You may need to add power steering fluid or maybe the belt is too tight/loose, try spraying some wd-40 on the belt....

check the tention on the power steering belt it may be a little loose. also make sure you have enough fluid.

You should check the tension and power steering fluid level as mentioned above but i would not recommend using wd-40 because it can cause the belt to slip and wd-40 glazes the outside causing the inside to wear faster and unless you take a close look the belt will appear fine but it's actually worn, use a belt dressing they're at any automotive retail store for like 2 dollars

Is it a solid squeak or a pulse? If its a pulsing squeak, its the PS belt... If it is a constant, it is the alternator/AC belt.
