Dynamic drive
This warning comes up about 3-4 times a week,sometimes when it comes up every so often a ding will sound and radio will cut out for that split second. Any ideas?

I am having the same issue. It most likely a sensor on the Dynamic Drive block, that is causing the problem. The part is around 80.00, & the block is located behind the passenger side wheel well. Once the sensor is replaced, the system should be calibrated using INPA or DIS. I am going to remove my block for inspection, then flush the system. There is a filter located in the system, that I believe should be changed. If the filter is partially plugged, I suspect it could be causing some of the problem. I do not believe there is any in driving the car, while the problem is present. Read the thread below, for more info.

Good Luck!

First, make sure your fluid is good. The Dynamic Drive is on the same system as the Power Steering, so check that reservoir.

What is your exact error? I had Dynamic Drive failures in the past, the first time ended up being my Steering Angle sensor. The second was the ARS Block as Herb is showing. My last one was a battery. Of course the battery threw a bunch of other errors also.

When it was my steering angle sensor it would pop up while I was driving. The ARS block failure would be at random times, sitting at a light, doing nothing, then BING, here is Dynamic Drive warning.

Lucky for me all these were under warranty (except the battery).

All it says is dynamic drive warning,and yes it just happens at random. Fluid is at a good level. Is there a DIY for the things you say to check. Im not under warenty any more.Im trying to do more myself instead of paying an arm and leg to someone else.

The best link for a DIY on this problem is above. If you have DIS or INPA, you could calibrate your system to see if that will fix the problem. If you do not have this software, you probably need to take it to a shop for repair. The system will need to be calibrated, after changing the sensor.

Good Luck!
