204 Dodge Stratus Heat and Air Stopped all together

AS I was driving I had the heat on high and it just stopped working. I switched over to the AC to check but that was not not working either. There was no cold or hot air blowing out at all. What could the issue be? Thank you!

A Blower motor fuse could be the problem. Check your owners manual for the fuse box panel location...also the fuse purpose will be illustrated in the manual...hope this helps. As it is just a fuse replacement to fix it...still keep an eye on the function...if it blows the fuse again, you will need an electrical check for a short....Any other info would be helpful.

Check the fuse? If the fuse is OK, the it is likely the blower motor had some issues with those, and the Stratus was one of the cars that had the issue. I could explain how to fix it if it is indeed the resistor, but you would be better off searching for a youtube video on it... its pretty simple to change two nuts to remove the panel under your dash on the passenger side, unplug the it, two bolts hold the resistor in....simple, you can buy the part for 10 dollars if you do a quick internet search for "2004 Stratus blower resistor". But check the fuse first, if its good, then its the resistor. Usually they don't go out all at once though (although they can), you normally lose a setting or it would work on 1, but not 2 or 3, works on 4 but not 5 etc. good luck.

99% chance it is the blower resister located behind glove box. Squeeze glove box in and pull out.
The resistor is right behind it, dealer part cost less then $20.
Dodge has had this problem for over ten years and until recently did nothing. Now they combine fuse with resistor, suppose that will correct it?

SOURCE: i have a 2000 dodge caravan, no heat

Sounds like the air "blend" door might be inoperable. This door opens and closes a specified amount to regulate the amount of either cooled or heated air, as requested by the climate control unit. If the door is continually in the position which is bypassing the heater core (cold setting), the air will not get warm regardless of the condition/operation of the heater core. I'd suggest having this component checked.

SOURCE: ford ka heater blows hot air all the time

Your problem is a faulty heater control valve. The design used on these vehicles allows for hot water to flow constantly and compete with the evaporator as there is no blender door. You have to replace the valve and possibly the control head. Meanwhile, you can bypass the valve to have cold air

No heat in 2001 dodge stratus,changed Thermostat still blows cold air?

Check the coolant level. If its low you wont get any heat. If its full then I would suspect that the temp. selector on the climate control is faulty. Farley easy to replace. Your local you pull parts yard will have one for $20-$35.

Blower stopped in 2001 Dodge Stratus

check fuse. If ok there are resistors in the blower housing that give the different speeds to the motor when you select speeds at the switch. They regularly fail (burn out)

2004 dodge stratus heater/ACissues

There is a gate that switches over from heat to cool under the dash,it is operated by vacume.If the vacume acuator is not working,the gate my be stuck in between,which would cause the temp to always be the same.I would check there first.

My 2002 Dodge Stratus R/T has an issue with the AC. The heat works fine. When the AC is on it will blow cold air for a while but if I pull up to a redlight and idle for a few minutes, then it will start to...

Make sure your coolig fan(s) are running while the ac is on. I''m not sure how you now that you have sufficient refrigerant in the system, but I would also have that checked. Over filled systems can act that way too! Last but not least, high and low pressure switches should be checked, amd if all else fails, check the expansion valve.

What would cause the heat/ac blower motor resistor to burn out? i replaced the one in my 2000 dodge stratus and it worked only a couple of days. motor does work when on high.

Your blower motor may have too much resistance in it, which may need to be replaced. Also if your cawl vent is stopped up with leaves, it may not be letting enough air for your system which also cools your resistor block.

The heater in my 2004 dodge stratus doesn't blow out hot air while idling, but it does when driving. Could this be the thermostat?

Most of the time this (no heat at idle/heat when driving) is an indication of low radiator fluid. Check the fluid level while the engine is cold and on with the heater on high.

Fan not blowing heat out

I have a 2001 Dodge Stratus.... the same exact thing happen to me. First it only worked on high #4 and then it stopped all together. I just fixed it today. It is the BLOWER MOTOR RESITOR. I actually changed it myself. It is inside the car under the glove box. There is a little cover you can take off. You will need a tool to take off the 2 screws once the cover is off. And then unplug the old one and install the new one. Really easy. The RESISTOR will cost you about 40 bucks.
