    Sounds like the alternator belt has snapped if you lost the power steering as well.

    This happened to me when my alternator failed at 99k. Best to get it tested, my battery went flat and even a jump start did not help because the car just went flat right away.

    Do you mean the pulley on the alternator? It's a clutch type so slips when turned backwards.

    No idea, my old one and new ones the same. I fitted the new one 2.5k ago and all has been well. What mileage did yours go at?

    Did you get strange popping now and then through the stereo before this? I have a feeling mine is going. Having some power issues.

    Mine went without any warning at all. Was just on the motorway at about 60mph, the car beeped and he battery light came up and within 2-3 miles later it all died and I coasted to a stop, could not even reach the next junction to get off at Strange that yours went at the same mileage, I was 99,970!
