Battery light and abs light on hard to steer overheating


sounds like you either lost your fan belt, or you have a seized up alternator, or belt tensioner. The fan belt [ drive belt ] turns the alternator to charge the battery, the power steering pump to make easy steering , and the water pump cooling your engine. Do you smell rubber burning? hear a squealing noise? or rattling noise. Open your engine bonnet, start the car up, and look at the drive belt and pulleys. They should all be turning. If this is the problem you will see something seized up. Also if you have let the power steering pump run out of oil, it may also be seized. Good luck with it

First my power steering went out, then my battery started going low and my engine overheated, all in a matter of minutes. What belt is it that I need to replace?


From the symptoms it sounds like one belt supplies the drive for all 3 units (power steering pump, alternator and water pump)
If you replace this belt (could be called power steering belt or alternator belt) then all should be fixed as long as engine did not overheat too much!

It sounds like you have a fan belt slipping Check the condition of your belt,or belts. If the belt appears old, and weather cracked, it should be replaced. If the belt is slipping, you would temporarity lose power steering, and the water pump would stop pumping coolant causing the engine to overheat.

Of course any belts that are missing should be replaced. If the engine overheated you probably do need to replace the thermostat as the temper has been changed.
