It worth checking your alternator output and battery voltage as I believe this can cause issues. But fuses etc are the best place to start as stated above. If you restart the car does this still occur? Do you have the warning on the dashboard?

Welcome.

A good list of faults to keep you amused!

As to the loss of power steering, I have little knowledge but I would check the common sense things of fuses and fluid level. There is a big fuse connected with the power steering in the passenger footwell as well as fuse 38 in the fuse box. The fluid reservoir is under the near side headlight. Beyond that I suppose check the earth on the power steering pump.

Edit. Second attempt at this post.

Yes, lift carpets, quarter turn on fixings for aluminium "triangular" cover, remove and an Aladdin's cave will be revealed.
