there have three factors may be cause the problem,

It sounds like a power steering pump problem. If you get low on power steering fluid the power steering pump will have a loud whining sound. The upper and lower control arm bushings will make a squeaking sound. And they would only make it when turning. I am sure that your power steering fluid is low.

The easiest way to do this would be just to check all the fuses. You can do this by pulling each one out and inspecting for burn marks and breaks on the inside. If you would, next time state the car model. Good luck.

You can't remove the front headrests from 2009 or later BMW's without first disconnecting internal wiring that runs inside 1 of the posts for each headrest to the inside the seat. This wiring is part of the Active Restraint Safety System that was new for 2009.

If you force it and break the wire you will at a minimum need to spend about $300 at the dealer to resplice the wire by taking the back off the seat.

I would check your tps(Throttle positioning sensor) to see if its bad. That's what it sounds like.

If you are referring to the coolant thermostat, though I'm not familiar with your model, basically thermostats are located in a housing on the engine where the top radiator hose connects to that housing. For the most part, they are pretty easy to replace. If you have an overheating problem with your car, I hope this fixes it.

You can wax it all you want, Just wash it at the car wash or with dawn dish soap to remove any other waxes already on the car.

Air flow sensor could be a problem.
Every time EML comes on the car computer will put the system into limp mode. To avoid any further damage to the engine.

once switch off, isolated and re-start will re-run the program and clear it temporary.
Ideally you need to get the car plugged in to a Diagnostic computer and see what fault code are stored.
