Steering problem
2001 Mercedes Benz 320e 6 cyl 94,000 miles

My alternator/battery light came on while I was driving. So I pulled over, so all of a sudden my power steering locked on me and couldnt turn car. As if the car was off. My car never cut off on me, it turns on as normal. What could be the problem? Is it the alternator or the belt? I dont want to spend an arm and leg im a single mother.
