have you checked the fan/ serpentine belt to make sure that it isn't broke? if this just started happening, it is most likely the belt ( altenator and water pump run off the same belt)

How do u fiT a fan belt on a 55 plate ford focus

Loosen the adjustment bolt on the alternator, remove old belt, fit new one and stretch it slightly with the adjustment of the alternator until you have 2mm of deflection. Tighten up the bolt and take her for a run to charge the battery properly.

Battery light came on,and stirring became hard toturn.sterring

battery light will come on if there is a prob with your altenator or your battery...

firstly check if you still have a fanbelt, it may have come off and this will cause both of these problems and eventualy cause your car to overheat aswell

if there is a problem with the altenator seizing etc it may effect your power steering pump causeing steering to be hard to turn, observe if there is anything abnormal about the drive belt opperation (noise, vibration, spinning slowly, or appears buckled etc...) if so then you will need to remove the belt and check all the pulleys (prob start with the altenator)

Change moter alt belt keeps breaking

Hi the altenator belt? if it keeps snapping then your altenator is rather starting to seize up or its not fitted correctly, normally if its squeking its to loose.

Spin the altenator by hand and see what it sounds like, if its hard to turn or noisey that the fault.

hope this helps.
