98 caravan outside air always coming in

When I am driving on highway, the outside air is always coming in through the vents, although the fan is off. Air blend door is working properly as I can make this air hot or cold from the slider.

SOURCE: Blend door not working.

check the vacuum supply and vac lines from the control head for a leak

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: Blend door not working.

The bleed door controls air temp not where it comes out, dash, floor, defroster, this is most likely a mode control switch problem, that switch is on the ac control head.

SOURCE: The fan sounds like it's blowing but little air comes out.

The A/C blender doors on the 2006 Ram are defective and are prone to breaking. Call your local dealer and ask them if they've heard of this problem. My truck had the same issue and Dodge repaired it under warranty. Good luck.

I have a '98 dodge caravan. and the heat blows out of the defrost vents. only when im driving it though. even when the heater is turned off??

Hi Mikkicfh, I'm glad to help. The most common problem we've found here at the dealership is "DOOR PROBLEM" anytime you have a door in the A/C Housing out of place it can cause air flow from the wrong area. "MEANING, you could have the A/C control on panel, but the air is coming out on the floor. If you have your control on defrost and it's blowing out hot air while driving that means you have one or maybe more door problems. "WHAT IS A DOOR PROBLEM" A door problem can consist of different things. EXAMPLE: The actuator if electric, or Vacuum Pod if it's a vacuum operated system, These drive the door to the position that the control head tells them to go. The electric motor could be bad, OR the vacuum pod could be bad or not recieving vacuum. NEW EXAMPLE: The door that the electric motor or vacuum pod moves could be broken so it doesn't move at all. NEW EXAMPLE: If your vehicle has the old cable style TEMP DOOR, the cable could be broken or out of adjustment. This will also cause heat all the time. NEW EXAMPLE: If your RECIRCULATION DOOR is causing the problem and stuck in the outside mode, then everytime you drive the car it draws in the outside heat into the car. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Mikkicfh.

2005 chevy silverado steam through air vents

Probably fog.
Either the ac is not draining onto the ground, or the system is cutting on and off too much, or its not letting in enough fresh air. The fog would be from moisture inside the hvac box.

My fan made a funny noise and then stopped blowing on my 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan. What could it be?

I am assuming that it is the heater fan... ..
. the fan is loose and now is cocked to one side inside of the enclosure,,,if you take it apart and tighten the nut that holds the fan on the shaft,,, it may work again.... OR it may need a washer as it could be worn....
The nut could have come off the shaft and the screech you heard could be the fan coming loose.
Usually the fan enclosure is located under the hood on the firewall which is the little wall between the engine and the interior of the car.
Usually it is not too complicated to get to, not sure about the caravan though...

Air conditioner stop blowing in 2002 Dodge Caravan can feel cool air and vents when traveling down highway with ac power on. Just won't blow out

There is as blower motor resistor which is part of what makes your fan blow. So your fan isnt blowing but everything else works right? Thats what I would look @ first.

Wife has a 2006 Dodge Caravan, she said smoke without a smell was coming from her a/c vents, but only when using outside air not on recir. there was not a sweet smell , or a burning smell, but the outside...

Could be a leaking valve cover gasket or some other leak being picked up at the cowl vent and pumped into the van. Your heater fan fresh air inlet is at your passenger side wiper arm.

2000 Dodge Caravan air conditioner problems

heating and cooling fans are generally one and the same. changing freon doesn't always fix the problem... did you have the system pressure checked for leaks first.

Second determine if the vents are opening properly (switching from heat to cooling) basically when you change to cool it closes air access to the heater core.
