James, many thanks to show me the right track.
After I randomly tighten up all connectors in the engine compartment and tidy up all wiring with cable ties, I have power steering when I switch to "Reverse". The radio refuses to sound but the power windows work! The car is kind of back to normal now.
The steering pump makes a lots of tapping noise when I turn my steering wheel either in Park, Reverse or Drive but quiet when I do not touch it. Looks like a new pump might be needed but it is unwise to keep pouring money into a 12 years of car. I think it is time to shop for another one.
