Does it go away after restart(s)? It could be caused by a low hydraulic fluid, check your fluid level. Or it could also be the early sign of a weak battery. I have seen it occasionally on my car.

And that is power steering fluid, as that is used by the active roll bars also. Use whatever the cap says - probably Pentosin CHF 11S.
