Constant Air Flow Through Vents - Recirculation Door?

We have a 2001 Dakota Quad Cab and it has started allowing air to come
through the air vents when the truck is moving. Although the switch is
set to off air still flows through the vents as the truck is
traveling. I believe the recirculation door is a fault but I don't
know how to access it, so I can repair the door. Any help would be
great

SOURCE: No air flows from dash vents

blend door actuator. to fix, the dasshboard has to be removed, A/C has to be reclaimed, and coolant drained. it is not an easy task for the DIY'er. best left to a repair shop as it is an aggrevating and time consuming process.

SOURCE: my check engine light came on 2003 dodge dakota

This code is normally caused by a loose gas cap or a bad EGR valve. It is the code for the evap system on your truck. You can go to autozone and they will clear the code for you if you can not do it yourself. You may need to replace the gas cap and or the EGR valve if the code comes back up, these are normally one time things due to the cap not being fully tightened.

When trying to use A/C or heat,the air is barely coming out the vent but the blower motor is working. What could it be?


Flow though the panel registers (not vents) and floor/defog outlets can be impeded by clogging of the (actual) vents in the doors because air can only enter the cab as rapidly as it can be vented from the cab to the exterior. Find those vents and make sure they are unblocked and free of clogging material buildup. As a quick check for fault cab venting, crack open a window to see if register air flow speed comes up to match fan speed. If not, then something is blocking the door vents; possibly even ice.

2001 bmw 530i heat only comes out defroster all others blow cold , vents are working redirecting air flow , any thoughts


sounds like a trap door is stuck not allowing the heat to flow through your air duct properly ..check for any bad vacuum leaks around your intake or around your air flow leading to intake vacuum

Heater only blows out defrost


The defrost position is the default for safety so that air always blows on the windshield in case of frost.
The most common problem is a faulty blend door under the dash.
In most cases the door must be calibrated with a scan tool if you replace it.

2003 dodge ram quad cab 5.7 hemi. a/c and heater vents won't open or close all the way. when set to 'dashboard only' on the control, it barely blows any air through the vents even though the fan is on...


All your vents are controlled by two things. one of course is the dash swicth. when you turn the switch to the psition you want it at in pulls vacumm to a diaghram that opens the blow door for the setting you chose.In my years of fixing these its usually has been a broken vacumm line under the hood.start the vehicle and listen for a hising noise or like an air leak ;follow the vacumm lines that are visible. the other problem could be a bad switch element and dodges are notorious for these.hope this helps

Air feels cool, but not blowing enought air


I worked at a Dodge dealership for a while and 9 out of 10 times this is due to the recirculation door being broken, allowing hot air from outside to enter the cab of the truck. The dashboard will need to be removed to access the area.

2000 dodge dakota quad cab 4x4 v8 air conditioning set on max stops coming out of the vents when accelerating or pulling a load and feels like it loses power, it doesn't do it on the next lowest setting....


Sounds like you are losing too much vacuum under acceleration. Possibly a partially stopped up converter, or bad intake manifold gasket. Possibly a bad door actuator in the heater box also, and the loss of power would be a seperate issue.

No air or heat up to defroster and plenty of heat to vents


You can use a little shaving cream on the inside of your windshield. It will keep your windshield of fogging up. It also works in the mirrors in your bathroom near the shower / bath tub. If you don't believe me, do a search in google for shaving cream and windshield. Pretty cool, huh?
