POWER STEERING

2004 Dodge Ram • 5.7L V8 4WD Automatic • 155,000 miles

My power steering whines when turning and will not work at all if I am sitting still or going slow. As long as I am giving it gas it will work without any issues. The check engine light is on with a code saying it is the Power Steering Pressure Switch. Could that be the cause of the whining and not working when sitting still?

Thanks in advance and God bless!

Yes, if the fluid is full and you still have problems, either the pump is bad or the pressure switch.
