SOURCE: won't start

should be fine after a while. if not just change a plug see if that makes any difference. i highly doubt that you can get to the distributer to see if any water may have been splashed in it. but if you can mark it on the lid and the mount and pop it off.

SOURCE: Engine stalls, then runs after pressing accelerator

If you were low on gas at the time, it could have shifted the fuel in the tank when you turned. The engine can stall for a couple of seconds and then restart as the fuel pump primes again.

Your alternator belt may not be tighten enough. Turn off your engine, press the belt with your thumb, it must have à 0.5 " depression.

I've seen it happen many times on the older Caravans, if you hit a really deep puddle, the splash can knock the accessory drive belt off of its pulleys. You can just gently pry the belt back on, consult a service manual for detailed installation directions.

Check for loose/ dirty battery connections. Check condition/ tension of the alternator drive belt. It would appear that there is a loose wire some where that is causing an intermittent power flow to the cpu

You most likely have a bad battery since the car starts with a jump. As for the steering problem you have electronic power steering. Most newer cars have this nowadays. Battery problems can cause this problem also.
