Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
I'm assuming this is a diesel. If you're getting a hum when applying the brakes and turning the steering wheel then most likely you're hearing the power steering pump. It could be a brake booster or steering gear issue but it's more likely to be the pump itself or low fluid.
Have you checked the power steering fluid level?
