Sorry bit confused with your post, the steering is faulty but you mention the battery is fine but it won't turn over. 

Do you mean the steering fault is stopping the car from starting? Any fault codes or dash warnings?  

Possible a steering angle sensor signal is missing and preventing the car to start but need more info pls.

Meanwhile just to update I had the car towed to my local mechanic the AA had to put the gearbox into emergency neutral manually to tow it away as everything was dead except for the air con and stereo . My mechanic tried to plug it into his machine but the car would not communicate he did mention he could only communicate to an ecu in the steering column but nothing else he is currently still trying to get the whole system to "wake up" he even tried emergency mode but to no avail, any input guys greatly appreciated.

Steering Rack will need to be replaced my friend.... There is a known issue re this. Google: faulty steering rack, cayenne and won't start. I spent thousands chasing this on my first CTT several years ago before it was a more common issue.

 

Best to you.
