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 100 blower/ac switch

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.

#28 of 100 2001 Durango A/C Compressor Malfunctioning
Oct 17, 2009 (12:48 pm)
I have the strangest thing occurring. When I adjust the vent flow control to the defrost position the a/c compressor automatically engages. I have the a/c switch in the off position and it's only when I change the flow control to defrost. I can change the temperature to hot and it'll defrost my windows with warm / hot air but I can still here the compressor working. Any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks.

My durango has decided to stop transferring air to my defrost and floor vents..Good air and heat thru the dash though. Switch regulator seems to be making something move insdie dash...Any suggestions how to approach this?

I don't think it is working improperly. It actually is working as a dehumidifier if i understand the system. when you go to defrost position, the compressor will activate.
#32 of 100 No heat up front
Jan 04, 2010 (8:28 am)
Hi - I have a 2003 Durango SXT in Mass - its really cold and the heat up front just stopped working. The 3rd row controls work and blow hot/cold air but nothing is blowing from the front control. No fan movement at all, no heat at all- any suggestions on what it could be? I am broke and would rather not have to pay a diag.fee for something simple.

I have completely replaced the a/c system. Compressor , dryer all. It still loses freon somewhere , checked with dye etc. Still can;t find leak. Any suggestions ? What's this part I've seen in discussions under the dash or in the dask ? What is it's purpose? And how you get to it.... Thanks Smitty
