Hi Rebecca. Thanks for reaching out to us tonight. When a vehicle stalls and loses electrical power like you’ve described, it can be very tricky to diagnose, since there are so many possible sources. In many cases, this can be caused by an alternator that is damaged, a loose electrical wire to an ignition system component, or even an exposed electrical wire that created a short circuit. The steering wheel can lock up when the engine stalls like this all of the sudden, so I don’t think anything is wrong with the steering system. I think your best option is to have a professional mechanic come to your location to complete an on-site inspection to attempt to replicate the symptom and determine what needs to be repaired to resolve this issue.
