If your battery light is also coming on, I suspect an issue with your serpentine belt as that runs your alternator and power steering pump. Check all your pulleys, tensioner and the condition of the belt, something has failed or about to fail and that is what is causing the screeching noise.

Hi I've been having trouble with my car too. I've been having to jump it, and today while in line at a fast food restaurant it stalled and wouldn't start. I got it pushed to a parking spot, let it sit with the hood open for a good 20 mins. Went to start it again again and it started. The lady said she thought it was my belt too? I got home thank goodness, but scared to drive it again. Any ideas?
