I have gold edition V-8 cougar, without warning I can only turn steering wheel 1/4-1/2 turn and no more also battery warning light is on but no other electrical problems are present. what is the most likely cause of this issue?

This sounds like the drive belt came off, causing the lac of power steering and the alternator to stop working. Was that the problem?
