Question about 1997 Chrysler Town & Country

1 Answer

Trying to replace the passenger side blend door actuator switch.

How do I remove the large wiring harness and bracket that is blocking access. It has 2 large blocks with many wires attached to it. I also see that each of these blocks have a large nut and plastic plug in the center of each block.

There should be 3 screws around each adjuster that you remove to be able to remove the heater control from the heater box then swap wiring and install new switch back on to the heater box.

Testimonial: "I believe what needs to be removed is what they call the BCM wiring harness which is located right in front of the blend door actuator switches. It is located just to the right of the steering column."

How do i fix a stuck blend door on 2010 dodge nitro?


I would pull off the blend door actuator and swap it out with a new one. Or another option is to swap it out with one of the other actuators. The blend door actuator is interchangeable with the actuators for the mode-air doors and the recirculation-air door.

Disconnect and isolate the negative battery cable.

If equipped, remove the silencer from below the driver side of the instrument panel.

Disconnect the wire harness connector from the blend door actuator located on the driver side of the air distribution housing.

Remove the two screws that secure the blend door actuator to the actuator mounting bracket and remove the actuator

Heat comes thru driver's side vents, but blows cold air thru passenger side vents


You likely have a faulty blend door. It could be electrically, mechanically related, or even a broken door. It may be the blend door motor, or possibly the temp sensor.

Driver side blowing hot air passenger side blowing cold air


I'm having the same problem except on mine it's the driver's side that's blowing cold. Do you have the pictures in a finer resolution? I can't make them out and when I zoom, they are too grainy. Does the replacement require removing the dashboard? What's the general cost of the acuators? Are they readily available at like NAPA or other parts stores?

Problem with dual zone heating only one side i check control thermost botton is ok


Sounds like the blend door actuator. It separates the driver and passenger side from getting air on the AZC system. Here are some instructions on replacing it:
The passenger side blend door actuator is used on all models equipped with Automatic Zone Control (AZC). This actuator is located on the front of the HVAC housing to the right of the floor panel transmission tunnel and cannot be removed from the passenger compartment without instrument panel or HVAC housing removal.

NOTE: This procedure is for AZC Systems (Passenger side only).

  1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
  2. Remove the glove box door. See: Body and Frame\Interior Moulding / Trim
  3. Remove the lower I/P glove box door surround panel.
  4. Remove the dash assembly. See: Body and Frame\Interior Moulding / Trim\Dashboard / Instrument Panel\Service and Repair\Instrument Panel Assembly
  5. Remove the HVAC assembly. See: Housing Assembly HVAC\Service and Repair
  6. Unplug the wire harness connector from the blend door actuator.
  7. Remove the 2 screws that secure the blend door actuator to the HVAC housing.
  8. Remove the blend door actuator from the HVAC housing.
INSTALLATION - AZC (Passenger side only)


  1. In stall the blend door actuator on the HVAC housing and tighten the two mounting screws to 2.2 Nm (20 in. lbs.).
  2. Plug in the wire harness connector to the blend door actuator.
  3. In stall the HVAC unit into the vehicle. See: Housing Assembly HVAC\Service and Repair
  4. Install the instrument panel assembly into the vehicle. See: Body and Frame\Interior Moulding / Trim\Dashboard / Instrument Panel\Service and Repair\Instrument Panel Assembly
  5. Evacuate the HVAC system.
  6. Recharge the HVAC system.
  7. Connect and the battery negative cable.
Hope it helps! If you need more, just send me an email at familyguy77351 at yah I wil be glad to finish helping you with more detail.

Climate control will only blow cold air and the heater core is fine there is heat. when i turn the climate control to hot there is a clicking noise, when i turn it back to cold the click goes away


your blend door actuator gear is slipping. remove actuator and check blend door for free movement. If jammed, you may have to open the system to unjam. If door is free to moe, replace actuator. See procedure below to access blend door. Not sure you need a lift, as long as you can get the 2 nuts off under the truck.


Removal & Installation

  1. Position the vehicle on a hoist with the gear selector in NEUTRAL.
  2. Remove the left-side quarter trim panel.
  3. Remove the parts in the order indicated in the following illustration and table.
