Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck 2WD
MY CLIMATE CONTROLL STARTED SHUTTING OFF, NO POWER. THEN IT WOULD KICK BACK ON EVERY ONCE AND A WHILE, SLOWLY WORKING LESS AND LESS. NOW IT WILL ONLY OCCASIONALLY WORK FOR A SECOND OR TWO ONLY ONCE AND A WHILE AS I START THE CAR. ANY SUGGESTIONS?
This is likely a short in the power distribution block located on your stearing column. There was a recall for this problem. Contact the dealer for information.

I had a near identical malfunction on my truck. I suggest a little trouble shooting first. First check and see if you have any voltage at the blower. Its on the right side. Unplug the wire and check the solid blue. With you truck running you should have anywhere from 12 to 14 volts dc. If this checks out open your dash and check the wire plug on the lef of the ac controller. The black with green wire is a ground. You should get 12 to 14 volts when connected to known 12 volt positive source. If this checks out try making a jumper wire and connect the black and green to any of the other wires in the plug. If your blower runs, you replace the controller if it does not, remove the blower and connect to a jumper and the battery source. If the motor whirls away, you have a bad blower motor resistor. This is next to the motor towards the drivers side and has a four wire plug and two phillips screws holding it in. This should fix it.

Maybe a relay switch?
