Question about 2006 Toyota RAV4
The battery light stays on when driving after a while I can't steer the car no more. Checked battery and is ok. Had the alternator checked, also ok. Can it be that there is something wrong with the power steering? By the way, my car is parked for a week and won't start at all. Something is draining the battery while it is parked and not running. Please help, I don't have lots of money to get it to the toyota dealer.They want $100.00 box just to check the car. Thanks for any response. Silvia
Curious but did the drive belt bust... the drive belt that drives the alternator and the power steering ???

SOURCE: power steering light
There are sensors that control steering effort (variable assist) and also valving in some cases, one of these has a problem, I would have the system tested to see what the fault is before it developes a problem u can feel.

Sometimes the alarm thinks the pos. battery cable has been cut so it kills the ighition. You will have to look in the manual to see how to reset the alarm. You may need a code. If its not the alarm, you may have blown a fuse or worse, fried the computer when you put the alt. in. start at the begining. Check the battery cable connections, battery voltage, alt. wires and connections. if the headlighys work but the car won't start, it's prob. not a "connection" problem.

Actually this sounds more like your left tire is rubbing against the tire well, this was relatively common amongst these models, as I have one myself that did that while turning right, I solved it by hammering out the dent that was in the well. Hope this helped GL!
