    simple answer no

    correct diagnosis - ur alternator and/or battery has gone tits up

    when the battery/alternator dies - the PAS is shut down in order to maintain vital battery power due to the intense drain the electro hydraulic PAS system causes.

    Best get your alternator and battery checked out pronto

    The battery light u saw indicates the charging system has a fault and that battery charging is no longer occurring (most likely cause is a dead alternator)

    Make sure of course that the auxillary drive belt which runs from the crank and feeds both the alternator and aircon (if fitted) has not just slipped off/snapped

    Good luck
