2000 dodge caravan heating problems

I've read through a number of problems in the forum, but my problem seems to be different compared to all of them. When the car is at operating temp, the heater still doesn't blow hot air, i've checked and replaced the thermostat, but that doesn't seem to fix the problem. However sometimes when i move the temperature (hot to cold) switch (not blower switch) back and forth it heats up and blows hot air, but after a few minutes it cools down again and then after moving the switch again it heats up again, and cycles through accordingly. Anyone konw hwo to fix this?
Thanks in advance

    um, for the recalibration, my rear wiper motor doesn't work or so i was told, can the recalibration still work? and also if it doesn't work, where do i read the codes from? if this helps at all, this is a 3.0L, 6cyl engine.

If you are sure that your heater core is not restricted. then try to recalibrate the climate control panel. if your a/c system is not working then DO NOT ATTEMPT THE RECALIBRATION it will make your lights on climate control panel flash codes forever.
to reclaibrate the climate control panel just have the engine running. turn the mode to vent, the temp to cold, the blower on high, then press and hold the rear wiper wash and wiper buttons at the same time until the panel lights up then wait about 2 minutes for it to run completly when completed. turn off ignition and then restart the engine try to se if you have heat again. if it doesntwork post the codes it gives you after the calibration test.

    I reclaibrated the climate control panel and now my heater is blowing hot air but if I move it off of face and to feet it blows cold again and I have to reclaibrate it again to get it to work on face. I would like to be able to turn to feet and get warm air like it does on face. any suggestions. Thanks

I bought a used climate control panel for $40.00. It takes 10 minutes to put it in yourself. I have had heat ever since!

My 2000 dodge caravan shuts down and steering locks up after driving a mile or two. I've had the fuel pump and filter replaced and two different shops have looked at it and can;t seem to find any

Still sounds like the fuel is not getting to the carburator, or it is not working properly. Have the pump checked. It is possible to get a bad new part from the parts store. Also, check your battery cables. One might be loose and may lose connection after the car has bumped along for a while. You can take the car to an Auto Zone if you are near one, and have it hooked up to their computer diagnoser to check for engine problems.

Heating problem

I suggest getting a Haynes repair guide for that model at your parts store. It will show you the major connections and how to get at them. You can compare what you see to what the book shows as the major components and then decide what to do.

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.
