Power steering lost, leading to a heavy and difficult to turn steering wheel can have these codes stored for the torque sensor failure.

C1400 torque sensor signal error.

C1413 torque sensor malfunction.

Before suspecting the torque sensor, check the two connectors on the ePAS ECU marked in blue (6&14) for corrosion or contamination.
