  1. A/C High Side service port

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    It looks like I have a leak in the high side service port on my 2000 DGC. This valve does not use a schrader core, but instead uses a ball to seal the port. From what I have read the dealer will typically tell you that the whole high pressure line needs to be replaced, however, some people say...
  2. Air Con problems...

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Okay, so I live in California, and it's starting to hit the 100's now, so the air con problem is starting to become a bigger and bigger issue. Basically, it does VERY little cooling, and the small amount of cooling that does happen only comes from the passenger side. Last year we had it...
  3. A/C Manifold Gauge stupid question

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    A/C R134a manifold gauge set with three hoses-red, blue, and yellow. Each hose has a connector on each end. On each hose, the the connector on one end is open. On the other end the connector has a pin or plug, as if the depress a schrader valve , maybe. My question is, which end connects to the...
  4. Deslugger

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Ok, so you learn something new every day and I had no idea this was a thing. So the other day, after doing a ton of work on my 04 Town and Country, I went to get an inspection sticker. I got a couple hundred yards down the street and hit the A/C. The van lurched, badly, for a second and then...
  5. 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan:A/C compress + wat pump + alternator replace = death blow?

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I paid $6K for this used 2006 GC SXT, (89K miles, sunroof, power doors/windows, roof rack and tow hitch) engine was in excellent condition - I felt like I was getting a really good deal. We used the all-seats-stow-and-go to the max, hauling our stuff as we moved 4 times; throwing an...
  6. 2009 Town and Country no A/C

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    I have a 2009 Town and Country and the A/C clutch will not engage. I have checked the system and it is full with no leaks. Also there is battery voltage at the connector, I have noticed that the voltage is there all the time even with the vehicle off. Additionally the blower motor seems to make...
  7. Possible blend door issue

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    Good morning everyone, I had an interesting day with our 2008 T&C signature edition yesterday. On the way to work the upper heater hose split at the plastic Y connector. I was able to make it over to autozone, but they didn't have the parts I needed to make the modified repair (they didn't have...
  8. A/C o-rings: which go where?

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Hello all. Looking for some assistance here. I'm replacing a compressor and condenser and flushing the system on my 2004 T&C with rear a/c. Now that I have taken most of the hoses and lines off, I can see that there are many different sizes and thicknesses of O-rings in my kit, with some being...
  9. Intermittent A/C issue

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I have a 2004 T/C Touring, every so often the A/C up front stops working. No blower/fan pushing air out. Back will still work fine. Next time I start the van, A/C usually works. Does this sound like a relay issue? Don't want to waste money swapping out parts if I don't have to! Thanks all...
  10. 2009 T&C Touring 3.8L A/C Compressor

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    The A/C compressor on our 2009 Touring just went out. It's got 117,000 miles so I figure things are going to start failing. I have a new one coming and wanted to see if anyone has any tips to aid in the swap. I've already replaced the control arms, struts, sway bar bushings and oil pan...
  11. Rear a/c not working. Blower? Resistor? Please help.

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    I have a 2009 t&c. The front ac works perfectly. The rear will not turn on at all anymore. I am not that great of a mechanic, so any dumbed down help would be great. I have the inner panel pulled back, but I don't even know where the resistor is located. I was going to replace it to see if...
  12. 3 out of 4 rear vents don't have full flow

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    2008 Town & Country Touring :ask_wsign This is driving us crazy and we are close to the end of our warranty, so help is really needed. The rear vents don't give out the same air flow. We only hear a fan blowing from the very rear passenger side vent. We do get some cool air on the other 3, but...
  13. Rear A/C cold; front, not at all 4th Gen.GC

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007

  15. 2005 Caravan A/C Not Working

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Hey everybody, I have an '05 SXT. Just bought it yesterday and the A/C doesn't work. I am very competent with vehicles and want to see if I can track the issue down on my own. Here's where I'm at so far: I don't hear the compressor clutch engaging with the typical rpm loss when I press the...
  16. climate control turns itself on

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Recently, every time we start our 02 grand caravan, the climate control (manual version) is powered on and the A/C button is illuminated. I only noticed because the van was started and idling and I heard the compressor kicking on. Since I noticed, it has done it nearly every start up for over a...
  17. 2008 A/C Cold in Rear and Front Passenger but HOT on Drivers Side

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    Weird one. On a recent long trip on a chilly morning, about an hour into the ride with the heat on, the driver's side vents started blowing extra hot. After the day warmed up a bit, I turned on the AC, but the drivers side is still hot hot hot. Nothing I do now can stop this heat on the...
  18. To make the 2007 Automatic A/C Recirc Default to ON, do this:

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Some time ago, I set my 2007 Grand Caravan SXT Automatic A/C Recirculation to default to ON. I did it by accident, as it is not documented (nor recommended) in the 2007 Owner's Manual, but I prefer it that way. I believe Chrysler's logic is that flushing the evaporator plenum with fresh air...
  19. 2006 t&c a/c issues

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Hello, The AC on my 2006 T&C Touring wasn't blowing cold last week so I took it in for a check. The Local Napa franchise hooked it up to a Robinnaire(sp) machine to check and charge. I was down to .6lbs of Freon and the machine detected "no Leaks". It then proceeded to Charge the system with...
  20. Are both refrigerant ports the same size?

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    I have a 3.8L LE, 1996. I bought a kit to replace the valves in the AC refrigerant ports. The little tool they give you to remove the valve fits in the compressor side port, but not in the lower port. Is it possible that there are two different sizes? The lower port actually looks smaller...
