Have you driven the car since the steering wheel fault code? It should clear after about 100yds of driving, normally.

Correct. You just go into coding on the head unit, and there are at least three bytes you need to set: one to tell it you have a sound system, one to set the speaker configuration to sound system as opposed to a 2-speaker or 4-speaker setup, and one to disable speaker monitoring. OBDeleven should label all these for you and they are the first few bytes of the coding.

- The AM radio will not tune to some values, i.e., it adjusts from 1125 to 1134, so will not allow me to listen to 1130. I'm not sure if there is a way to adjust a region code or something in the radio to address this. It's not fatal for me though, as I can listen to AM stations through TuneIn Radio.
That is a region issue and you will need to tell it you're in the US - AM stations in the US are 10kHz apart, but in Europe and elsewhere they're 9kHz apart. Chances are you can fix it while you're coding for the sound system.

- I'm getting a few fault codes, including one that says that the steering wheel direction sensor is not working. I get a yellow steering wheel light on the dash.
- The EBS "off" light (yellow wheels with squiggly lines) is active on the dash. Pressing the button on the console doesn't do anything.
As paul_c says, these appear whenever you disconnect the battery and the car just needs a short drive to calibrate itself.

Incidentally, the RCD330 is a genuine VW part - it's not no name. Cheers.
I had originally thought the same thing and was pleased to discover that I was wrong.
