it could be air in your Power Steering system. check the fluid level and add fluid as needed.then to get the air out all you need to do is turn your steering wheel full left and full right(engine on ) do it 5 times and check your fluid level if is low add more keep it up until the noise goes away.('''it may take about 15-20 full turns to get rid of that noise''')ifafter all this the fluid keeps droping and the noise continues then you have a leak somewhere in the power steering system.

This vehicle is notorious for a "whining" noise. The slower you drive, the louder it is. At first I thought our power-steering pump was going, or the transmission was whining. Two mechanics told me it's normal. Just a quirk with Dodge/Chrysler products. I had that whining noise and it was the alternator making the noise through the radio. even when the radio is off. Just a thought.
