2004 dodge stratus heater/ac issues

I have a 2004 stratus and the three lower levels of the blower have gone out so all i have is the highest setting. There have been issues with the a/c not switching over to the heater and vice versa. Now the heater, doesn't work all the time, or most of the time. I live in WV so it gets cold here and is no fun to drive without a heater. Help??

I had the same problem with my '97 Stratus. There is a large resistor in the fan motor circuit that has died and needs to be replaced. It's well up under the dash, behind the glove box if I recall correctly, so unless you are a contortionist and have the tools, have a shop replace it.

The heater works every now and again. When it works it works perfect though. The blower works good just no heat.

Check coolant level first, and make sure it's topped up to proper level in bottle. Let me know what you find.

The heater in my 2002 Dakota works only at the very highest setting. There is no power at the lowers settings. The defrost light doesn't come on until that setting also, so definantly no power. When turned...

I'm assuming you mean the fan only works on high. If that's the case the blower motor resistor is bad. When the fan switch is on high it puts a full 12Volts to the blower motor. When you have the switch in any other possition, the voltage is routed through the resistor and reduced thus making the motor run slower.

2004 Dodge Stratus AC and Heater Problem

The area where you "hit" to make the unit go is your neighborhood for investigation.

Something is loose or not making a good connection.

If you discover that there are no loosenesses, sometimes a blower motor can get a dead spot, but typically, once going, the motor would not stop, with that condition.

Subject: 2004 isuzu ac/heater blower is not working

The resistors are in circuit only on the lower fan speed settings.
On the highest speed setting, power is switched directly to the fan motor.
Check fan power supply fuses,
Check power is available to the fan when high speed selected.
If all above OK, apply power directly to the motor to verify fan motor runs- if it doesn't the motor may need replacement/repair.

Heater issues

you need to begin by changing the thermostat. if you dont know how go to an autozone and they will assist you.

if that doesnt solve the problem you need to change the heater/ac blower relay.

You have either lost vacuum to the mode control switch or the switch leaks, this switch is in the ac conrol head in the dash. When you select dash, floor etc. this what changes where the air comes out.
