I was at work this eve and my car wouldn't start. I got my husband to jump start my car. It started, however, after leaving it to run for a while I went to drive it and the steering wheel wouldn't turn also every time I tried to turn the wheel all the needles on the dashboard jumped all over the place. I turned the car off and tried to restart it but it would not start again. I am a home carer so need my car for work so any help would be great!

Sounds like dud battery or alternator not charging. Need to get both load tested.
