HELP PLEASE!!! dead battery= power steering problem????
i got back into my car and when i went to start it it turned over for a split second but did not start.i figured, dead battery. i got it jumped, let it run for like 5 min at 3000rpm and the went back to idle. when i turned my lights on i guess it put a load on the alternator and then stalled. so jumped it again let it run for like 10min and then reved it up a little and turned the lights on. then i started to drive around the parking lot and power steering was kinda off and on and the lights were flikering and dimming when i was turning and stuff. then it stalled again when i turned. jumped it again and drove home very carefully with off and on pwr str (right down the road). so right now i am hoping its just a dead batt and have it charging over night . i have some lights and an airhorn but all of those are fused could it be a short maybe? i will report back in the morning when i know the batt is charged. why would this effect the power steering?
