The gauge is supposed to move. Between 190 and 210 degrees. About a 1/16 to 1/4 inch movement with the needle. If it goes from middle(200 degrees) to hot(260 degrees) and back. Check the coolant level. Air pocket in the engine. Low fans come on at about 210 degrees. High fans come on at 225 degrees. High fans come on when the A/C is turned on. And it works.
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.
the cab heater fan?, there can be 4 fans on some cars. front condenser, 2 on rad, and 1 in cab heater box. the cab fan? does it fail on high too? it has a switch, (marked fan speed) the switch is bad ,if low speed are dead. and high are good. or wiring to it , the motor or the fuse. even a cracked fuse, change the fan fuse to a new fuse.
The fan speed resistor is the problem........when you are on full speed the current bypasses the resistor and this is what gives you the fastest speed from the fan motor.......on 1, 2, or 3 speed setting, it is directed through the fans speed resistor circuit
It is located in the air box behind the glovebox on the interior of the car passenger side
This is a common issue with most vehicles. The blower motor uses a resistor to control the fan speeds. Once the resisters burn out, making them inoperable, it will only work on high position. The saftey is that it will work on high only, so the vehicle will have some type of air movement, and then the heater/cooling control can be used. Craig
