My '96 Lexus recently started to make squeaking noise when starting the car in the morning. noise comes almost continuously right after the ignition (for about 1 second). Then, when I turn the steering wheel to move the car, the squeaking noise continues as long as I turn the wheel. I wonder what's wrong with the car and what needs to be done?

Yep loose fan belt for steering (smaller of two belts) or the larger alternator belt may be a little loose.
