Steering wheel locked up

Hey guys, I was driving to work this afternoon and i went through a pretty big puddle and my steering wheel literally locked. It was almost like power steering was completely cut off or something. This has happened a few times before and I'd like to know if this has happened to anybody else

Thanks

When you went through the puddles water got on the belt and allowed it to slip. I've had it happen a few times too. Its more noticeable as the belt gets older. No worries.

Re: Steering wheel locked up

Oh ok. Any idea on how much a new belt would cost?
