Both the power steering pump and alternator are driven by a belt which on my diesel van is to the left of the engine and visable. if you can see the alternator and where the belt should be check it is tight and more importantly there.

The tensioner is between the a/c compressor and crank pulley, below the power steering pump. Use a 13 mm wrench to 'tighten' the bolt in the center of the pulley and it'll move to release tension off the belt.

The battery light , no heat, no power steering 01 escort


You broke your serpentine belt. These are cheap and easy to replace for the most part. Usually you can do them yourself.
