I'm new to the list so forgive me if this has been talked about in the past however it's driving me nuts and I need some help. I've developed a sqeak or chirp in the center of my dashboard that is as annoying as someone running their nails on a chalkboard. It's loud enough that I have to turn up the stereo real high just to drive. I have an 05 1500 quad cab. I did some research on line and learned that others have experienced identical problems right down to the fact that it's worse on hot days and after the truck warms up. Nobody on any of the other sites I looked at had an answer or a fix. I was hoping that it would settle but than again it didn't even start until 5000 miles. Any ideas?

dashboard sqeak

Thanks for the fast reply. Alot of Ram owners have this problem and it's always better or worse depending on the temperature. I happened across a site that lists common problems for the Ram and I was correct that it's something that the mechanics see alot of in fact the site listed it as a very common problem. They had 2 possible solutions. Either spray lithium grease on the steering shafts where the shaft has u-joints on the upper and lower ends or pivot bushing in the shift mechanism on the drivers side of transmission telegraphs up the linkage and into the dashboard. I'm gonna give it a shot this weekend and if I can't get it done at least I have a starting point for the guys at the dealership.

Do you happen to have a link to the site where you found this info??
