will have drained the battery and the engine will not start. replace pump, charge battery, replace belt....hopefully drive. Good luck.

Car shuts off while driving


Gm products had a lot of problems with their pcm's and that's what they would do.
It is located on the left side of the engine compartment, by the air cleaner. Tap on it while it is running and see if it stumbles, if it does, it is the problem. Also, tap on the MAF sensor that is located in the air cleaner hose.Watch for the same results.
