Check coolant levels before proceeding with any repairs. In addition, the contact stated that the rear passenger side door failed to lock. Worked perfectly, letting me know that everything is working well. First item replaced was the sway bar at about 30,000 mi. Electrical problems, doors don't close,radio doesn't work in the rain, and the gas gauge doesn't even work. Also the heat is nice as we do travel North in the winter.
I am having random heat issues 2010 avenger. Models affected are listed below. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. Funny, I was expecting to get burned. Plus, less damage to your engine. Definately something with the heat.
I later called Chrysler's service center in auburn hills and they explained the repairs should have been covered. Remove that black hose and twist the hose out of the way. It is not just warm air like the air is not working. I have tried different settings to see if I can get it to change. Could I use the substance that helps plug a small radiator leak? P0480 was still stored within. In response to my question why, I was told that the computer needed to know when the fan motor was jammed to turn the motor off before blowing out the relay.
This is bad design and material selection. Presently I have 38,000 miles on it. Rotate the blend air door shaft by hand to ensure the plastic door stop stops rotation of the shaft between the stop bumpers in the housing. However: At increased speeds the engine may be heating what little fluid there is to a point to supply heat to the heater core, and register on the temperature sensor. Had towed to private garage.
I believe it is the rear heater door may be stuck as it does not matter how long we drive it either. I also looked at the wiring diagrams if there was any hidden relays or fuses and found nothing. The first thing to check in a no heat situation is the coolant level. It is going to be this weekend before I can do anything. All I can say is wow, did we buy a lemon or is this just a poorly made car. For your information no coolant has been added or changed in this vehicle since its original delivery with the factory installed coolant. Last hope or else I'd have to start cutting into the airbox.
The temperature is controlled with a blend air door. The manufacturer was made aware of the issue. Belt has come off when driving in heavy rain 4 times. Remove the silencer pad from beneath the driver side end of the instrument panel. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired.
Pedals 98 Grand Cherokee 4. Brakes have been done 3 times and are in need of a new set less than 1500 miles since last new set. Got hoses connected to heater core and did a pressure test. The more of the panel you can get loose, the easier it is to work on it. I checked the internet to see if any one else had this problem and found many. The front one is located just outside the firewall on the passenger side. This has been a total mess from the initial purchase of this vehicle and I would like some assistance.
I have sent customer assistance my complaint and bill for the coolant pipe replacement placing little hope in reimbursement. I believe that this line should not have corroded this rapidly five years and low mileage and that Chrysler should reimburse me for this repair even though the warranty has expired. Third you make sure both heater hoses are hot. Not only would you not have heat in your car. I have a 2001 and a 2002 town and country plus my sister has a 2002 Dodge grand caravan with the same problem. Heater works after I've pushed the car over 3000 rpms.
It necessary, rotate the actuator slightly to align the splines on the actuator output shaft with those in the blend air door linkage. Surprisingly this was not covered by my extended warranty along with the tie rod replacement. The controls work perfectly again. When driving in rain and going over a puddle the serpentine belt falls off this has happened so many times that I have installed brackets one by the tensioner and one by the pulley. Shouldn't this repair been a recall by Chrysler before someone gets hurt. Stopped vehicle on side of highway and inspected coolant.
Than I get a wiring almost like a plastic burning smell. There was always a small amount of air coming through, but without enough force to be fully effective. Insufficient fluid passing through the heater core small fan that blows through a small heated radiator may not be enough to produce heat. It has two bolts and 3 vacuum lines. These systems are under pressure and you cannot expect the coolant to travel efficiently around the engine and hvac system keep in mind in van, those pipes are even longer and go back to the end of the van, like in a bus, other cars don't have that if you are not producing enough pressure in some cases. The hose was not hot at all!! Thinking that maybe the vehicle had made a clean trip, I checked the computer again.
