I know in the 2004 T & C there was a service bulletin out that a similar noise created when turning the wheel at slow speeds could be eliminated by replacing a 3 inch hose leading into the cooling coil (? located under the car directly behind the engine and in the center) with a three foot house. My mechanic dug it up when trying to diagnose a similar problem. Said it fixed the problem. Mine is making the same noise and plan to do the same.

Just fixed mine by replacing the PS fluid reservoir. It cost $30 for the part and is relatively easy for an experienced backyard mechanic to change. There is a YouTube video that details the whole procedure:
Easy stuff! Once you know

I have the same car and the same problem or so it sounds. After reading the threads on most of the solutions the thing in common was after replacing pump, reservoir, etc. the fluid was changed. Got me thinking so I bought a $5 syphon and 2 bottles of Chrysler tranny fluid (the recommended fluid for Chrysler power steering pumps). I syphoned all the fluid out of the reservoir and refilled, drove around and repeated. The noise went away for about 40,000 miles then came back. Same fix, same result. I don't know how the fluid gets contaminated but it seems to. Hope this helps and is a cheap solution.
