Hello, unfortunatley on this EPAS electronic power steering assist system. The steering rack will need to be replaced. It is ost likely setting codes for the rack module failure. The module is part of the rack. The steering rack would need to be replaced and them module reprogrammed by a dealer and a wheel alignment performed. No work around on this type of system. When the module fails, it drops off the communication network and causes the other warning lights to come on
