I had power steering pump replaced about 3 months ago. I started getting a squilling noise at start-up and short ride distance, about a week ago. I thought maybe the belt just needed tightening. This morning the power steering stopped working. I checked fluid, good. Noticed top belt was not turning at all. What is most likely the problem? Thank you, M. Clemons

Remove the belt and turn the power steering pump pulley by hand. If it is not turning, the pump has seized.
