#112 of 261 climate control (1993 Dodge Dakota V6-3.9L)
Jul 23, 2008 (10:02 am)
First time user. When the heater or A/C is on and blowing, it only comes through at the windshield, no matter what button I push. I was able to go under the dash and find a box that when I put my hand inside and pushed on a door to open, then the air come through the cab. When I released the door it shut and the air went back to the windshield. Thanks for any help.

That is the blend door, and yours is malfunctioning. Dodge dealers are used to this repair.

Thanks for the info. I went there before I posted this message and he told me that the heater box needed to replace. I couldn't find anything about a heater box so I tried Edmunds. Thanks again.
#115 of 261 A/C compresser switch.

How difficult is the switch on the compresser to replace? I have done everything else I can think of on my '92 4x4 3.9l, but cannot get the unit to run consistently.
Everything includes: Retrofit (r134),low pressure switch, O rings, and curcuit breaker.

Try replacing the AC clutch relay located in your fuse panel on the driver's side fender well on top. Spent hundreds with lame dealers and fixed my air for about $10 with a plug in part. Good luck!!

My A/C problem turned out to be the clutch relay in the fuse box. $10 and presto. Full time air. Hope this helps!

My A/C is now full time, but will shift from the dash vents to the floor vents when under acceleration. I know I've seen something on here about that before, but I can't seem to find it now. Anybody know why it does that? THANKS!!

Thanks for the info on the relay, sadly, I have already tried that solution as well as doing a retrofit and changing the low pressure switch. I will be spending a majority of this weekend tracing the electrical circuit as the repair manuel does not show the diagram for the A/C. Oh, I have also changed the circuit breaker located in the fuse block under the dash. The last switch I know of is the compresser.

I received the wiring kit from Dodge for my resistor card plug. Can you tell me which gauge wires go into which hole in the new plug. My new wires are green and purple with the green being the larger of the two. The old plug appears to have only one small wire (brown). My email is BOOMER632HOTMAIL.COM.

Use the large wires. The current draw is to great for the small ones.
