Charge light on and no power steering

Postby Dion66 » Wed Sep 27, 2017 10:37 am

Hi all,

I've noticed a slight screeching sound in the mornings when I start my car, only last for a few seconds & today my charge light has come on and now don't have any power steering...

Just wondering if this could be the belt that charges the alternator and runs power steering as well ??

Anyone have this issue?

Open bonnet and check that the belt is still there. Loosen it off and check the alternator and ps pump still spin. Get a new belt, or if it's still ok, put back on with proper deflection distance.
