Question about Dodge Stratus
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 resistor...chrysler 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 two...like 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?

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.

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
