All symptoms of a loose or worn drive belt. As the belt wears, it develops slick spots that slip instead of grab. Since the main drive belt drives the power steering and alternator, this would be consistent with your issue.

Loud squealin from power steering belt


Check the tension of the power steering belt.
It is probably loose and slipping - belts can stretch during their initial run in period.

they don't make these anymore, the problem is the belt motor almost every time or the drive nylon ribbon breaks, your only hope is to find a used one, use goggle search, use this in search window "used part request for a 1994 Ford Escort passive restraint seat belt" fill out the form that comes up and one or moe wrecting yards will contact u. I am a 25 year Ford dealer tech and know this info for sure.

Squealing noise (belt) and now the battery light is on. any idea what this could be?


Sqealing belt is loose belt. Battery light on could mean loose or failing aternator for same reason. If belt isn't loose, use belt dressing. If this is helpful, please rate as such. TY
