1991 dodge dakota heater vacuum air flow shutters son't move


Taking your heating box apart may be a really big job.
It would be good to check the vacuum supply at the heater box, and/or at the controls.
Lack of sufficient vacuum can cause the heater to not work.
The low vacuum could be due to a vacuum leak somewhere before it gets to the controls or the heater box.
Then, the heater box or flaps could be stuck or warped, causing malfunction.
It is all repairable, but can cost you a lot of time and effort fixing this.
God bless your efforts.

Heater fan control arm broken. Stuck in no.4 position. Need to know how to get access to enable me to remove/repair unit.


My 06 Dodge Stratus did this same thing after I had my transmission replaced. I thought the guys at the shop did it but come to find out the actuator that controls the knobs and the turning of the fans for heat and cool air had popped off of the turning mechanism. My uncle took out the glove box so he could access the back of the heater/ac panel. There should be a round mechanism that will spin back and forth when turning the knobs from cool to hot and 1-4 for wind speed control. On top of that know are small notches that hold a white, possibly grey "hook" style device that holds the turning mechanism in place once you change the settings from hot to cold or between 1-4 of the wind speed control. The "hook" style device may be stuck. Try prying the device off of the turning mechanism and getting it in to another one of the grooves on the mechanism. If you can get it to move you should be able to get it unjammed.

Hope this helps. If not, I have no idea.

Truck blew upper radiator hose changed that and thermostat still over heating think its air bound any way to bleed 2001 dodge dakota


remove the radiator cap, leave it in park, start up and let it idle. turn on the heater so the air gets out of the heater core. give it 15 or 20 min. after it reaches operating temperature. if needed, do it again. also remember your thermostat may be bad

Heater not working properly, doesn't get as warm as it should, fan is working, appears that the control that regulates the flow of air is not working properly


sound like a vacuum leak. you can check this by spraying wd40 very carefilly on the vacuum lines under the hood. the idle will change when a leak is detected. could also be a modulator valve or vacuum line under the dash. check this with a spray bottle filled with water. dont want the smell of wd40 in the cabin

1999 Dodge Dakota heater does not blow hot air.


It is most likely a closed or mostly closed thermostat, cheap fix and very common.

The heater in my 2003 Dodge Ram 4x4 will not heat up or gets only luke warm & only on the passenger side....any suggestions?


Cold on drivers side and heat on passengers side, actuators working properly and blend doors are moving. Heatertreater is for piece of plastic on actuator motor. I moved blend door by hand after disconnecting actuator and works fine, both sides freezing when moved in opposite direction.

Broken Wheel lock


You can try going to auto parts store and see if they have one, if not then you will need to get a damaged bolt/nut removal tool and remove all 4 and replace with new lock set.

2002 Nissan Altima - Heat doesn't get hot and doors get stuck


Did the switch break because it was stuck? If so, then yes, they will have to change actuators and doors. Does the fan work on all speed setting? If so then you do not need a blower resistor. The resistor pack only controls the current flow to change speeds of the fan.
