Either the pump or steering box has failed or you are low on fluid. First check the fluid level and look for areas of leakage either at the pump, along the lines or at the box. The boxes seldom fail so if it is not a leakage and lack of fluid problem, it is most likely the pump.

After going through a water puddle, my steering wheel locks up on my '98 Plymouth Voyager. Any way to prevent this from happening again, other than staying away from the puddles?

Take a look at splash shield coverage at belt and steering pump area, you may have a piece broke off. A new belt, with proper tension should help as well.

Check your power steering fluid. If low it whines and is related to engine speed.

Replacing the Power Steering

belt is cheap. power steering pump is cheap (find a good used one a salvage yard) power steering rack is a bit more expensive and more involved to replace. you really need to know what is bad. make sure the fluid is full first. any noises?
