    try disconecting everything you undone and reconecting!, i found i had to undo this (yellow square) and move it when i replaced the alternator, dont try to clear present codes as it may not start after!, could always disconect the battery for 1/2 hour.

    steering's electric so going hard was normal. try pulling a bit of slack on everything youve disturbed ie so the cable's not pulling at the conectors (ive had this b4).

    ive had simular type fault codes with such as cam shaft sensor open circuit! and its usually been that the cable is tight or pulling at the plug. worth a try.
