Sounds like both U0100 and U0126 could be due to the steering column module (SCM) being incorrectly connected or defective. If the SCM isn't connected or working, you'd lose anything on the "driver's" side of the SCM, such as the steering wheel controls, horn, cruise control, turn signals, air bag, high beams, and wipers. Sounds like it matches your symptoms. Have you done any work around the steering wheel/steering column recently? If you have a telescoping steering column, try unlocking it and pushing it back in towards the dashboard (retracted position) to see if this makes a difference.
If the steering angle sensor can't be read, the traction control system won't be properly operational since it needs to know which way the wheels are turned to be able to properly modulate the brakes.
