There is brief intermittent electrical power loss to the radio, dashboard, and steering on my 2004 Camry. It happens most often when turning the steering wheel and sometimes only the radio goes out. Everything comes back on after only a second or two and no resets are necessary.

not certain but there may be two fuses behind the radion, under the dashboard, my radio is that way. One fuse is for power and the other fuse is for memory retention front panel display etc. Maybe yours is that way too??
Consult your ICEhandbook and also the internet for details of your radio/audio device.s specification
If the steering wheel is turned to full lock position, the power steering system is being exposed to thousands of PSI for a brief moment until the pressure relief valve kicks in and allows pressure to bleed off. Which is the hissing/groaning noise you may have heard before. That brief moment of extreme pressures is the most common causes of failures in power steering pumps along side dry steering while not moving. If you have shudder going both ways, you will need a new power steering pump because it is worn out. If you get a shudder in one direction and not the other, then you will need a power steering "Rack and Pinion" assembly. If it was my car, I would do both at the same time so you don't have to worry about the other component going out later on and starting the whole process over again. I hope this info helps!
It sounds like you have a fan belt slipping Check the condition of your belt,or belts. If the belt appears old, and weather cracked, it should be replaced. If the belt is slipping, you would temporarity lose power steering, and the water pump would stop pumping coolant causing the engine to overheat.
You need to state the problem more precisely. If it won't budge at all, try rocking the steering wheel back and forth as you try to unlock it. A brief shot of penetrating oil (not WD-40) will lube the timblers and lock if rocking doesn't work. Beyond that; call a locksmith. Ray (garage owner)
I think you may have a problem with your electric assisted power steering motor. Is the loss in power only when your are making sharp turns to the right or left?
Do you hear any load noises or squeling sounds?
You should have it inspected, Don't want you to lose control while driving.
