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 &
clogged inside
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.

SOURCE: 1500 Conversion Van AC stays on, van overheats. Pulled the AC clutch fan relay and it fixed the overheating thus far, but really need the AC this time of the year. Please help.

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

The most common cause is not enough air flow thru the radiator, because of a cooling fan problem.

I had a similiar problem on my 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 Conversion Van. It ended up being a partial collapse of the catalytic converter which didn't allow adequate exhaust. The problem only showed itself because I could not get over 55 mph going up a small hill.
