It sounds like the fan belt broke or the alternator is discharging

I am having the same problem. Everyone says it is the alternator. Taking it to the dealer to have them check it out.

Chevy cavalier 2002 shut off while driving, power steering went out and brakes. i turned car off and it restarted what was it and how can i fix it?


Ther is a problem with some computers in that they shut down the engine for no apparent reason. This problem hounded Kia owners as the engine just stopped at lights but restarted with no problems. Check for any fault codes and check for circuit problems with alternator as some cpu's get their power directly from the alternator and it has to be full voltage or they sense a power failure and shut down.

Loss of power steering and eps light coming on ,on vauxhall meriva 2006.


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Sounds like you lost your drive belt on the vehicle. Check to see if you still have a drive belt. Without a drive/serpentine belt you will get exactly what you have described. I'm just guessing but this is the first thing I would check. Hope it's something that simple for you and that you didn't get your engine too hot and I was able to help.

It sounds like you have more than one problem. If the steering wheel is difficult to turn it means the steering pump is not working. Check in the engine compartment and see if the fanbelt is still in place. I think it may have come off since that battery light indicates that the alternator is also not working and both the alternator and power steering pump are belt driven. Post if you have further problems.

Sounds like a belt come off, that drives your alternator & power steering as well.
