Hi,

I see a lot of issues with both the positive and negative battery cables casing the charge warning light to come on. Have the dealer voltage drop both cables before replacing any other components. I doubt the problem is the ECM for this concern.

You need to Test alternator as well.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

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.

I have a 1993 audi 100s and i put power steering fluid in it yesterday and it starts no problem i can drive it doesn't hesitate. But when i go to make a turn it's so hard i literally have to use both hands...


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.
