DREAM CAR'S DRIVING ME NUTS!

1989 Jaguar XJ6

Electrical problem
1989 Jaguar XJ6 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

I bought it as is, so I guess I deserve the problems. The control panel doesn't work - my dad says all I need is to have it calibrated, get new fuses, but his friend says it's an electrical problem. This isn't the prob that's driving me crazy, although it might be part of it. When I make a hard right or left turn, the car will often just cut off and it's like the steering wheel is locked. I have to restart it, usually in N. It is driving me nuts - my dad and his friend claim the engine is sound, so what could be the issue here? And is it a demon to get fixed? I can't afford to spend more than the $1000 I paid for the vehicle. Thanks for any advice and tech help you can give me!
