SOURCE: Power steering pump
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.

Does it make the growling noise when the fluid is at the correct level? If it does, the noise is a warning that your power steering pump needs to be replaced.

No fuse, sorry. You likely have a bad pump. To test the pump, if you can squeeze the return line to the pump when the engine is running, the pump should wine.
