I am also a 2006 Dodge Durango owner with this new problem that just began two weeks ago. My air conditioner worked great in the morning on my way to work. I came out at the end of the day and turned it on and it blew hot/warm air from the front cabin vents and the rear control is blowing very very cold air. My husband checked the freon and did add a small amount according to the gauges it is perfectly on target. The second thing he did was change the relay under the hood as instructed by many people trying to help us. That did not make a difference either. He has checked all the fuses under the dash, they all show good. If any one out there has any idea what we can do to fix this PLEASE PLEASE let us know as soon as possible. We have 7 children and in Mo mid summer with 8-9 people in the car at 95 plus temps, it is not a pretty sight! This is only a 2006 it should not have this problem yet. Please help!

we have a 2005 durango. at 59,000 miles, our compressor went out. fortunately we had a service contract to cover the $700+ repair. a few weeks ago, we took it in again (now 75k miles) and were told the evaporator was leaking. the dealer said it would be about $1200 to repair. at the advice of a friend, i took it to an independent mechanic who did work for him to take a look. he found the high pressure line from the compressor to the condensor is leaking. he also found no one has this part in stock. (why??) he was able to get the hose rebuilt. the repair was less than $200.

Well we know we don't have a leak in the compressor because the compressor is cooling the rear cabin perfectly fine. The freon is not low, we have had it charged and it wouldn't even take a charge from the can and the gauges all show full.Unfortunately it is just the front cabin that is not cooling.Still trying to find the problem.Thanks!

I have a 2003 Durango, our air worked fine last year. Just like two others I've read here, we also lost cold air up-front, but cold in back. Everything works fine other than no a/c up-front. We went to the dealership today for dioagnostics. We found that the front expansion valve is restricted, this cost us $75.00 to find out. The repair bill will be around $308.00 minus the $75.00 for testing. The dealership said this would fix the problem. We are waiting on parts, should be in tomorrow, but we are leaving tomorrow for vacation. The mechanic said that the valve restricts flow of freon to front of car, but allows to go to the back. It makes since to me so I guess we will have it repaired. I hope soon, thank GOD it is a small trip for vacation, hooott outside. I hope this helps others with the same problem. Other places than dealership probably be cheaper.

I have a 2003 Durango, on the passenger side under the dach should be a resister, it has a plug-in and two srews holding it. This resister is by the blower motor. When you take it out it just looks like a long-flat piece of metal, this controls your blower speeds and fan. Mine had a bad prong, it works fine now. The part was under $10.00 at dealership.

Replace the expansion valve in the front,this is where you get the cold air,this turns the liquid into gas,also,replace the dryer too,this will keep the moister out of the system.
#78 of 98 AC issue passanger side DASH
Jul 24, 2010 (10:22 am)
I have an 02 durango and over the past couple months the front ac has been cutting out, i have noticed that wiggling the wiring harness under the passenger side dash has helped kick it back on, but recently it has gone out for good. i have taken this harness off and behind the harness there is what looks like a small chip with a capacitor on it, does anyone know if this item is my issue and what this item is called?

I have a 2002 Durango that was stolen and recovered - stereo was ripped out, windows broken, sat in the rain with windows open for a couple of weeks, after recovery, a/c would only blow on high and no cold air - only hot. Also on the side the window was broken, the window raises only intermittently - repair shop replaced control module so now the fan blows on all speeds,replaced passenger window control twice, they have run a circuit tracer for the passenger window but cannot get it to replicate not raising more than once or twice, freon levels are all good - prior to theft and vandalism a/c and all controls worked great! Of course insurance says it is all coincidence - that the evaporator and some valve just happened to go out at the exact time the car was stolen (also defroster randomly goes off and on now) Can all of this be connected in any way
