Battery and break indicator showed up and power steering went out all at the same time

Are you sure the drive belt is still on the engine ?
The battery light usually comes on when the alternator is not charging the battery, and the power steering is also belt driven.
The brake warning light can come on when the brake fluid is low, but also when the battery light comes on.

I have a 1998 Dodge Caravan. I got a "tune up" approx. 2 weeks ago with new spark plugs, fuel filter & air filter. It did fine driving around town & on a 130 mile trip. I filled up with...

Sounds like you got a tank of bad gas. That would easily cause your issues. Start by draining as much as you can, put a can of Seafoam in there, add a few gallons of fresh gas, drive to the gas station and tank up, and run that tank down until your gas light comes on before adding more. You may end up needing a fuel filter or plugs again, but with minimal run time on the bad gas, you'll probably be fine.

Power steering went out air conditioner went out and engine started racing on and off while driving all happened at the same time

You just broke the serpentine belt, no big deal, you can drive it to a parts store, just keep it moving or it will over heat and it will drain the battery, so you have to be quick. get a new belt on there, you should be all set. Hope this helps.

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

Hard to steer and air conditioner went and the battery charging light on

Do not drive the vehicle any more or it will soon die when the battery is dead. The serpentine belt broke and the alternator is not working leaving the vehicle running off the battery and it is not being charged.
