While driving down road my kia 2002 spectra just died and now when I turn key it just clicks and all the dash lights and radio go out


was there any warning lights before dieing ?it would seem to be an alternator/charging problem,is the serpent belt ok? try jump starting or changing the battery, if she starts then check for ignition charge light staying on, if she still wont start/turnover could be a starter motor problem or a jammed alternator, if she wont turn over on a fully charged battery or jump leads remove the serpent belt that drives the alternator/AC /power steering etc try starting again if ok switch off and try turning each pulley driven by the serpent belt by hand the only one you should not be able to turn is the main crankshaft pulley, if any of the others are hard or impossible to turn you have found the problem

I think that the hard steering and the charge light is telling you that the drive belt is missing or is badly need of replacing as the common unit to both your problems is the drive belt.

Battery light and abs light on hard to steer overheating


sounds like you either lost your fan belt, or you have a seized up alternator, or belt tensioner. The fan belt [ drive belt ] turns the alternator to charge the battery, the power steering pump to make easy steering , and the water pump cooling your engine. Do you smell rubber burning? hear a squealing noise? or rattling noise. Open your engine bonnet, start the car up, and look at the drive belt and pulleys. They should all be turning. If this is the problem you will see something seized up. Also if you have let the power steering pump run out of oil, it may also be seized. Good luck with it

If you lost power steering, then the engine stopped, you probably lost your belt, which drives both your alternator and your power steering pump. Lift the hood and look at the pulleys and see if the belt is on them.
If the engine stopped running, then you lost power steering, I can't be sure.

Sounds like you lost the charge from the alternator.
When the alternator quits charging your battery light comes on and your car will run on battery power only...and only for a short time.
As the battery gets its stored energy used up...everything that is electrical will get slow or dim.

I'd check your alternator for proper operation and its drive belt...

Hope this helps...

Sounds like your belt broke or came off. If the power steering quit working too. The belt runs power steering, alternator, A/C unless it is different belt. Have you looked under the hood at all? If it turns out that it isn't that. Then check all of the connections on the battery and alternator. Check fuses for charging system.

I hope this helps.

Battery light turned on. Lost power steering and AC.


You broke your serpatine belt. Needs replacing. It's a $50ish part and easy to do if you have a diagram under the hood of how the belt fits. But if it was "rattling" for a couple of weeks take it in for crying out loud. Let the mechanic look it over to make sure your lack of vechile care didn't destroy anything under the hood.....

WHILST DRIVIN MY MX5 SLOWLY LOST POWER !! PLEASE HELP ME !! MATT.


Well...your battery is dead. Check the connections of the cables on the battery posts to make sure they are tight and clean (no corrosion). While you're under the hood, look at the belt (serpentine) that runs your alternator. Is it there? If it fell off, your alternator can't charge your battery. You may have a bad alternator, a bad battery, or no belt....but use a battery charger to charge the battery...your alternator is only designed to "maintain" the charge, not bring it up to full power. Good luck, alternators for the MX5 are spendy, so I hope it's one of the other problems.
