More than likely you have a defective servo controller that opens and closes the fresh air door. It is located behind the glove box on top of the plenumn (air duct).

Inside cab blows out hot air controls are off but air still comes out


OUTSIDE AIR: Press this button to direct the system to use outside air.
Pressing the OUTSIDE AIR button will cancel the RECIRCULATION button.

RECIRCULATION: Press this button to limit the amount of outside air entering your vehicle.
This is helpful when you are trying to limit odors entering your vehicle or attempting to quickly cool down the interior. Pressing RECIRCULATION will recirculate air continuously.

RECIRCULATION is used when the fan control is OFF to limit odors, outside air and dust from entering your vehicle. All button lights will go off. The last setting selected will activate when the blower is turned back on.
Pressing the RECIRCULATION button will cancel the OUTSIDE AIR button. To return to normal operation and to prevent stale air, be sure to return the OUTSIDE AIR.

Between HEATER and BLEND mode, outside air is forced to reduce window fogging. If the RECIRCULATION button is pressed, the LED indicator will flash three times indicating that forced outside air is activated and RECIRCULATION is not available.

I think what your experiencing is normal. If you want to keep cold air form coming into the cabin, press the recirc button.

I hope this helped, icon_e_biggrin.gif

My 2006 Ram 2500 Diesel cab heater blows cold are out the driver's side vents and hot air out the passenger side. I can't get the cab warm in the winter unless I place the heater in recircula


CHECK all the vent hoses, are they connected, no ob strucctions, when the last time you replaced the cabin air filter ? do you have one? look @ your owners manual, also, you may need to have several heater controls, or other control on as well, see owners manual, anything fall into the defroster vents ? replace thermostat @ engine. see how this works for you, good luck

2006 Dodge Ram Mega Cab 1500 4x4 needs AC Improvment Can I upgrade the AC Compressor to get better preformance


Compressor change should have no effect, presuming it is working correctly. Have a qualified shop diagnose the system, there are tons of items involved, pressures, tempratures, heating system, etc. Remember that you are heating OUTSIDE air unless you are using recirculation setting...Hard to lower outside air to cool during the short time that the air is in the evaporator coils.

Recirclation light blinks on and off and will not stay on anf fan does not blow at full force when it's switch to level 5.


{: ) Regardless of the blower motor switch position, recirculation is available only in the panel and bi-level mode switch positions. Including the OFF position. The mode switch must be placed in either the panel or bi-level position before the blower motor switch is placed in the OFF position. In order to reduce windshield fogging, outside air is circulated when the mode switch is in the defrost or defog positions. If the recirculation switch is pressed into the ON position when the mode switch is in an unavailable mode position, then the recirculation switch LED will flash 3 times. If the HVAC control module detects a fault with the recirc door the HVAC control module will try to drive the actuator for a predetermined amount of time, to outside air, which is the defaulted position for the recirculation actuator.
As for your blower not full force at level 5, check first the BLWR fuse 40A at the underhood fuse block. If its okay, most likely you have a malfunctioning blower motor resistor assembly.

When i press the ac button it blinks three times but does not turn on. 2007 Tahoe LT


If your vehicle is equipped with automatic climate control, this should help.

Recirculation Operation
The HVAC control module controls the air intake through the recirculation actuator. The recirculation switch closes the recirculation door in order to circulate the air within the vehicle. The outside air switch opens the recirculation door in order to route outside air into the vehicle. Regardless of the blower motor switch position, recirculation is available only in the panel and bi-level mode switch positions. Including the OFF position. The mode switch must be placed in either the panel or bi-level position before the blower motor switch is placed in the OFF position. In order to reduce windshield fogging, outside air is circulated when the mode switch is in the defrost or defog positions. If the recirculation switch is pressed into the ON position when the mode switch is in an unavailable mode position, then the recirculation switch LED will flash 3 times. If the HVAC control module detects a fault with the recirc door the HVAC control module will try to drive the actuator for a predetermined amount of time, to outside air, which is the defaulted position for the recirculation actuator

Air feels cool, but not blowing enought air


I worked at a Dodge dealership for a while and 9 out of 10 times this is due to the recirculation door being broken, allowing hot air from outside to enter the cab of the truck. The dashboard will need to be removed to access the area.

Air conditioning switch goes off and on while recirculating air


If I understand correctly the A/C light goes on and off. If so, try to gently push the switch to the side(Not in) while the A/C is on. If this keeps the system working, you need a new control assy(Complete control head)

Problem with the heater in cab to outside air switch


It sounds like the cabin air filter - sometimes called a pollen filter - maybe be blocked or frozen up.

Hope this helps you a bit. If it does, a "Fixya" rating would be much appreciated. If it doesn't
help you, I'd be grateful if you didn't bother with a rating at present - they can't be increased later
if I do manage to solve your problem! Just come back and tell me what you found. Cheers, D

Climate controls


recirculation mode only switches the system from inside or outside air......if it only blows out the defrost the vacuum supply is bad....if its stuck on the floor it can be a bad actuator or control head
