Anybody have any issues with the power steering going out now and then for a few seconds, display says power steering unavailable service soon, brought it in to have checked out, dealer found nothing, These rams have a electric motor for power steering instead of the typical hydraulic

I think the last guy that posted about his power steering going out randomly, he ended up needing a new rack assembly.

I've had my 2021 2500 less than a week and I've lost power steering twice.

FYI your 2500 uses a conventional hydraulic power steering unlike the OP's 1500 which is electric.
