Power steering issue with 56 1.9 multijet

Hi guys, wonder if you can help or advise me.

I have a 56 multijet sporting that has recently developed an issue. I start the car and for a moment the car is fine, then suddenly I have a host of warning lights, eps, engine !management, hill start, traction control lights all come on, the steering becomes very very heavy and it's like driving an M1 Abraham's. Any ideas what my issue is, for all this to happen at the same time I am inclined to believe it is an electrical problem associated directly with the fuse box?

Thank you in advance for your time to help me.
After owning a long string of French sports cars, 172, 205 GTI Mi16, 182 Trophy, 197 cup 172 cup, 182FF.... The Italian stallion 1.4 T-Jet... after years off the road I find myself back in an Exotica red M-Jet....... And I love it :-)

Check the alternator and cables for corrosion.
