Battery light comes on, power steering fails. Only happens when it's wet out. Already replaced the serpentine belt. Any other ideas?

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

A few weeks ago, my battery light randomly started flashing on and off and the power steering would fail temporarily. Rear defrost would shut off, power to the heater blower would lessen. This only happens when there are wet road conditions but not consistently. Ideas, please?

You could have a loose or dirty battery cable. Clean and inspect battery cables 1st. Could be a loose cable on the starter also.
