The power steering pump has gone bad. Consider replacing it because if serviced it will still show this sign in a little while.

its due to low/no fluid level in the power steering reservoir.Check the fluid in the power steering. If it is low the car will make noise when you turn the wheel. the internal parts gets rubbed hard and noise occurs. refill the fluid and let it reset for some time then try it will get the fluency to move smooth and noise will get stopped.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution

When you checked the power steering fluid level were there any indications of excessive foaming? There are three things that would cause a whining noise from the power steering. 1- low fluid (you checked that so that is not the culprit), 2- loose steering drive belt (you should not be able to press down on the belt more that about one inch between the steering pump pulley and the crankshaft pulley), 3- power steering pump bearing worn out.

UNLESS U KNOW HOW TO DISARM THE AIRBAG DON'T FOOL WITH IT, IT CAN INJURE YOU IF IT GOES OFF! I ALSO THINK YOU HAVE A DEFECTIVE STEERING RACK ASSMEBLY, THIS IS THE CAUSE OF THE HARD STEERING EFFORT, HAVE BEEN A FORD DEALER TECH FOR 30 YEARS KNOW THIS CAR VERY WELL. ANY FRONT END SHOP (LIKE TIRE STORES) WILL CHECK THIS OUT FOR FREE AND GIVE U AN ESTIMATE TO REPAIR THE RACK.
