Question about 2006 Dodge Charger

2 Answers

I have a 2006 Daytona Charger, it is now over heat's. I put in a new thermostat it it still over heat's. The AC comes out hot until the car moves and then the car cools down, when I stop the car starts to over heat. Could it be the ATC fuse? The radiator fan runs but the small fan does not come on.

I just had the same problem with my '06 Charger - there was a crack in the radiator; the radiator was replaced so with labor & materials it was around $500.
My husband tried to see where the leak was coming from under the hood but the service dept said you wouldn't have seen it just by looking - they had to remove parts to get in there to it.

Ok when I have my heat fan on my 2006 dodge charger 2.17 it dont run hot but when I turn it off it do our when I turn on the ac it run hot

If the engine is running hot you may be low on coolant. Check this first. If coolant level ok, the rad fan may not be working to cool the engine. If the AC is operational, when you turn it on, the radiator fan should come on telling you the fan motor is ok. You still may have an issue with a fan control related to temperature. This can be caused by a fan relay/wiring/temp sensor/ecm. Make sure the thermostat is functioning properly as well

I have a 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan. Until recently the heat and air worked fine. The temperature gauge is registering to very hot but nothing but cold air blowing. after a few minutes the temp goes back...

First you need to put in a thermostat. On most vehicles it is not a hard or expensive job. The gauge going up to very hot is sign the thermostat is sticking and taking too long to open. The heat is fed to interior by hoses from same system as radiator / thermostat. If thermostat is staying open too much (because it can also stick open when going bad) it will take a long time to get warm. The heater box under dash has both the air conditioner and the heater box in it and if the door is stuck to A/C side you will not get heat. Door is usually opened by vacuum hose, cable, or electric motor. If you can look under dash and see the lever that moves the door you may find it is not moving when you move lever from hot to cold on dash. If cable driven you may be able to see cable not connected or door lever broken. But when engine reads warm on gauge - look under hood for round hoses (the size of washing machine hoses) that go from engine into passenger area and see if they feel warm. If hoses cold you are not getting warm water to system (clog in system or thermostat), if hoses warm then door to heat box not moving.

My heater in my 2006 charger rt wont blow heat

It's very likely that your heater core is clogged. Try flushing your cooling system and your heater core. That will likely resolve the issue.

2006 Pontiac Grand Prix gxp overheats after only driving 10 to 15 miles the ac off for engine protection comes on then coolant hot mil comes on. What is the best suggestion for this fix?

First check to see if fan motors are working. If they are then sounds like new thermostat And after you put in new thermostat don't forget to bleed the air out of system with engine running. Bleed screws should be on manifold on front of engine. If you don't bleed the air out then it will overheat. I had same problem but the only thing I forgot to do after changing coolant and thermostat was bleeding the air. Good luck

My heat in my 2006 trailblazer wont get hot

Air Temperature Control Blend Door Failure No Heat or no AC (dependes on where door sticks)

In all modern cars there is a tiny DC electric motor driven gear drive that moves a plastic door that blends heated and cooled air from the AC and the heater core, this is called (interestedly enough) the air temperature control blend door actuator. The motor that moves this door fails because the door starts sticking from warping, most common complaint is no heat but it can be no AC as well. To replace these parts (blend door and blend door actuator) you must remove the entire dash from the car. Always have this problem confirmed by a dealer or qualified repair shop as it is a very expensive repair.

Other causes of no heat in the cabin are engine thermostats that are stuck open (engine runs cold) or air bubbles in the cooling system.

AC Blows hot air though i replaced the compressor with a new one

For every AC unit there should be a thermostat which is responsible for detecting heat temperature. The thermostat might be faulty or there might be a gas leak somewhere along the line. It's a common problem in AC units...

I just had a new thermostat put in my 2005 pilot because only cold air seemed to be blowing - lukewarm at best. They also fluched and put in new anti freeze. It seems better but not great. Now my center...

Had the same problem on a 2006 pilot LX. Hot from rear heater because it comes from a separate heater core. Front heat low because ball valve faulty that controls coolant flow to heater core. The lever on the valve would move freely but the connection to the shaft of the ball valve was stripped. Ball valve may be located on the firewall under the hood. Ball valve very poor design.

There is moisture coming out of the AC vents on my daughters 2006 s40, usually during very hot weather and not until the car has been driven for several miles

The drain on the evaporator is stopped up,look for it directly bellow the ac lines ,where they go into the car,under the hood,it will be on the bottom of the blower box,use air pressure to blow into the drain to clear it out.
