Car Batteries
Plymouth Voyager

Why would the oil and battery light come on and the steering become very stiff while driving a Plymouth Grand Voyager in a major storm?

water will splash on the belts [power steering, alternator, etc.], causing them to slip, as if greasy, not turning the pulleys. get new belts.

One cause why a Plymouth Voyager sputters is because the driver may be holding the gear shift button, unnecessary for going through drives 1 to 4. The gear shift button is a safety feature that keeps from reversing while driving.

Sure you can but I would highly recommend against it if you want this engine to last. That is not the correct weight oil for your Plymouth. You should use SAE 5w30 weight. Your Plymouth will get very little lubrication at startup using this heavy oil. This will cause premature engine wear and hard starting in cold temperatures. You are not driving a race car you are driving a van.

No. Steering is just one element of driving, but there are a lot more, such as controlling the speed and being vigilant as you drive.

I had a 1999 Grand AM same thing happened to me. A while after that i was driving and the radio lost power, then the power steering. I had the alternator and battey replaced and that fixed the problem.

you may need more power steering fluid.
