Check the belt tensions under the hood. could have a loose belt. could be alternator bearings. the car should still be under warranty- have the dealership check it out. may not be covered, but may be another problem that still is? how many miles on it? may need serpentine belt replacement. have it checked out by a reliable dealer or mechanic- ask friends for references!
belt should have no more than 1" of 'slack' at mid-point- if more, then tensioner pulley may need adjusting. belt can stretch after a while, and start slipping!
good luck!

good luck!

How far can I drive once this warning light has appeared?

If it is the light for brake pads then I'd say replace them as soon as they start making squealing noises. That is if you wish to put it off.
If they make horrible noises then you are doing more damage to other components (rotors) which is much more expensive than the cost of brakes.

My steering on my truck is making a horrible squealing sound, what is causing that?

does it squeal in turns or any time the motor is running? If just in turns may be low on fluid or pump is getting ready to go. if all the time it may be the bearing that is under the belt pulley.

It sounds like your serpentine belt is going. I would have that checked out for wear and also have the pulleys that coencide with it checked as well.

My vehicle makes a horrible sound when coasting until i put my foot on the break

'88 Volvo 740GLE won't get past 30 mph

Horrible squeal. If my 740 made a horrible squeal I would be upset also. These ideas - timing belt has somehow slipped out of time. Easy check. One of the other belts are slowing the engine any of them can squeal: The alternator belt The power steering belt The fan belt. Does the noise occur only when driving? Does the engine sound normal when revving in neutral? Does turning on the lights or a/c affect the noise? Does the power steering work when car is standing? Is the squeal heard when turning the wheels. A logical diagnosis will identify and eliminate these easy to fix problems.
