Use a stethoscope to listen near the various pulleys while the noise is occurring. In particular, suspect the power steering pump. If it is the culprit, the noise will be loudest at the high pressure output hose. In that case, suck out as much fluid as possible from the reservoir, then refill it with Mopar "Cold Weather Power Steering Fluid". You can get this from the dealership Parts Dept. It is really meant for diesel trucks but it will work in cars too.
