Why would my check battery light go on the off again at a stoplight & then when I was parking my power steering went out and came back?
Do you

Sounds like your drive belt maybe slipping or your belt tensioner is going bad. You may wanna have that checked right away.

I dont think so but get an estimate and shop before you have it done. I would have it inspected to make sure that is the problem. Another thing I thought of to is the water pump could be leaking and causing the belt to slip.

There is a fusible link for alternator thatcould be partially broken or ready to go causing this. There is also a fuse in underhood fuse box i've pointed bothout in arrows, check those.

Also, you should check the connections at the alternator and battery. A loose connection can cause this.

I think your on the something. The circuit seems bad and had no current. Now I gotta find which wire that is.

Please let me know if you have any more ideas or suggestions.

Thanks.

Check to see if the fusible link is burnt up going to the alternator it may be by the starter and check alternator sensing fuse underhood fuse box. Also ign fuse in dash

You likely either broke a drive belt or tensioner for that belt has failed. Which would cause your power steering pump and alternator to stop working. So no help to steer and no power to charge battery.
