    suspect you may have a voltage issue with either the alternator or the battery - the steering being turned operates the power steering pump which in turn is powered and resulting in a loss of electrical power to other items - check all of your earths and feeds
    it would be worth readig your battey with an amp meter
    off load
    under load
    and charging

    Mines does it and it had its alternator replaced with recall last year.

    Power steering pumps sap alot of power for idling speed its the same as switching the air con on/off at idle the rev counter drops/rises.
