I just lost power steering in my SAAB 9-5 '00. Also the "battery" light on the dash is lit. check fluid level - normal. Any suggestions. Appreciate all the help

I have had so many problems with both of my SAABs

Sounds like your serp belt came off; Is it a 4cyl?

the engine will run with a belt off but you'll overheat as the water pump will not move; further, the alternator will not charge and the power steering pump will not operate. It could be a broken PS line but you'd see fluid on the ground - easy to diagnose. Start with opening the hood as 95r suggests.

Thanks all. Got mobile mechanic to look at it. Sure enough, the AC compressor was not turning and the serpentine belt came off but not broken.

Any suggestions for links regarding replacing AC compressor
