Comment 1
Warning lights, it starting happening when we had to replace the alternator, then the battery, we did this 3 times. We figured the power steering pump leakage was creating the problem. However we're not sure. Thanks for the feed-back. -

go to auto zone and have them scan the codes at n/c and post them -
Answer 2
Yes. The power steering fluid leak eventually shorts out the alternator,making all the dash lights go crazy. My 1990 ls400 is going for 3rd alternator and 2nd power steering unit. -
