The noise most are describing is the result of contacts on circular circuit traces rubbing. These contacts allow for power to the steering wheel buttons, the horn, and air bag. It has not been determined if some of the noise is also from the steering angle sensor which is used by the stability control system on those vehicles that have it. Remember this is an electric power steering system, not a hydraulic one. Some noise damping is likely lost as a result.
