Is it possible that the unit has gone bad? If so it will lock up or be sticking and not turning like it should. Check the fluid to see if it has gotten thick. Sign of it getting hot because pump has gone bad. Other than tightening all the belts I do not know anything else. Hope this helps.

Start at the crankshaft (bottom pulley) and loop the right side behind the belt tensioner. Match smooth pulleys to the back side of the belt and grooved pulleys to the inside of belt. There should be a pic on a label under the hood also.

lmmfao. take apart the head unit to see whats binding? seriously?! the problem is most likely the anti theft built into the factory radio. if you didnt disable it before uninstalling the factory radio it could trip the security feature and disable your car. i really wish people wouldnt post such ignorant answers or an answer at all if they dont know what theyre talking about!!

Key won't turn in ignition...should I replace the lock cylinder, or is there something else I should try...? 2005 chevy impala

Try rocking the steering wheel back and forth. Also even though the tumbler is the cause most of the time you should check the electrical part of the switch at times when it goes it won't allow the key to turn. Rocking the steering wheel is so that you can make sure that it is not turning due to the steering lock putting to much pressure on the tumbler.

It sounds a lot like the accessory drive belt was slipping. Check the tension of the belt. It should be hard to flip it upside down with your fingers. I would say the rain was enough for the power steering and alternator pulleys to start slipping.
