Sounds like you have an electrical short. The whiring sound is probably the fan for the heater / air conditioner. An electrical short in the steering wheel switch cluuster can be difficult to locate and it can have funny affects like you describe because it can put power onto other circuits (e.g. cause the lights to flash or the fan to spin).

If you are going to do the job yourself take things to pieces carefully and make a note so you know how to re-assemble them later. It may be worth buying a workshop manual if you can get one.

Megane Coupe knocking from Dash when Wipers turned on


Sounds like the wipers are over working or not secured properly, This can over work the motor for the wipers. Try checking the bolts connecting the wipers and the blades on the wipers for good contact this will be a good starting point.
