    Suddenly no power steering and LOTS of dash lights!!!!

    Today, while driving normally around town i felt my power steering give out while the car was running normally. I pulled over, checked my PS fluid (which was normal) and limped home. While my power steering went out i threw three dash lights: Break, Battery and Rear Diff all simultaniously. Any ideas what would cause all this to happen at the same time?

    right when the PS went out there as a slight and short lived burning rubber smell. What happened?? Ideas?
    If you ever go back in time, dont touch anything.

    The belt broke that drives your power steering pump and alternator.

    Most of the signs do point to the PS/alternator belt breaking, which I'm sure it did. However, why would the "rear diff" light come on?

    The same reason the brake light came on.

    I'm mainly regurgitating knowledge recently acquired in this thread:
