problem #2

When I tried to pull my Dodge Caravan (2000) out of the parking lot after a heavy raining day, I found the power steering didn't work. I could go forward or backward, but could not turn, or could turn only very slowly (I could hear the wheel kind of making clicking sound when I tried to turn). After driving very slowly on the parking lot and tried to turn slowly several time, the steering finally got back. I googled online and found many people have the same problem, mostly with a Dodge, but also some other cars. www.topix.com/forum/autos/Dodge-grand-Caravan/tc37vjlp6md4pohvj since I don't drive much and mostly park my vehicle in the garage, I don't have much problem. It has happened a couple more times after the first incident, but it usually returns normal after I make several small turns in the parking lot. But this morning, it happened again, after I parked my car outside with an overnight rain, and the wheel was still kind of stuck after I drove about 5 miles, making several turns on purpose in the neighborhood. It's still pouring outside, I don't know if I can get the steering back to normal after work. Since I am not the only people having the same problem, I hope the manufacturer could help us solve the problem. Thanks!
