I have a 2000 Durango slt+ and the engine light came on today, so I went to advance auto where they check codes for FREE!!
and the guy told me it was the power steering pressure sensor, so we poped the hood and had a look around the power steering fluid reservior and I pulled what looked like the wires out of the sensor and they looked wet and the guy was like yup that looks like thats the problem..well advance auto didn't have the part in their system and when i went back out and started the truck the engine light was off, so I know that must of been the problem.. so now I need to find this mystery part.. does anybody know what I'm talking about or better yet does anybody have or know where I can get a schematic of the power steering reservior or the engine in general? I have a hanyes manual but it's at home and I'm on the road for work and there's no way I could talk the wife thru finding this on the phone without a fight ensueing.. so can anybody help?

The PS Pressure switch is a dealer part-about $25. Make sure you replace it, because mine went out, PS fluid traveled through the wire harness into the o2 sensors...ruining them. I had to replace all 4 o2 sensors, because of a $25 part.

This is what the guy at advanced said, that this part probably wasn't a big deal to replace but that I should do it soon so that the fluid doens't travel the line and ruin other parts..

Do you happen to know the part number? I Couldn't find it on dodgeparts.com (or the part by its name for that matter) or if I call the dealer will they know what I am talking about when I say "power steering pressure sensor"?

I called the dealer, they knew what the part was.. it runs about 31$. I'm picking it up today, any advice on putting this on? Should I drain the power steering reservior before I attempt to do this or should I just "work quickly" and top off the reservior once the new sensor is in? This sensor is inline below the reservior.

No need to drain the fluid-it should just snap into place.

Very easy to change out. Just unscrews out. Use a back up wrench so ya don't twist the line. Some fluid may drain out. Then put new one in, reconnect the electrical connector.
