I'll BET you have window visors or rain guards!
Look at the bottom of them as you drive air will go between the door and the guards and make a very nice squealing noise.

The belt in my 01 Dodge Dakota squeals badly. Started when I had my power steering pump replaced. I tried changing the belt and the tensioner, but still squeals. Is it possible the pulley on the power...


excess mechanical drag from the pump can cause the belt to slip and squeal, but before focusing on the pump I'd check the condition, tension and alignment of the belt. I might even try cleaning all the pulleys with an aerosol brake cleaner and install a new belt, particularly if the current one has more than 50,000 miles on it. It might be that the squeal is coming from or caused by a different belt-driven accessory.
A more typical noise from a power-steering pump is a high-pitched whine, not a squeal. Usually, if the steering wheel is stationary, meaning that the steering rack is not "asking" for assistance from the high-pressure fluid from the pump, there's little or no noise

2002 Dakota Cannot physically get Gearshift to shift out of park.


Mine did that on a trip to Virginia last year. I thought the transmission was bad, but in despiration I decided to try and reset the computer just in case. I took the negative lead loose on the battery, put the key in the ignition and turned it on for about 20 seconds and released it. After about 10 minutes I hooked the negative side back up and started the truck, wala, problem solved, however, I later had to buy the PCM computer. I got one from a place in Florida that rebuilds them for around $150 and it has a warranty. Good luck. :)
