Check the serpintine belt,may be bad idler and your power steering fluid.

Since it happens when the lights are on the alternator is under load. Sounds like a slipping serpentine belt. Could be the belt itself is worn out or the belt tentioner is bad. HTH. -Jim

Probably the belt but the tensioner is not out of the question. Is there any wobble in the tensioner?
