my '01.5 cummins powered 2500 has chirps of some sort under the dash at low
speeds (15 mph or so). it almost sounds like its the drivers side shock
bushing or something but id swear its closer. my silver '01.5 did the same
thing. my green '00 did the same thing. the blue '02 i test drove
yesterday does the same thing. anybody have any idea what this is? it
annoys the piss outta me.

My '04 chirps on left turns (only, not right!)
I just turn the radio up more to drown out the noise... <bg>
(I think, but not sure, it is the plastic piece just below the
steering wheel. Some day I'll check)
Mine does the same thing, only at 35 - 45 mph after driving it for 30+
minutes in a straight line over *slightly* to really bumpy roads. I
thought it was the shocks, but I replaced those and I still have the
I hope someone knows what it is ... it is very irritating.

Mine does that at stopped idle or slow speeds. Sounds like crickets. If
I am stopped the chirps will go away if I press hard on the brake pedal.
Pressing only lightly or not at all and I hear the chirps. Above
5-10mph it also goes away. Dunno what it is.
mine only does it at really slow (parking lot) speeds. it really annoys the
piss out of me, and every similar model truck ive been in does it. i cannot
believe that nobody has figured it out yet.

Most of the chirping dash problems I have dealt with were the clips that
hold the various parts in place and the plastic rubbing because of the
motion of those clips.
PIA to pull the dash and put a strip of kapton tape in the areas that
show friction. That eliminates the friction causing the squeaks.
