Angry Dynamic drive warning!!

My dynamic drive warning light comes on when the weather is bellow zero. Yes, I live in a cold climate zone. Also my radio seems to loose signal at the same time. Has anyone experienced anything like this? Would love some feedback. Thanks in advance.

Have the battery checked and also the power steering fluid level.

The radio issue makes me think a weak or bad battery. I have been getting the same message lately, but my battery is only 3 months old. A fresh charge did not resole my problem.

Yorgi,

Do you know where the power steering filter is located? I see one on a parts list, But I can not find it's location. If the filter is starting to clog, this could cause the Dynamic Drive warning. This is a PM that we all probably need to service!

Good Luck!

The 6 eers are very tough on batteries, and that could be it, I already replaced mine once.
but I like your idea that the culprit of all this is the PS filter. I will try to find its location and will post it.
Thank you,

It looks like there is a "non-serviceable" filter located in the power steering reservoir.

Why would it be listed as a part for sale? I can not find a drawing for it? Old & oxidized oil can cause it to clog. With the servo type hydraulic components, it would make since to have one in the system. While removing my system for inspection, it would be an ideal time to service it.

Thanks
