I think I would have an experienced mechanic properly replace the power steering pump, replace the tensioner, then put it back together with a new serpentine belt.

I think that the hard steering and the charge light is telling you that the drive belt is missing or is badly need of replacing as the common unit to both your problems is the drive belt.

How do you change a power steering belt

Loosen the bolts that attach the power steering pump to the bracket. then push the pump down. this should make the belt loose enough to get off. then put the new belt on. take a pry bar and stick between the motor and the power steering pump through the top. push on the pry bar to raise the power steering pump and tighten the belt. while pushing on the pry bar to keep tension on the belt tighten the bolts that you loosened and you've changed your power steering belt. this can be done by one person, but it's a lot easier with two.

Those belt that came loose are power steering belt and alternator belt.
One of the belt might broke off and needs replacement and the other one might only been dislocated and came out from the pulley, either way, you have to check first the condition of the remaining belt if it needs to be replace too.
You could ask your dealer or any toyota parts dealer for the belts you needed.
Hope that hold everything!
Thanks for using Fixya!

No power steering, it stays real hard to turn the steering wheel

Check to see if your leaking any power steering fluid. If theres no fluid leak from your car then the problem is the power steering pump needs to be replaced. The job is not too hard, If you need some tips to replacing the pump just write me back.

It should be either on the alternator,power steering pump or the a/c pump.You will see slotted holes in any I have stated.You loosen them and there should also be a long bolt that goes down to another bolt like a "T".after you loosen the slotted bolts up you will tighten that up and it will tighten the belt.If you don't have the long bolt you'll use a pry bar on the part i stated earlier to pry the belt tight and while holding the pry bar tight as with the belt to tighten the bolts up and it should be tight now..If you have any other questions just re post and we'll help you.I hoped this helps.Have a great day..
