    The vent

    The vent works for air or heat but will not come out the floor or defrost. when I turn the knob towards defrost you can feel the tenstion of the vent flap being stuck and when i let go of the knob it recoils back like a rubber band or after being stretched.

    This is why I think it is the vent is stuck rather than needing a new actuator. Either way I believe the from dash part has to be taken off? how do I do that?

    I have the same problem.. Did you figure it out? Do I need to take it and get it fixed or can I do it myself?

The bottom line is this, you must take it apart and inspect the cause of the problem, guessing is really not an option here.

SOURCE: 2007 dodge caliber breaks

They're telling you the truth, if they inspected your brakes and didn't find anything wrong, it is normal. I've seen this before...it's annoying, but normal--nature of the beast, brakes=friction=noise. Make sure you get a copy of the service invoice from your dealership that denotes that you brought it in and they inspected the brakes and didn't find anything wrong...it may be beneficial for you to keep these records. The warranty on your brakes is 12 months/12,000 miles -- NOT 36/36 like the rest of your factory warranty.

SOURCE: I have a 2002 Dodge Ram where vent selection won't change

Your heating and air conditioning system is controlled by the Body Control Module (BCM). Any diagnosis should begin with scanning the (BCM) for trouble codes to determine the source of the problem and/or which circuits and components are involved.

If a failed mode door actuator is, in fact the problem, the instrument panel must be removed to gain access to it.

SOURCE: need instuctions to change tail/break lights on 07 dodge caliber

popohead, if people thought it was easy, they wouldn't be here asking. Your reply is useless.

To remove the pins, look a them closely. Notice that there's two little notches cut into the cup that holds the pin. Use a flathead on each side to leveredge them out a little. If that doesn't work at all, you can use a pair of pliers to firmly grip the head of the pin and pull straight out. Quick firm pull.

Once the first pin comes out, the second pin should easily come out. At that point, firmly grip your taillight housing, and pull straight back: Don't try to wiggle it out, and don't try to lift it to one side or the other like a trunk or door. Just pull it firmly straight back like you would a dresser drawer.

Once it's out, the little wiring harnesses come out of the taillight housing with about a 1/4 turn, and the bulbs just slide straight out of those.

Good luck!

No air will come out of the vents when the ac or heat is turned on dodge 2007 ram 1500


Does the blower motor work? If not check the blower motor--wiring circuits--fuses.

If it blows any air, defrost--floor--front of dash? Maybe a problem with actuator under the dash.

2007 dodge ram 1500 air only blows out defrost vents not front or floor


You have broken doors in your HVAC housing. This is a common problem with the older body style Rams. Does require moving the dash, but it's a fairly simple process.

I have a 2007 dodge 2500 diesel and the heater will only heat up to a very light heat.


Mode Door 1.
a.This door regulates air flow to either the dash vents or defrost/floor. If you have air flowing only through the vents with no defrost or floor, this door is failing. From our experience, this door is usually the first domino to fail. Not sure why, just is.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->4.Mode Door 2.
a.When mode door 1 is set to divert air away from the vents and into the second stage of the system, door #2 chooses whether air goes to the defrost vents to the windshield or out through the floor vents in the passenger and driver's side footwells. Failure is indicated by an inability to choose between defrost and floor.
b.This door turns out to be the most difficult to replace. In order to replace the door, the dash panel has to be removed. It's still better than the dealer fix because you don't have to evacuate the AC system, drain the radiator, and remove the plenum box. But it is more work than the other fixes. When this door breaks, it falls in the down position, blocking the floor vents and diverting all air through the defrost vents. From a safety standpoint, this is good since you'd most likely rather have a clear windshield than warm feet. We suspect that a large percentage of customers will just leave this door unrepaired. You will have heat through the dash vents and to the windshield, just nothing to the floor. It's inconvenient, but you'll have to make the determination if warm feet are worth the extra work to fix the door. An extra pair of socks is easier.

Passenger side heat doesn't work in my 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan. There is no heat, only cold air, coming from the dash, floor, & defrost vents. There are dual temp controls for the driver &...


I really can't be sure off hand, but what you wrote looks like the control valves are sticking(these flaps allow air to go different directions at the vents). its located at the heater core(towards the left side of the heater core) under the plastic just under the dash. you can manually move them, encase they are stuck, they do stick sometimes. while checking the vent doors, make sure your vacuum lines are connected. also check to make sure your vent hoses are tight. I hope this helps
