On the way home while sitting iin traffic. My Rear Diff Temp light, brake light and the battery light all came on and I appear to have no power steering either. Anyone got any ideas?

Sounds like alternator belt snapped, have you had a look around under the bonnet?

Nah not yet, It's a bit dark and cold I was thinking that could be the prob. I will look in the morning. Do Halfrauds sell them?

same situation

I had the same lights go on: r.diff temp, e-brake and battery light (alternator), however I didn´t loose my powersteering. Checked the alternator belt and it seem fine, no slippage either. So I popped out the alternator plug, (no clue what it is, maybe just a sensor) and saw that it was corroded. Cleaned the male and female plugs and put it all back together. After that the lights went off and haven't come on since. Thanks to this forum I have learned alot about my frosty s-turbo.:biggrin:
