Air conditioner in 2005 jeep wrangler x

When I turn on my air conditioner the cold air only blows out of my defrost vents no matter what I set the control knobs on. On recirculated air nothing comes out anywhere. I had a car stereo put in last winter but not sure if that would have messed up air controls.

    Same problem as he posted for me

  • kcjeep Oct 22, 2008

    Same prob here...had my oil changed and the vacuum line was bumped off.  This quick fix worked instantly once I read this,  identified the loose tube and reinstalled.
    There is still something weird though...When I push in the clutch when stopping at a light, the engine seems to almost stall for a sec and then catches it's breath a couple times...I have a K&N intake installed as well...never had probs like this before the whole vacuum tube thing.  Any ideas what is making this happen anyone?

    Same problem with my '05 Wrangler Limited. I hope it's a disconnected vacuum line under the hood becasue Chrysler will charge a small fortune to fix it. :) THanks for the suggestion!

    Had the same problem and it was the hose, it had fallen right off. I push it back on and everything is back to working order.

    I had to drive without AC for almost a month where I live that could be a problem even with the top down.  Thank you so much for the fix it worked like a charm.

    All I can get out of my heater or ac is through the defrost.

Yeah, I would go up hill or pull away from a stop and the A/C would cut out and then come back once my speed was stabilized. It was a vacuum hose leak !! This mostly affected the upper dash blower fan.

The hose under the hood is located right next to the master brake cylinder. I am grateful for this website and the answer to my nightmare. For weeks i have been driving without air and with all the rain as of late it's been unbareable in there

Heat not working on 99 Jeep Wrangler. Blows cold air in vent and defrost.


You may want to check the two water houses that feed the heater core. they both have to be hot. (they are usually located next to the thermostat housing.) If they are cold first check the coolant level. Fill up if needed, then you may have to check of there is an obstruction by the housing or the heater core is clogged up. I would first disconnect the hoses and see inside the thermostat housing with a lamp. Also blow some Air inside the heater core to see if flushing is needed. Well if those hoses are both hot then that must be a problem inside the cabin with the vents selection. Either an electric switch or cable. But there are already a few things to check first.

2005 jeep wrangler blows warm air not cold


Well this is different since most questions now are about no heat.
If one ac line is cold and the other is warm, I would suspect a blend door under the dash is not working. The blend doors direct air thru the heater core and the vents.

Heater only blowing out defrost vents


Open your hood and find a "T" connector right near the battery. Follow the line down below the battery (you will have to get under the Jeep). You will see that the line plugs into a 3 to 4 inch section of 3/16" tubing that is plugged onto a black in color, plastic box. Use a razor knife and trim off about 1/2" of this 3/16" tubing as it commonly cracks where it fits on the nipple of the black plastic box. The vacuum cannot build pressure properly with these cracks in this tubing, and therefore cause the selector door to malfunction when operating heat and a/c. It is a quick and easy five minute fix.

When I turn my vent selector to defrost on the far right (air con off)the air conditioning comes on. The dash vents will blow ambient air, but defrost setting blows air con. Any ideas?


It's normal for the A/C compressor to come on with the defroster to dehumidify the air so the windsheild won't fog up under humid conditions. You can still control the air temp. out the vents with the temp. select switch.

2005 Wrangler X a/c only blows from defroster


Check under your hood for a loose or leaking vac line , The A/C system on your jeep uses manifold vac to move the air mix doors and with no vac the air mix door will move into the defrost position. Find your vac leak and that will fix your problem.

Jeep AC blows cold air at defrost and feet but not through vents


There is a flap that directs the air. the flap is controlled by a vacuum actuator. This is located inside the venting. The actuator is connected to little vacuum hoses that attach to the temperature control switch. Either the flap is stuck, or the actuator has gone bad.
