  1. 2007 Grand Caravan Heater/Blend Door Question

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    My van has manual heating, driver and passenger zones, plus rear heat and AC. The drivers temperature control outputs unheated air as you move the slider from cool to hot. Once you reach the far right of the temperature control,it outputs full heat. Move the slider just a small amount to the...
  2. Air Conditioning works but Heater blows cold air

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Dodge Grand Caravan 2007 It looks to me like the fan is working since is blowing cold air, so I assume it's not a fuse problem. So the heater blows cold air, but not as cold as when the AC is on. I have looked at the other threads with a similar problem, what they don't state is if their AC...
  3. Why so slow to warm up?

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    I just noticed on a long road trip that the temperature gauge takes forever to reach mid-range. It used to get there in 5-10 minutes of idling. Now it takes 45 min. of 50mph driving (mid-40's outside temp) to get to mid-gauge. It will go up faster running the engine at standstill, but then...
  4. Smell of Gasoline in Heater

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    On my '96 3.8L Grand Caravan, there's a smell of gasoline when I first turn on the heater in the morning. If I open the hood I can't smell it around the engine. At first I thought it was some solvent (smells like Toulene), then just exhaust wafting around to the front and being sucked in to...

  6. No Heat - HVAC Calibration fails. Next step?

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    The heat on my '96 was intermittent for awhile, now off permanently. I ran the HVAC control unit recalibration, and it failed a couple of times with different combinations of flashing button lights. I ran both tests in various orders, so may have confused it, but safe to say it fails. Cold...

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019

Just received a call from mechanic, hoses replaced but rear heater not pushing hot air??.. :( Any ideas...

  9. 2009 T&C Limited - Rear heater only blows cold air when top is selected.

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    On my 2009 Town & Country Limited, when the top / ceiling vents are selected, they only blow cold or mildly warm air, while the bottom will blow hot air, and if both are selected, you get mildly warm air up top, and warm air in the bottom, but not much flow from the bottom. Is this normal?

  11. Thumping Under Dashboard

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    For a year now, whenever I turn on the heater fan, there's a thumping sound under the right side of the dash. It used to come in groups of thumps but now there's just five or six, then it stops. Everything seems to work normally, air is diverted to floor/top vents according to the setting. I...

    It took me a while to figure out where the coolant was going. Now what to do? 2003 Chrysler T&C w/175k. My wife noticed that the heater wasn't blowing hot very well and I found the radiator and overflow both low. Refilled both. Same issue. Did a flush and fill. Coolant low again. I...

    Hello everyone. I want to start off by saying thanks to everyone on here who have posted tutorials on makeshift fixes for heater pipe issues on these vans. It's insane that Chrysler/Dodge has not done something better with this design, but we make do as we must. Anyway, I have a Dodge Grand...
