Asked by Apr 07, 2017 at 12:30 PM about the 2006 Lexus IS 250 RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2006 Lexus I S2 50 I was driving
yesterday and all of a sudden I smell
something burning I thought it was my
belts on my vehicle but I also noticed the
power steering got very hard that I wasn't
able to turn and when I turned up the car
now it doesn't turn back on do you know if
it's just the battery or should I replace the
alternator as well please let me know if
anybody had this problems before

Could be a wiring issue. But since the power steering was effected, I'd say it's related to the serpentine belt. I'd remove the serpentine belt and spin the pulleys by hand to see which one doesn't spin. That will tell you what component might be the issue, be it the alternator, or belt tensioner, etc. Look at all the wiring as well. If your not mechanically inclined, then have it towed to your nearest garage for repair.
