Let's try resetting the steering angle sensor:
Turn the key to the on position and rotate steering wheel lock to lock (all the way to the left until it stops and then all the way to the right), then turn key off and then start the engine.
You might have to get the vehicle's computer scanned for trouble codes to make sure the electronic power steering control unit wasn't damaged.
First, let's try to reset all of the modules and start fresh. Disconnect both battery cables and hold them together for 30 minutes (wire tie them together so you don't have to stand there). This will clear all memory modules in the vehicle.
After 30 minutes reconnect the battery and then try the steering reset procedure like before, and then start the car.
Please let me know if you need additional info.
