Question about 2000 Chrysler 300M
I agree unless the power steering is moving critical wiring to the ECU. It is very unlikely but Double check. I like a bright led flashlight in the dark to inspect wiring. Follow the wiring from the
alternator. It may also be grounding for some very unusual reason which would put an extreme load on the engine, and disrupt the engine controls. Does this happen during car being driven, or just when stopped. If during driving, it is possible there are serious problems in the wheel bearings and or cv joints, since it is fromt wheel drive. I had a front wheel drive Lynx that developed that kind of CV problem Inspection of the CV boots revealed a split, so dirt etc got into the system an nearly brought it to a hault. Bad wheel bearings could cause the brake disks to rub abnormally aginst the brake pads. It would barely get home. I recommend you take to a reliable mechanic if not the Dealer. It could become a very serious safety problem. On my Lynx the wheel came off! I had to have a wrecker bring it home. It was in a residential area, so
was no disastrous event, But had I been on the interstate, I probably would not be writing this advice.

HI. You power steering fluid level may be low at this point, a quick inspection of the fluid level, will be in order, if possible. Once you have verified that the fluid level is sufficient, move on to the actual power steering belt and unit. Make sure the belt is tight, and rotating the pulley. If the fluid level is low, be sure to fill to specifications.
Now, If the pulley and belt are rotating without a wobble, and the fluid level is sufficient, this will lead to a failed pump. The pump should be replaced in this case. Make sure you exhaust all inspections points mentioned before replacing the pump.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the answer I was looking for. Low on fluid, now hoping it's not a leak."
if power steering fluid is bubbly, means that its sucking air somewhere before(sucking side) (or on) power steering pump. that would explain the noise. Check (when cold) fluid level. if level is low, top up before starting the car. had a lot of cars that high preasure hose was leacking fluid on restricting valve. if so, fluid comes out on the end of protecting cover of the hose. (driver side on spark plugs and down the engine). replace hose with original. do not try to make it your self, becouse steering wheel will shake, sinse restracting valve is missing.
But if you press brake pedal, that has nothing to do with it.

this engine uses a timing chain, chains require no replacement unless the engine is being repaired or the chain or spockets fail
