Ok sounds like you possibly shorted out the starter has this been checked?
No it should not but I would still check the starter .The cluster went dead after power steering fluid went everywhere correct ?
Ok do me a favor make sure the vehicles battery is full charged if so disconnect the battery and reconnect it to see if there si any difference.Let me know.
No it will not affect the battery if the starter is bad. Sounds like something definitely shorted out if this all happened after the power steering issue .
