#17 of 261 How to replace Evaporator Core(step by step)
Jul 29, 2006 (11:54 am)
The evaporator core on my 1996 Dodge Dakota needs to be replace. Because the amount of money mechanics charge to do this type of job, I want to replace the eveaporator core myself.
Some people say that when it comes with evaporator cores only the pros should deal with them. Again, because of the price of this job, I want to do it myself.
Does anyone have a step by step guide that can share with me for this kind of job. Recently I found a how to remove the eveporator core step by step guide,but I think it was written for a newer model Dodge Dakota.
Your help on this subject will alwasy be greatly appreciated.

I have a 99 dakota. A/C works fine initially , but after 10 min. air becomes hot. I'm trying to troubleshoot blind ( no manual) and notice that 2 electrical connections to the compressor area ( i'm guessing 1 to be the compressed gas sensor ) both maintain 12v. Or should I just say HELP..where do I look for this problem.

To get the blower out, you have to remove the whole dashboard. It is a major PITA. About 6 hrs of labor by the book.

#23 of 261 2003 Dakota, A/C only turns on if set to high
Nov 17, 2006 (9:59 am)
My A/C only comes on if I turn the knob over to high. If it's not on high the light, and fan turn off as if the unit is turned off. Any advice on how to correct this problem would really be appreciated! Thanks

Have you even read the archives? (I guess not... or you would not be asking this question)
HINT: If fan only runs on high - replace the blower resistor. (This "fix" holds true for any automobile on the planet)

The "search" function will look in the archives at one fell swoop. (The advanced search features allows you to narrow in on just the Dakota forums)
