Question about 2003 Mini Cooper
Power steering pump stays on after i turn of the car
It is not the pump that stays on its the fan if your hearing a wizzing sound that starts off low and progresses high very quickly. this stops when u turn ur car back on and continues once off but leave it off for a little while and it should stop i believe its a fan because my friends cobalt does the same thing

Air in lines. Start car and turn full left and full right several times. then let it sit till the foam is gone and top off the fluid and repeat.

Yes in most cases the pump rotor vanes cause this noise, there are additives that can help like one made by Lucas Oil, but if it is really whinning then that will be a watse of money, if you end up putting on a rebuilt pump make sure to flush all the old fluid out or the pump you just spent your hard earned money on will get noisey to.
