    I get a high pitched whine as I initially turn my wheel. But thats the mechanism actually working that gives off the whine. Once on full lock I get a 'crackly modem type sound' but thats because I'm at the very extremety of the steering.
    Have you checked your power steering fluid level to make sure you've got some? (obviously without any you'd loose PS all together but as it gets low the system may be complaining at you)?

    Sorry I can't help further
