Question about 1999 Dodge Ram
We have a 2000 dodge ram van 1500 that overheats whenever we're running the a/c. What could be possible causes of that?
Condenser & Radiator could be very dirty on the outside,
as well as have leaves,feathers,etc between them
The radiator may just need to be replaced, as it is old &
The thermostat may need replacing
Exhaust Converter is surely worn out & partially blocked,
as they only last 12 to 14 years
Spark Plugs,if in there over 3 years,check for cylinder
misfires & fuel trim data
A/C System Overcharged or Air in there, from trying to
add to a leaking system

error code 0301 is Cylinder 1 misfiring. Check to ensure plug wire is on, if so, pull plug and check to see if needs replaced.
error code 0645 is Air Conditioning (A/C) Clutch Relay Control Circuit. It could be shorted out, or more likely the fuse is bad. Check fuse in box under hood on drivers side, fuse is about $15.

ONE SUGGESTION COULD BE TO SWAP THE RELAY FOR ANOTHER TO SEE IF THIS FIXES THE PROBLEM. IF IT DOESN'T, THEN PERHAPS THE COMPRESSOR CLUTCH IS STUCK IN THE CLOSED POSITION. UNPLUG THE CLUTCH TO SEE IF THE COMPRESSOR STOPS. HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND FOR AN HONEST RATING. GOOD LUCK

If you don't do much highway driving with your van you may have a carbon build up try some fuel njctor cleaner and mid grade gas for a tank or two If you go with the fuel additive rev your engine and watch for moisture and carbon from your exhaust contine to do this till exhaust is clear do not over rev ie do not hold it to the floor press he accelerator pedal and release
