Caution

To avoid damage to the steering system, do not drive over curbs, parking barriers, or similar objects at speeds greater than 3 km/h (1 mph). Use care when driving over other objects such as lane dividers and speed bumps. Damage caused by misuse of the vehicle is not covered by the vehicle warranty.

Electric Power Steering (1500 Series)

This vehicle has electric power steering. It does not have power steering fluid. Regular maintenance is not required.

If power steering assist is lost due to a system malfunction, the vehicle can be steered, but may require increased effort.

See your dealer if there is a problem.

If the steering assist is used for an extended period of time while the vehicle is not moving, power assist may be reduced.

If the steering wheel is turned until it reaches the end of its travel, and is held in that position for an extended period of time, power steering assist may be reduced.

Normal use of the power steering assist should return when the system cools down.

See your dealer if there is a problem.

Power Steering (2500/3500 Series)

(2500/3500 Series - All Regular Cab, Double Cab/Crew Cab without Digital Steer Assist)

The power steering system may require maintenance. See Power Steering Fluid.

If power steering assist is lost because the engine stops or the system malfunctions, the vehicle can be steered but may require increased effort. See your dealer.

(2500/3500 Series - Double Cab/Crew Cab with Digital Steer Assist)

The vehicle has a Digital Steer Assist power steering system that varies the amount of effort required to steer the vehicle. Less steering effort is required at slower speeds. At faster speeds, the required steering effort increases. The system helps the steering wheel return to center at low speeds. Pressing the Tow/Haul button adjusts steering effort for driving conditions described in Tow/Haul Mode.

The power steering system may require maintenance. See Power Steering Fluid.

If power steering assist is lost because the engine stops or the system malfunctions, the vehicle can be steered but may require increased effort. See your dealer.

Steering in Emergencies
