I think the guy above me was saying have the alternator checked when it starts going bad sometime it will send a code every once in a while not all the time autozone or most auto parts place can check the alternator for free to see if its preforming correctly no charge may be the prob. Good luck

    Ok if you haven't fixed it yet take it to auto-zone or advance auto and have them run a test on your alternator, you will have to take it off and take it up their not sure if they can do it while its still on, call ahead and ask.

If it does it at random its possibly a charging problem. Load test at autozone for free.

My abs light will all of a sudden go on while im driving and then right after that i will loose all power on my car the battery is then completely drained its so dead it wont even click to turn over


If the battery goes dead while driving, that means that the "charging system" isn't doing the job. The alternator may be fine, but there's something not connecting correctly. Have a competent mechanic check the full charging system.

Car shuts off, battery light comes on, steering wheel locks up, all while driving


I am assuming you mean you loose power steering when the steering wheel locks up, which would be a normal event if the engine dies. Same goes for the battery light since the alternator would stop charging the battery.
Someone will need to figure out if you are loosing fuel or spark when the engine dies, then troubleshoot the problem. It may be difficult to find if the mechanic can not duplicate the problem in the shop.

sounds like your alternator isnt functioning correctly.
you can have this tested at a local garage, normally for free. when the engine is running, it should show around 14 amps on a multimeter. also check the battery is serviced. check the fluid levels and a full charge

the Body Control Module is bad. If your security light goes off later then most likely.

My battery be drained


I agree with you, it sounds like the alternator isn't charging the battery. Most parts stores offer free check of your charging system, with advice on what is wrong and what needs to be replaced (you should replace your mechanic along with your alternator.)
