Your recycle door may have broken off and fallen over the suction duct to your blower. You can verify this by removing the blower under the dash on the passenger side. Reach up into the duct and if there is a plastic door obstructing the duct, it has broken off. With a little manuvering you can remove the broken door through this hole and you will have air again, just no control of inside or outside air. Dodge has redesigned the housing for this recycle door which is supposed to stop this from happening. The redesigned housing and door come as a unit from Dodge for about $30.00 and this includes the electric actuator. This requires removing the Dash to change the housing so if your not ready for several hours work, take it to a mechanic.

You need to clean the inside cabin air filter and you need to wash the ac condenser which is in front of the radiator, wash with engine cold and wash from the inside of the engine compartment to the outside be sure to get all dirt and bugs out of the condenser it looks like a radiator. If it still has a problem blowing then you have a vachum motor broke and you will need to listen for a vachum leak inside the car.

What couses the air conditioner to blow hard ans sometimes slow


It's been my experience that this condition is caused by a bad connection at the blower motor, or a blower motor resistor on its way out.

Sounds like a bad blower motor or resistor for blower motor. locate blower motor and give it a slight tap with small rubber hammer, if it operates replace motor, personally i would recommend replacing them both. .

Sentra AC


There's a 10amp fuse that powers the ac clutch relay and compressor. There are 15amp fuses that power the blower motor and the ac control switch. All of those fuses get power from the key switch. The resistor and fan switch provide the ground circuit for the blower motor.
I would want to know if those fuses are getting power, and if the control panel is working. You should be able to ground the blower motor and make it run on high, and that should not have any effect on if the ac compressor is running or not.
It could be a key switch problem in that the circuit is not strong enough to handle the load from the blower and the compressor at the same time.

Sounds like your blower motor when out, check voltage at the blower motor connector under the dash passenger side under dash, with key and blower on, if you have voltage blower motor out, also tap on it some time it will turn it on, but if it happens again you will have to replace it.

Air conditioner/heater does not work. It hums but no air comes out.


Hard to say exactly, but it sounds like you may have debris in the squirrel cage for the blower and has stopped it or the squirrel cage came off and the motor is running. Is air coming out anywhere?
