Driving down highway and steering wheel took the car left, lost control and crashed. Entire wheel and axle was off vehicle. Lucky that the driver airbag opened as there was an open recall on it for possible defect.

The engine stalled while driving( speed 5-10mph). Steering wheel immediately automatically locked, lost control over the car.the computer showed a problem with the battery (the sign was displayed for a few seconds). Pushed the brakes - brakes worked. Removed the key and started the car again, the car started up and everything has stabilized.

Upon turning the vehicle, the engine starts up normally. However as soon as the engine is started up, in park mode, the steering wheel instantly begins to violently and out of control shake, vibrate, twists, and shake the whole vehicle. The act does not stop until the vehicle is turned off. This happens for an additional three to four times until the vehicle is turned off, and steering wheel is turned either way until you feel it lock into place or click into place. This happens at least once a week. There is video of the incident.
