Rear heat not blowing on 05 grand Caravan

Have a 05 grand caravan whose rear air controls blow great when the temperature control is moved to the cool position, however, once moved to the heat position, the air gradually stops coming out of the vents, but the blower is still running the same speed as evidenced by the sound of the motor in the rear. How and where do I check air door and vacuum operations for this system ..... or is it something else completely maybe? Also, would it be related to the front system taking an unusually long time to heat up?

    Thank you, the heat does seem to be blowing up front ok. It just takes an unusually long time before it blows hot. I suspect a possible thermostat starting to stick open but that doesnt solve my rear heater control issue. Whenever the temperature selector in the rear is placed on heat,... the air flowing through the rear vents slowly stops altogether. Yet in the cold position, the air flows through massively. I suspect a air flow door not opening correctly but not sure where to look or whether or not to start pulling the headliner out to see if the problem lies there first. Got any ideas?

    Sorry if I misunderstood your directions, but are you suggesting I need to replace the blower motor or is that where the intake actuator door is located? The rear blower motor seems to be working fine regardless of when the overhead rear temperature knob is on hot or cold. The problem is that when it is dialed to warm air,.. the air gradually stops flowing out of the ceiling ducts altogether, but the rear blower is still blowing hard. Almost like someone is placing a hand over the intake of a vacuum? Make any sense? I did some testing around today and found something else interesting out. When you turn the overhead rear controls off, and use only the fan controls from the front dash to control the rear air, the air flows fine both on cold and hot temperatures?!?!? The problem only seems to show up when you try to let the overhead rear controls be used independently of the front dash controls, and only when the temp dial is turned to warm.

If you have the heater control up front on the floor or on defrost you should check that the heat is not blowing from under the d/p seats. If you move the heater control to dash you should have it coming out the top vents.

You could be having a coolant problem and need to check that first, If coolant level is normal you might have a thermostat going out. Both will cause your heat not to warm up at normal speed. If you need any thing let me know.

    To remove the right quarter trim panel where the the blower motor is.
    First remove the rear seats.
    remove the plastic plugs from the trim panel that is being removed, Use a flat bladed screwdriver
    Remove all mounting screws with a screwdriver and release the mounting clips. Disconnect any wire connectors from accessory power outlets, if so equipped
    Separate the trim panels from the body.

    remove the screws securing the blower motor housing to the heater/air conditioning unit (one screw is located on the evaporator cover)
    Twist the motor out of the housing and disconnect the wiring connector.

    Installation is the reverse of removal.
    This is where the motor is hope this helps.

2006 dodge grand caravan , there are 3 knobs for heat and a/c control , the first one to control the rate the air blows out, second temperature control third is direction , I have rear heat it's blowing ,...

Had similar problem with Chevrolet - took everything out to get to switches and ran electrical check - found that the thin metal connections had been worn off on those wires. Had to replace the entire 3 part panel or jury rig fan. The same can happen to the selector and the butterflies may not be responding. Could be that a link onto a butterfly has come off and not opening for the front. Try to find the butterfly which allows air to go to front and try turning it one way or another. If it turns and you get air - you know what is wrong - just not where link is that is not hooked up or if link is broken.

A/C on caravan only works on high

There is a front-rear blower motor relay control that is involved in the circuits. This control module could be the problem. The blowers bypass the resistors to run on high speed.
You may have to get a repair manual with detailed wiring diagrams to trace the circuits.

I have the 2001 GC ES with dual automatic climate control. The heat works in the front, but blows ice cold in the back, at all speeds, no matter how long vehicle has been moving. I'm starting to wonder if...

If you have heat in the front the engine cooling system is operating normally (waterpump ok) If the rear hoses were rusted out you would have front issues too due to collant loss. I sounds like either the rear controller has a problem with the temperature door actuator or an electrical problem going to the actuator. They sometimes have a heater valve which shuts off coolant flow to the rear heater core. It is located in the engine, where the rear hoses split to the rear. They are usually vacuum operated, possibly the valve or vacuum issue, check there. Feel the rear hoses under the van with the rear heat on. One should be hot and the other warm (this would indicate the heater core and valve are functioning). If the rear fan works the fuse is ok for the controller.

06 caravan front ac blows hot air rear blows cold ?

The expansion valve controlling the front a/c is not working correctly. Will have to replace valve to correct the problem. The best thing to do is take the van to a garage to have this done. It not a job for a home owner to try to repair himself without all the proper equipement. Hope this will help you.
