SOURCE: clicking in steering column
Check the lower steering column universal joint coupling needle rollers !
Open the hood, and get someone to wiggle the steering wheel, and using a good torch, check the lower steering column joint, for any free play, or if you can hear or feel, the clicking, and check all the clamp bolts and nuts.
A FixYa rating is appreciated ....Thank you !

The replacement of the steering column assembly will require a setup procedure for complete repair. This is done via a tech 2 scanner. A good dealer technician should know this.
Eletronic Power Steering (EPS) is one of the latest ideas to eliminate the fluid type power steering systems. It eliminates the power steering pump thus adding miles per gallon.

The noise you can hear is the motors still working but the worm nut has broken inside the steering column. The motors still work with the memory system you have but they are not moving the wheel as the worms are still turning but the nut which is attached to the steering column will be floating. Remove covers and check this before you order the new parts as i am informed that a full column is required in order to replace this little part. As it in no way affects the actual steering of the wheels you may be able to repair this without going to major expence. Hope this helps. The same happened with mine but i just wedged the steering in one place and left it. Its been two years now and i can still hear the two motors working every time i put in the ignition key but without the steering wheel adjustment. Ask yourself do you really need it
