    Sounds more like the alternator may be shagged & you've just run your battery flat driving the car with the lights on.

    looking at £60 plus if you were to buy from ebay and fit yourself if you go to a garage you could probably double that with the cost off fitting and the higher price you will pay for an alternator i would 2nd guess that is as your power steering runs from your alternator not the battery

    Apparently the Alternator's a common problem.

    You can get them repaired/refurbished for cheaper than new.
