Driving my car my steering just died and the battery light came on. Car drives fine except for steering.

It is possible that your alternator has lost power by the belt and your charging light has come on. Your car may run until the battery runs out of charge. Maybe the same belt that powers the alternator also is for your power steering pump. Start by checking your belts.
Thanks. Since the car has been sitting for 2-3 years my husband was not surprised and is able to replace the belt and go from there. I was just shocked when it happened. Thank you for your response.
