Power steering pump issues

As in my other post I am getting both brake warning lights on and no speedo reading so alternator?? This is intermittent. When the lights are on I assume alternator is not throwing a charge and I found the light is more than just a warning I have no ABS. when the lights are out all is fine but I get a grinding noise from the power steering pump. When I checked inside the reservoir the PS fluid was frothy. Totally airated. Could this be linked as they both run of aux belt?? Also have oil cooler leak in that corner could this be throwing oil on the belt causing this?? Help

I think the speedo gets its signal from the abs system, which would link with the brake warning lights. You probably have a abs sensor fault. Ideally get the codes read with alfadiag/fiatecuscan which will tell you which one is faulty.
How is the ps fluid level? Either the level is low and causing cavitation, or the pump is faulty. I cont think how else air would get into the system, nor how this is related to the other problem
