It's the climate control system. It will recirculate the air first until it gets the temperature under control.

    You may think that this is unhelpful but it's not a fault. The car automatically recirculates the air (ie the flap is shut until the climate control system can get the situation under control). Switch the climate control off or put it into manual or switch off the auto recirculate.

I have a '03 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport AWD that the heater only blow hot air when going down the road. Van has a new radiator and new thermostat. Sometimes the blower will not kick on for a few

If the problem is a lack of air flow from the vents, and you suspect the blower motor is not running at times, you would need to test the blower relay and blower motor for power and ground when it is not working.

The hot air from the vents begins to cool down when the vehicle is stopped or slows down.

sounds like a possible plugged heater core, restricting the flow of coolant. those require a special tool to remove, quick disconnect, just remove both hose from the heater core and back flush the heater core with a garden hose, NOTICE DO NOT DO THIS WHILE HOT IT WILL BURN YOU, this can make a mess, flush it both ways untill it flows clean and with even pressure, then refill the coolant and road test the vehicle to see if is changed.

2000 jeep grand cherokee, only blow out a little air even when the blower on hi,,you have to put your hand next to the vent to feel the air

you may have had something fall down into the defrost vent and it has worked its way down and is blocking the air flow thats trying to come out the vents,near the blower motor.also does it sound like the blower motor is spinning on high speed or at a lower speed,you could have a slow turning blower motor.

Air conditioner

that would be cause do to vibration. sometime going over bumps or a gravel road will cause the vent duct itself to vibrate loose and drop down some blocking the flow of air. it will do it to the drivers side first because the fan is located on the passanger side. and has more of a hold on the brackets..... bu that is what i would do and check the air duct behind the vent and make sure it has not dropped down blocking the air from flowing out freely.
