It's a big job. Drain the coolant down, recover the freon in the ac system and disconnect the lines and heater hoses. Lower the steering column, remove the instrument panel assembly, remove the heater housing. Split the case halves on the housing and there you are. Usually around 500 to 700 dollars at a dealership.

SOURCE: broken heater core in 2005 dodge ram 3500

The Heater core is difficult to replace on the RAM since it is buried in the plenum box. The box has a convenient door panel that you can open to remove and replace the core. The catch is that the convenient door is on the back of the box and you have to remove the heater box to get to it. This involves removing the steering wheel, steering column, complete dash panel, evacuating the AC, draining the radiator, and finally removing the heater box. Once you have the box out(8-12hrs), the core is simple to replace.

You want to be sure that the core is the problem before you undertake this process. If there is a strong smell of antifreeze in the cab or a puddle of coolant on the passenger side floor, the diagnosis is easy.

Check that the radiator is full, not the overflow tank, the radiator. On a cold engine you can remove the radiator cap and check the level. It should be full. If there is air in the system it will affect cab heating and engine cooling.

Another good check is to feel the two heater hoses going into the firewall from a cold start. The hoses should warm up at about the same rate and get uncomfortably hot-close to radiator temperature.

If the core appears to be OK, the next concern is with the blend doors that divert air through the heater core. This is a common failure on the RAM. Check heatertreater.net for an explanation of the operation of the system and a fix for the common problems. The RAM has four different DC servo motor controlled air flow doors that are susceptible to failure and all of these need to be checked by either observing the symptoms of failure or reading the codes. The problems are easy to fix with the HeaterTreater kits, but the OEM dealer fix requires removing the plenum box as described above. It is a costly repair if you take it back to the dealer and are not under warranty.

1999 dodge 5,9 diesel warm heat only


First thing I would do is flush the heater core with a 4 to 1 mixture of water and muratic acid. Put it in there and blow it out both ways 3 or 4 times. Let the acid mix set for about 10 minutes before blowing it out with air. This is a cheap fix, if it works. $7 and your time. Got to say though, it only works about 30% of the time. The other 70% is to remove the heater core. Dodges/Chrysler su(k. To get to the heater core, you have to drop the steering column, and remove the entire dash. Then remove the heater/A/C plenum to remove the heater core. Buy a manual to do this. Way to many hidden screws and bolts. This job costs about $800 at a garage. It takes about 8 hours to do, if you know what your doing.

What I would do is type in 1984 dodge ram steering cloumn and hit search.The most common hits will be e-bay and probably kijiji or craigslist. You could also call your local salvage yard. Most of them are on a cross country intranet with other yards and could find one that way.

Sorry no pictures
Replacing the Front Heater Core in a 2006 Dodge Caravan.
1 Turn the steering wheel so that the wheels point straight forward.
2 Disconnect the negative (black) battery cable.
3 Drain the coolant by twisting open the valve at the bottom of the radiator. Use a clean container that holds at least 10.5 quarts. You will reuse the coolant later.
4 Remove the panel on the lower left side of the steering column and disconnect the parking brake cable with a pair of pliers.
5 Unscrew the 10 bolts that connect the steering column cover liner to the instrument panel and remove the cover.
6 Turn the key to the LOCK position and turn the steering wheel to the LOCKED position.
7 Unhook the gear shift cable and remove its mounting bracket.
8 Unscrew the two screws that connect the bezel to the instrument panel and remove the retaining clips. Remove the bezel.
9 Remove the two screws that connect the steering column shroud to the column and remove the shroud.
10 Remove the coupler from the steering column and intermediate steering shaft.
11 Loosen the nuts that connect the lower steering column mounting bracket, but do not remove them. Completely remove the two nuts and washers from the upper bracket.
12 Pull out the steering column.
13 Remove the interconnect and bracket that connects the instrument panel to the chassis wiring.
14 Remove the boot from the bottom of the steering shaft.
15 Use locking pliers to pinch off the heater hoses in the engine compartment. Remove the plate covering the heater core (the hoses run through it) and disconnect the hoses.
16 Unclip the connectors that hold in the heater core. Lift the accelerator pedal to enable you to slide the heater core out part way. Press the brake pedal to make room to completely remove the heater core.
17 Replace the heater core. Installation is the reverse of removal. The nuts on the steering column mounting bracket should be torqued to 105 ft. lbs. Torque the pinch bolt on the coupler to 21 ft. lbs.

I have a 1984 dodge ram w100 5.9l i turn the key forward one click and have no juice, tried two relays but no luck, the back of the fuse box shorted out when i moved it can't find the problem can you help?


This is a shot in the dark ... please don't kill me if I am wrong.

As I understand it, you have no power in your 1984 Dodge Ram Van 100. I had a 1984 Dodge 250 (manufactured in September 83). I had a "dead in the water" situation. It was caused by a short in a wire I had installed and later abandoned - for a auxiliary horn. All my fuses were intact. What I found (what the mechanic found for the tidy sum of $300.00) was a burnt fusible link that ran behind the brake booster. He terminated the wire I installed and replaced the link and I was good to go.

I also had trouble with the ignition switch many years ago. I could operate it by manipulating the actual switch (which is actually located low on the steering column) but I couldn't get anything to go by moving the key. The actual switch had stuck between contacts and several wires had over heated. I replaced that switch low on the column (mine was a 1983 part) and I never had another problem with it.

I hope this sheds light on your trouble today. Thank for using FixYa.com

Heater core


You have to pull the dash almost out to replace the heater core. first drain the coolant and remove the heater hoses in the engine compartment. Next lower the steering column. there are 4-5 8mm screws onthe top of the dash,and tw 13mmbolts on the sides remove the kick panels to see them. Also remove the airbag module on the tranny hump under the dash.when all is unfastened you can pull the dash back on the passengers side back and almost put it on the seat. you will see the heater core on the top of the heater box. Discharge the ac and remove the heater box fasteners in the engine compartment . pull the box down inthe cab of the truck r&r core. sound worse thatn it really is good luck

Heater core


18901fc.gifHere is an exploded view of the heating/air conditioning blower box. This contraption is located on the passengerside under the dash. I've changed heater cores on other cars but never worked on a caravan so not sure how difficult it'll be. You may need to remove a few cover panels to access this and the heater core #22 is located behind the distribution box #6 containing parts 7-18 and hopefully comes off as a unit. I wouldn't want to put it back together just looking at the pic. You may just need to remove the heater tube cover #4 to access the connections and slide out the core.....NAH couldn't be that simple!!! Hope this was of some help. Good luck.
