Hello

as you say its an electric motor on the steering for these, but you should be able to still turn the steering with it off?

if the wheel is completely immobile then its more likely to be the steering lock is still in place

but if you can move the wheel then yes its a EPS fault

1st thing to check is the state of the high power fuse ( 60A) for the EPS this should be in the under-bonnet fuse box and then check that the main battery connections are tight and clean

if this is OK then measure the battery voltage with the ignition off as it should be at least 12V and this should increase from this figure with the engine running

if the battery voltage is low then it may need to be replaced , as low battery voltage will result in the EPS being shut down
