The alternator is not charging the battery.

Consider a replacement.

Cheers.

I wouldn't think so since usually power steering is hydraulic. Check the voltage on your battery, it should be above 12 but below 13 volts I believe. If you have no power steering at all, it most likely will be your power steering pump, ouch...

Why does my battery light and brake light come on while I'm driving and the power steering shuts off?


The motor is shutting off, better find the problem before it dies while you are pulling out in front of a semi and you end up dead.

When I first start up my 1995 Toyota Corolla 5-speed, there is a whirring noise. It seems more prominent when the car is cold and when I turn the steering wheel at that time. Also, the battery light has...


for the whirring noice, check for the power steering fluid level, if it's low refill with power steering fluid to the propper level. If the level its fine and the noise continues you have to tighten the engine belts via the tensioner bearings. As for the battery light it's probably letting you know that the alternator is failing, when the light comes on it means that in that precisse moment the alternator isn't charging the battery and that could lead you to a dead battery. (The alternator has a line that it's in charge of activating the battery light if this cable is loose that could make the light go on, secure that cable and if the light never comes on then the alternator is fine) Hope that helps

Hi sounds like you have a belt snapped causing the power sterring pump to fail and stopping the battery recieving a charge from the alternator, should be an easy fix with replacement belt

2005 mini cooper battery was dead, bought new one and now will not crank. Radio and lights come on.


Have you looked into the PSP (Power Steering Pump) relay, or the cooling fan? This problem has been know to create issues and lead to a dead battery. For more information, read this forum of MINI owners, there are quite a few with your issue, and they are trying to get a recall. the 2005 MINI's also have a headlight recall.

Not cold out,battery light on with loss of power


Battery light ON means either battery not charging (alternator stopped working) or battery not accepting charge (dead cells in battery-need replacing).

However, your power steering ALSO works on a belt system. Check the alternator belt and the power steering belt. They may be the same one, or they may be separate.

Hope this helps.
