did this happen after a jump start ?

Did not have a jump start but do have the service stablitrak message on
Expert:  Gary replied 1 year ago.

with the big fuse being good and that message on there has to be codes set in the electric steering computer or the ABS module causing this problem most of these have codes for the steering system and it ends up being a module and steering motor on the steering column and a few rare with steering posisiton failures

its best to have a shop read the codes for you and if they are the module or the motor both needs to be replaced

if there are any AB S codes those code numbers would have to be diagnosed
