2.4 159

No Power, key stuck, water levels

Hi All

SO two weeks ago my 159 2.4 had the power steering belt fail, the plastic coolant plug failed too. I managed to get the work done under the warrenty from the garage I purchased it from.

Car has been fine for the week it has been back, until i get a phone call from the wife today telling me

Car would not start
key stuck in ignition (came out after pressing start a couple of times)
warnign light saying to much water in raiator
air bag light on

I am going to get it transported back to the garage, i asume the battery is low on volts but as it has been on a few long drives over the weekend could the alternator be damaged? any thoughts?

Too much water in the radiator? Have a check on the coolant levels, wondering if it means the water/ coolant ratio is wrong, or simple volume, did not realise it could determine the ratio though.
