    Are all of you sure that you have properly functioning thermostats on the engine? Do your engines run at there normal temps? The "air valve" is tied to the switch on the console that you move to give cold or heat to the cabin. Follow the link and you will find it next to the heater core. Unless the console switch is moving freely with no resistance, you haven't lost connection to the rear switch.

240cpa is caravan does not have a heater control
valve and coolant constantly crculate in heater core . use the temperature contorol on instrument panel if you notice no change in heat your blend door in heater box is not moving . and as 240cpa mentioned make sure the t stat is not stuck open.

2001 Dodge Caravan heater blows cold air when stopped

Have you checked the coolant level? What you describe is exactly what happens if the coolant level is low. When stopped at idle, hot coolant is not circulating through the heater core, so no heat. As the engine increases in rpm's when you pull away from the light, the water pump is spinning quicker, and some coolant is making it to the heater core. So check the level, and if it is low, keep an eye on it to see if it drops again. That of course indicates a leak somewhere. Get it fixed, as overheating the engine leads to costly repairs and worse case a new engine. Let me know how you make out with this.

The heat in my 1994 dodge caravan does not work. The van will heat up and then I try the heater sometimes it starts to then it fades to coolness.

Sounds like a partial plug in a heater hose or the heater core itself. There's not a full flow of water and it cools off faster than its replenished.The hot water valve may not be opening all the way either. Backflush the heater core,run water from a hose the opposite way it normally flows,Thru the core to clear it. Check hoses the same way. Also chech them for soft spots the hose may be collapsing internally.If the engine is not overheating the water pump is probably ok . if it is running a little too hot the thermostat may not be opening all the way either/ Replacing it could help too.

2005 Dodge caravan is overheating, but there is no heat inside the van. I changed the thermostat and also checked for air lock in the system. Is the water pump the next thing to check?

Overheating can be caused through a lot of things But 1st on the heater pipe going into the cab ,through the firewall there is 2 heater pipes 1of them has a air valve on it so when you turn to hot the vacuum opens the valve and lets the hot water come through.or it could be under the dash on inside of firewall by heater inlet.BUT check your radiator for dust and dirt in the outer cores/Loose fan balt/water pump falty/Head gasket leaking/ plus others will all cause
the car to overheat .
So let me know how you get on Ron

I have a 2000 dodge caravan, no heat

Sounds like the air "blend" door might be inoperable. This door opens and closes a specified amount to regulate the amount of either cooled or heated air, as requested by the climate control unit. If the door is continually in the position which is bypassing the heater core (cold setting), the air will not get warm regardless of the condition/operation of the heater core. I'd suggest having this component checked.
