Hello, my name is***** you for the question. As long as the EPS light is on the steering will not function. You will need to read the EPS module using the correct scan tool to know for sure what is going on. Most of the time this is caused by a failure in the steering angle sensor in the steering column, but not always. Please let me know if you need more help.

Where is the steering angle sensor is located and can it be used how much more less ? And if I work on cars is it easy to be replaced ?
Thanks!

It is located in the steering column. It would have to be a new install and a then a factory scan tool would be needed to calibrate it.
