Cause - The "squealing noise" you describe is most likely a loose power steering belt. As you turn a greater load is placed on the power steering pump as it must work harder to pump fluid. A loose belt would explain the sudden loss of power steering as well as the noise you are hearing. Solution - Tighten your power steering pump belt.
