#17 of 99 second row heat and a/c not working
Dec 21, 2008 (3:00 am)
hi everyone. i own a 2003 dodge durango slt plus with second row heatind and ventilation controls. the second row suddenly stopped working. the fan blows, it blows at the different speeds but it only blows the outside air temperature. there is no cooling when i turn the a/c on and there is no heat when i turn the temperature control up. the front controls for the rear heat and a/c has the same problem. everything works just fine for the heat and a/c controls for the front. thanks for all of your help in advance. it will be appreciated greatly.

mechanic tore into the side panels on my durango and found that a damper(made of he advised that to replace would cost about $400 plus parts. and he ordered the pare said he would call when it came in. To date I have not heard from him. I have about decided to let it stay the way it is .. and perhaps let the next owner deal with it. have over 100,000 miles on it so about trade in time..

#21 of 99 smoke coming through vents
Jan 17, 2009 (4:55 pm)
Hello! I am looking for advice on what could be causing dirty smoke to coming through my vents in my 2000 durango. I believe this smoke is causing a film on the windows. It is 12 degrees outside and I don't have any heat in the vehicle and to top it off, my other car won't start ( just posted on Chrysler 300M). Looking for an inexpensive way to fix this or even any suggestions on what it could be.
#22 of 99 ac dodge durango

i have a 2001 durango. my ac clutch went out. i was wondering if anyone knows of a smaller serpentine belt i could use to bypass the ac compressor. i don't really want to replace the compressor unit right now.

I have a 2003 durango with the excact same problem, only my rear a/c works and the front doesn't. I took it to the dealership today and found the front expansion valve is restricted. Maybe youre rear a/c valve is restricted.

Hey codyg2. Based on your email handle I'm assuming you have the generation 2 durango. I had the ac compressor clutch seize up on me. I bypassed the compressor pulley with a 7 ribbed 90.4 serp belt. I think anything from 89-91 should work. I'm also assuming you have the same routing and tension assembly as I do on my 1998 1st generation durango.

I have a 2001 SLT, 2nd row has never really worked for heating but my main issue is the AC. It starts blowing warm air when you are at a stop light. Then when you start going again it will cool off.
The 2nd issue with the AC is that if you have the AC on and are in stop and go traffic or going slow, 25-35mph, the engine starts to sound like a diesel engine, no kidding! If it is doing this and you give it some gas to speed up it growls even louder. However once you get up to 45 or so the sound will fade out and go back to normal.
Perhaps the two issues are related. Is there a fan that might be not working?
Has anyone had a similar problem? Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!
#26 of 99 blower/ac switch
Aug 22, 2009 (11:31 am)
1998 Durango 5.9l
When turning my blower switch, just blows air through top wind shield/ defrost vents. does not change vents when I go to dash or floor settings, nor does my ac turn on. Checked all fuses seem to be fine. Blower speed switch works as well as the heat when on heat setting. Just cant hear the normal opening or changing of vents under the dash. Think could be switch meaning the one dial switch of the three that switches vents and triggers ac.
