Default No Start / Steering lock problems? Unknown. Help!

Hey guys, started having some weird problems with the Z. Dropped it off for paint, started up and drove fine, was able to turn off easily as soon as I reached paint shop. Car done, had to jump start it, but started up fine. Expect when I got home I couldn't turn the car off. Pressing the start button only turned off all dash lights but they would immediately come back on after 2-3 seconds. I ended up stalling it and pulling the battery to turn the car off.

Its weird, the steering isnt locked at all, I can turn the car to the "ON" position, but when trying to start nothing happens. The dash lights usually turn on when I get to the "ACC" position but nothing there either.

Im wondering what it could be, mainly thinking its the common steering lock issue since my yellow / red key lights were on, so I tried to do the fuse pull, but no dice. same thing. -- Still unk, maybe?

Heard It could've been the main fuse that connects to the battery, replaced that and added with new terminals and all, nothing.

My mechanic friend is saying it could possibly be the clutch switch preventing the starter to do its job, but im not too sure if thats it; ill change it anyway since its a 15$ fix.

Super weird.

Just noticed today as soon as I connect the battery that the fuel pump primes, which it shouldnt do until I atleast place it into ACC right? Honestly dont know wtf this is lol.... I can just buy another steering module off of ebay if thats the fix, but not sure if thats the problem...

Also not sure if they are related but these are the only codes im throwing :
