I was driving on the highway all of the sudden the steering wheel became really stiff and a signal light came on that read DISCHARGE BATTERRY TURN OFF A/C FOR ENGINE SAFETY. So I pulled over because the van started to lose power. I checked under the hood and noticed that antifreeze had leaked from the water pump and the engine belt came off. So the next day I replaced the water pump, engine belt, antifreeze, and I also replaced the thermostat. So I took the van for a test drive the temperature gauge started to get to hot and I went back home and removed the thermostat. The next I drove the van without the thermostat for about 400 miles and noticed the temperature gauge was not reading and that signal light for A/C OFF FOR ENGINE SAFETY had turned on.

Have it scanned for both hard and soft codes. Make sure they pull soft codes. Let us know what they are.

Check the radiator and heater hoses for blockages. I can't visualize this exact model at the moment, so I'm not sure how difficult this is, but also see if you can check the radiator for blockages.
