It is electronic power steering, the computer is sensing that there is a problem. You need to get the code read and then it can be further diagnosed.

Did a power streeing pump convert manual streeing into power streeing?

No. You need also a power steering "box", usually a rack and pinion type.

When turning streeing makes noise

I would like to help you with your problem. However, I have no idea what "streeing" is. If you meant to say STEERING, I would recommend that you check your belt tension and power steering fluid level.

Where to locate the power streeing filler to fill power power streeing

  • Open the hood and find the reservoir for the power-steering fluid. It will probably be labeled on the cap. If not, look near the belts for a pulley-driven pump with a plastic or metal reservoir on top.

    Open the cap. It may unscrew or pop off.

  • Check the fluid level (see illustration in Step 2). If the reservoir is made of clear plastic, look for full and low indicator lines on the outside. The cap will have a small dipstick attached if the reservoir isn't see-through. Wipe the dipstick clean with a rag and put the cap back on. Remove the cap and check the level on the dipstick. Your car may have both full hot and full cold indicators, as the fluid level will vary depending on whether the engine is cold or hot.

  • Add power-steering fluid as needed, using a funnel to avoid spilling. If the engine is hot, fill to the hot line. If the engine is cold, fill to the cold line.

  • Put the reservoir cap back on.

    The power streeing fluid is leaking at the point

    Clean off the area- try to identify the source of the leak.
    You may only have a split pressure line or a loose line connection.
    If you can't find or repair the leak, take it to a repair shop as it could lead to loss of power assistance.

    My power streeing pump is making noise , however there is fluild in it, but it leaks from the cap on the resovir . Is the pump bad or something eles is wrong.. the streeing wheel feels fine... tx

    power steering fluid loses viscosity and usefulness over time- I recomend replacing the power steering fluid, and using Lucas brand power steering stop leak, I swear by that stuff, My old caprice was losing all the power steering fluid EVERY single day! 2 truck size bottles of that gunk from lucas and it worked fine for over a year not so much as a drop. It is also over compressing in the sump, either too much or its foaming cause its broke down.

    Get some new fluid in there, top it up with Lucas, and have a nice day!

    Power streeing oil leeking under from car

    Your Camry uses ATF ( Automatic Transmission Fluid). Your going to have to get the leak repaired, common cause is the high pressure hose is leaking and soon it will fail 100% and your going to lose your power steering. Worst is the ATF is flammable and if it hits a hot spot like the exhaust manifold, it will catch fire. Good luck and hope this helps, and don't let the fluid get too low. Low fluid in your steering pump will cause damage.

    Sounds like you need a dealership. Those cars are very finicky, and require some special knowledge of how they work. It does sound like you have multiple problems though. Would venture to say your wireless control module is going bad. (alarm). Trans popping out of gear is an internal problem.
