OK, heres a longshot, I have a 98 Explorer, which I plow snow with in the winter, last fall, the u-joint at the bottom of the steering column started seizing up, as it is parked all summer, outdoors in tall grass. I had to drill one of the cups with a #7 drill bit and thread it to 1/4x28, and install a grease fitting, grease it, and yahoo, problem solved... otherwise, if it sounds like it's coming from the column, try fire some dry film lubricant down the column? liquid wrench makes a good product, could it be the contacts in the column???
