I'm guessing that year would have EPAS ( ELECTRIC POWER ASSISTED STEERING ) . If so a low battery can cause this .I would suggest charging the car battery first and see if this rectifies the fault before getting to involved in other possible causes . With such a low mileage and lack of use , battery condition could be down . If not that , get back and will suggest other possible options .
