Question about 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan
I have a duel control heater and A/C. While driving in cold Mountain Terran, the heater starts putting off only cold air. However, after pulling off at a gas station and letting the car idle in park, it put off heat again. Upon arriving home everything seemed to go back to normal, until today. Now, when I try to turn off the heater a high blower turns on. Not sure if the A/C works, it's too cold outside to tell. The blower appears to be like the recirculation fan. Can you tell me what this fan or blower is and how the heater can be turned off?

That was a common complaint a few years back, due to the fact that the heater core is a little too much higher than the engine, which requires that extra push it gets when engine RPM's increase. One thing I did do on my Caravan was remove my hoses to the heater core, and use a small external pump with hoses to circulate C.L.R. through my core for a while, then let it sit with CLR in the core overnight.Next day I circulated it through again, both ways by reversing hoses, and then re-attached hoses, bled air out of system, and notice quite an improvement in heat at idle. Once cleaned out, the heater core allowed coolant flow through it better at idle. If your stumped by explanation, take it to an automotive shop, or a Rad shop, and get a quote on flushing that core out for you. I recommend the CLR, but it might be too time consuming for you , but a flush will probably show some noticeable improvement.

You need a blower motor resistor,and the heater blower motor should be checked for high amp draw. check Napa for the part or go to Dodge..prpbably about 60.00 dollars.
