Does it just kill like you shut the key off ?
If so I would say you have a loose wire or shorting wire in the ignition , that when you turn the steering wheel to the right( the side the igniton tumbler is on) it is catching a wire or shorting.
Please let me know what you find.

Left front weel makes loud noise, I did replace brak pads but look that something else is not working right, may it be bearing?

Wheel bearing noise can be identified as a growl type noise at highway speeds. Turn slightly left and right and note if the tone changes, this would indicate a failing bearing.

My weels are hard to turn is it the pump?

check your power steering fluid level. If it's low, or overfilled, get it to the right level. If it's at the right level, it's likely that you may need a new power steering pump

How to install Pwr Steering in 94 Mazda B2300 (same as Ford Rngr)

You'll also need to change the steering box. The stock axle should be okay to use. Be careful hooking up the new box and make sure it is centered, the same number of turns to the stop when you turn it left or right. Also make sure the pitman arm is the same length, on the Ranger, so the front end isn't out of whack, and check the clearance at the radiator and fan. Hope this helps.

Code- c1517. overheat protection mode not present

you might need to get your weels rebalenced that can sometimes cause the car to pull to one side than the other so go to a machanic to get the weels balanced

hope this helps

Lock cylinder problems

It is one of two things. The rod that connects from the tumbler or the pot metal hoop that actuates the rod and connects the tumbler to the rod. If the hoop is broken you will need to remove the steering wheel to gain access to the hoop. The hoops break in Fords all the time. They are very cheap to purchase. The steering wheel is removed first. Then the turn signal switch assembly. Then you have access to the broken hoop assembly I was telling you about. You will need a steering wheel puller to remove the steering wheel. Good luck.
