Question about 1997 Dodge Stratus
The climate control head is most likely your problem , chrysler has alot of problems with the HVAC heads

SOURCE: There is no air flow
You need part GM Part number 89018675 or ACDelco 15-73596. The Mode Selector Actuator. What happens is the part is a CHEAP part POORLY designed and when it goes to turn the flaps inside the HVAC unit its the plastic gear slips instead of turning the flap!!!
Just to forward you you might want a deal to install this art for you unless your good at fixing your own vehicle, because you need SMALL sockets and a lot of patience to get this part in!!!
The part is ALMOST directly above the steering shaft for your steering wheel, so theres a lot you got to remove before you will even see them!!!
I only recommend you to have a dealer put this part in for you, unless you have your own service manual!!
Because there is 5 of these darn things and if you pick the wrong one you will have to do it all over again!!!
3 on the Drivers side and 2 on the Passengers side!!
But replacing this part SHOULD solve all your problems!! AS it did for me and i was having the same issues as you have described!!

common problem, check under dash by the gas pedal if control arms are muving went selecting from ac to heat cuz this it is the control for the vents to go from ac to heat and to defrost.

I had the same problem and found that the vacuum tube located behind the battery was cut. The tube is about the size of an ink tube inside a ball point pen. The size is 5/32" and can be purchased at most auto parts stores. A quick splice and you will be back to cooling.

It sounds like the blend door actuator which diverts air from defrost to vent to the floor.
The bad news is it's a bear to get at. It's located behind the glove box.
