#196 of 200 2007 Chrysler T&C heat issues
Dec 26, 2012 (11:45 am)
We've had the van in to 2 different dealers on 3 occasions. The A/C has had no problems yet, but the heater quits blowing warm air & blows cold. Neither dealership could solve the problem. One mechanic even told me, after the 2nd visit, that Chrysler basically said it was a design flaw, and that another model (300??) had had the same issue. The 2nd dealership recalibrated the unit & it worked OK for a while. We took it to our independent mechanic who found a bad module. He has a different search system & found 2500 other vans had had the same problem that was fixed by replacing this module. Chrysler is perturbed because we didn't take it back to a dealership. After all, why would we?? So now Chrysler is telling our mechanic to buy the part from the local dealer, & after we pay him, they'll decide how much they'll pay us. I guess they figure they'll 'punish' us for daring to go outside their network.

I've had the module, blower and a/c all replaced on my 08! The air was a recall. The blower I paid the $100 deductible for a part that prematurely failed. Unbelievable.

We haven't had any AC issues (other than one episode of blowing hot air briefly) but this drawn out experience has us seriously considering trading. We do have the extended warranty but are not sure what it would pay if Chrysler doesn't cover the cost.

The (heater) module was replaced last week. At first it seemed to be working properly; however, over the weekend and again today, I noticed differences in the temp of the air coming from the dash & floor vents - the floor vents were blowing cool air. Not only that, but one side of the dash was blowing warmer air than the other.
Now I'm faced with the predicament of calling Chrysler again (who paid most of the repair costs tho not happy I didn't go to the dealership) and reporting this issue which is not a new one, but I had forgotten it since last winter. First I will call the shop where the work was done & see if he cares to tackle the problem again. This is really ridiculous!

Thanks for your tip. I found myself without heat this season and was getting ready to take it to the shop when I found your post.
I added antifreeze and the heat was blowing immediately.
Thanks for this $9.51 tip.
