There are a few things to try:
1.) Check the power steering fluid, the level of the fluid will be on a rather short dipstick, and in most cases the power steering fluid container is on or around the cylinder head.
2.) The power steering pump is bad. The power steering pump has a pulley connected to it, and a belt which should go to other pulleys. The belt could be the problem as well. What happens is the belt moves the pulleys and allows the power steering fluid to be pumped through the steering system.
If the light is on, and you still have power steering I would say the fluid is low.

Power srering fluid turned clay color


Yes, this is a problem. The clear power steering fluid is a mineral oil base and the red Lucas additive is petroleum base. Your car uses the red petroleum base, which is actually Dexron ATF (automatic transmission fluid). Lucas is great stuff, the person at the parts store just doesn't know their stuff. You need to flush the system to save your pump from going out very prematurely.

this system can be tested for codes, I would suggest you have the dealer do this test, all the parts are very expensive so guessing is not a good idea. most probale cause is a wheel motion sensor on the steering column.
