Question: steering wheel squeek

i just got an 02' Chrysler Sebring lxi. When the car is parked and i turn the steering wheel just a little from left to right i hear a nonstop squeaking noise from somewhere around the front tires, until i stop turning the wheel. its also bit harder to turn the wheel when the car is parked. But when im driving it's fine, the noise is gone and the steering wheel turns normally. Only when i turn the wheel all the way to the left or right when driving is when i hear the same squeaking noise again.

That sounds like the power steering pressure relief valve. Check your fluid level, and make sure it's not burnt or has metallic specks in it. If it does, have the power steering fluid flushed. Otherwise, it sounds like it's working normally.

Unless you're talking about a belt noise. Have the belt inspected as well to make sure. If you're not sure when the belt was last serviced, it's a good idea to replace it.
