Question about 2000 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

Hi. My 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan is blowing cold air when the car is in park. When the car is moving, it seems to warm up a bit, but nowhere near what it's supposed to be. Any ideas? Thanks.

99% chance it is the blower resister located behind glove box. Squeeze glove box in and pull out.
The resistor is right behind it, dealer part cost less then $20.
Dodge has had this problem for over ten years and until recently did nothing. Now they combine fuse with resistor, suppose that will correct it?

SOURCE: 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.

2000 dodge grand caravan sport 3.3L flexonly blows cold air


You say you can hear the climate control work, but the blend door for the heater may not be moving. If both heater hoses are hot, I would suspect the blend door.

2004 Dodge Grand caravan, heater will blow warm air for about 30 seconds. The air then goes cold.


How are your fluid levels? Low coolant flow can cause this. Does the heat go out intermittenly? i.e. when your idle will it go cold and then when you drive away does it get warm again. Could be a few things but, easiest is to make sure your coolant is at proper levels. If that all good try replacing the thermostat.

When in gear can does not move


Check the transmission fluid,with the van at normal temperature and after runnig it through drive and revers a few times then place it in park and check it with the engine running,if it's down then top it up with chrysler type fluid and get the leak fixed,if it's not down on fluid then get a transmission shop to look at it.

Heater slow to work


this sounds normal in very cold conditions! The air is never hot when you first start the car in any car, until the engine warms up, then the heater air will also warm. You could check your anti-freeze level for the first thing. If you don't have enough anti-freeze, it won't run through your heater to give you the proper heat
