Question about 2004 Ford Fusion

Ford fiesta zetec 55 plate Power steering lock and engine cut out

On a number of occassions I have been driving and my steering has locked and the engine cuts out completely, usually more often when i'm turning into a road or roundabout. It usually starts up straight away but then i'm really worried it will happen again. This has now become dangerous as it has caught me on a number of occassions when there have been cars behind me. I bought this car brand new and it has only done 12,000 miles. I took it to ford who found no fault what so ever and it has even been to a private garage where no fault has been found. When I switch the car on all the light are on but after a few seconds 3 lights remain which is the enginel ight,oil light and battery light. No I feel I just want to get rid of it and dont want to buy a ford again.
