Get your battery charged and get it tested. The steering wheel fault is generated usually when low battery power occurs, and once restored, and car is driven a few feet,it clears itself..

SOURCE: Power steering went out on 2000 VW Golf - Battery ind. light on.

hi, if the 2 problems happened at the same time then probably your alternator belt has broken, as the power steering is also run off the same belt

Steering wheel light is on after battery went dead (along with traction control).


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

My air bag light is on all of a sudden


When the airbag light (SRS) is on or blinks it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the system, the most common problem that turns the light on is a break in the connection to the steering wheel mounted airbag, this is due to a rotating flat ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the wiring harness and the diagnostic monitor, the part is called the clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the steering wheel while maintaining a mechanical connection to the airbag mounted on the steering wheel, to replace this part you must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel, this requires a special steering wheel puller tool and that you disarm the airbag system before you start the work, to do this disconnect the battery negative cable for 1/2 hour prior.

The battery light came on at that point i was unable to turn the steering wheel


your car is fitted with PAS (power steering) when your engine is not running, the power steering pump will not function, thus making the steering heavy (feels like you cant move it, but you actually can, its just very very stiff and hard) when the battery light came on, and the steering went off, this is a sign that your ALTERNATOR (the battery charger) and POWER STEERING PUMP are on the same BELT, thus if the belt snaps, the light comes on and the steering gets heavy/stuck/hard.

You need to fit a new alternator belt as yours has more than likely snapped (common for all cars) and unless a new belt is fitted, you battery will go flat after a while too, as the alternator is the batteries power source (charger) when the engine is running! however the car will still drive/run, but i wouldnt advice it, as this will soon shorten the batteries power.

If you dont know how to fix it, you need to go to a garage/mechanic and tell them you need: A NEW ALTERNATOR BELT FITTING (they will charge for this service) this should then solve your problem!!

Battery went low. when charged VDC light and slp light came on.Any quick fix Thanks.


light should go out, when you start driving. if it does not, than you will have to go to nissan dealer and have your "steering angle sensor" recalibrated. you need nissan scan tool to do that. there is a procedure for it that may need to be performed.

Battery light indicator went on initially, and power to vehicle eventually died out; with engine sputtering.


If your battery light indicator went on it indicates that the battery is not charging because of either a dying battery or alternator or both!
With the red battery indicator on, the battery will eventually drain out (especially if the alternator is faulty) to the point where it will not provide the required power to the car electrical system ... thus causing it to 'sputter' and eventually die out - a sure sign it that you cannot restart the motor due to a weak of flat battery!
Hope it helps you understand the possible problem!

Power steering went out while driving and battery


If the belt gets wet and flies off, or starts to slip, the power steering and alternator will stop spinning causing this condition.

Check belts to see if they are still on the truck and spinning the pulleys of the alternator and power steering pump.
