Steering wheel, ABS, handbrake light kept flashing, Stalling and power cuts
2015 Volkswagen Polo 1.6 tsi

2015 VW Polo 1.6 Sedan... Had new CV joints installed, tie rod ends, brake pads and new battery... Drove for 29 km's, it was starting to get dark, turn headlights on they were dim, wipers were slow.. Continued driving, after pouring gas, steering wheel sign came on as well as abs, airbag and handbrake sign kept flashing. Steering wheel became super heavy and car stalled and switched off, what could be the problem or the cause ? It's really frustrating,
