Hi, be sure you have the power stering fluid to the max level, check the condition of the belt if is in good condition adjust it properly ,when the car turns ,it adds more presure to the pump and if the belt is not tight it will slips and make that screching noise ....good luck...

If the engine is running when turning steering then it sounds like a loose alternator drive belt, if the engine is switched off and the noise is coming from inside the car at the steering wheel area it will be the steering wheel coil spring swicth gear

Steering wheel is locked. can't turn key


Try rocking the steering wheel slightly (it should turn just a little bit) while gently trying to turn the key. Sometimes if you turn the ignition off (to the lock position) too quickly, the steering wheel will be forced to turn slightly by the power steering pump as the engine comes to a stop. When turning the ignition off in the future, only turn the key back 1 notch to shut the engine off first. Then, after the engine has stopped, finish turning the key to the lock position.
