over the past weekend i had some issues with electric steering, got up saturday am and started the truck as normal and the evic displayed service power steering system and the steering was out and very hard to turn, i see where the part is not cheap as usual, wondering has anyone tried a reman unit versus new? also i see where there is a recall for 13-19 rams with steering issues but looked over for my serial number on part but no numbers match with suspected recall numbers, doesnt mean mine doesnt fall under that recall, also read where the new/reman part will have to flash by the dealer and wondering has anyone been able to do that with the alpaob tool? thanks in advance.

Same problem as you with 74000 miles but no warranty as I purchased here in the states a Canadian Ram. Does the system have any fuses or other associated parts that can easily be checked by me? Nothing in the fuse box under the hood, and no info in the owner's manual. Any advice would be appreciated thanks

Had my rack replaced a couple of weeks ago. I was getting some suspension work done and had that shop do the rack too. They got it from Detroit Axel. Shipping got a little messed up and the shop couldn't flash my computer with what they had... needed to call in a favor from another shop....but it's all done and I'm very happy. Drives like it's brand new.
