I had this exact problem several years ago: my car would just shut off while both braking and turning, usually on exit ramps. I got very good at shifting to neutral/turning the car off and on/shifting into drive all while suffering through the lack of power steering. It usually freaked my passengers out.

It ended up being the EGR valve, a costly but very necessary fix.

Sounds like a vacuum problem it could be the EGR valve check all the vacuum lines for wear or cracks replace any that do have loose fit and cracks no connection point should be left open without a plug of some kind.
Does the steering wheel really lock ? or does it just become very stiff because there's no power to the power steering pump due to the motor dieing . When the key is in the on position it unlocks a pin inside the steering column manually to allow the steering wheel to turn side to side.

could be a faulty safety start switch, as far as the steering wheel locking up,, most the time thats just caused by turning off the key while the wheels are up against a parking curb or something thats putting pressure on the wheels, if the key won't turn Just pull it from side to side as you wiggle the key , I'd have the safety switch in the shifter checked, and maybe adjusted

Often this is caused by the steering wheel binding against the lock in the column.
Try to let go of the steering when you come to a stop parking before you turn the key off

1994 ford probe, steering wheel locks upand I can't turn the ignition.


Make sure there is no tension on your steering wheel, ie; wheels are straight and the steering wheel is not sitting sideways.
Sometimes the pressure from any kind of bind on the front wheels/rack and pinion, can cause the ignition to lock. Especially when parked on inclines.

Steering ignition switch lock


Jiggle the steering wheel back and forth while trying to get the key back in. Keep jiggling the wheel while turning the key until it all works out.
