    Hi from down under (Australia)
    Thank you so much for your quick reply and commitment to help.
    The car has been modified for wheel chair use (from new) for an elderly polio suffer friend we have. To follow through a test/diagnosis I have to drive to the car each time unless I knew I can have access to you a number of times within a few hours. In this case I would bring the car to my home. I am an ex auto electrician so know my way around reasonable and can talk your lingo.

    You were right. The rear wiper and washer and defogger switches were flashing also.
    All switches still do their correct funtion including turning on/off the air conditioning etc.

    So here is where I am up to.
    Tonight I ducked around and followed through the sequence as I understood it from you to reset the HVAC module. I could not stay there to wait the 15 minutes. As I followed through the instructions I was unsure of a number of steps. (probably quite obvious to most poeple).

    Questions
    I assume that I begin with the ignition 'ON'. Is this correct?
    Do I press all buttons at once, or in the sequence you've listed?
    Do I contiue to hold them as I turn the ignition 'OFF' and/or still as I turn it back 'ON'?
    After having turned the ignition back 'ON' (completing the cycle), do I then turn the key off and wait 15 minutes before checking to see if the lights have stopped flashing, or do I have to leave the ignition 'ON' for the 15 minutes before turning it 'OFF'?
    There are 4 lights (LEDs) flashing. You only mention depressing 3 buttons. Is this still correct?

    Thanks again for your help.
    Cheers
    Chris

    Hi
    Thanks for your reply and the trouble you have gone to. We've just had night (sleep time) down in Oz but now I'm back online.

    As you suspected, your message is too small to read at all, so I would really appreciate if you sent it to my email.
    chris@chrispope.com.au

    I feel that I have a dillema. Due to my last expert's sleep hours and then mine, we missed contact. This has NOT frustrated or disappointed me. (It's a down side of globalisation) I've received a reply from him (http://www.fixya.com/users/kacomstock ) this morning and will c.c. this message to him. As I feel he was on the right track with the preliminary info I gave, I don't know how to sort out the financial side when the problem is solved.
    I don't know the guidelines you function with. Having said that, I would also value reading the doc you sent if you can still email it.

    Please advise me how to proceed..

    Cheers
    Chris

    Hi
    Thanks for the info. Trust that you had a good rest. I will try the sequence just as soon as the vehicle is back from Church. (Truly "only driven by a little old lady on Sundays" as they say.)


    I am attaching a c.c. of a message I have just sent to the new person who picked up my question.
    Please advise me how to proceed. What is your protocol?

    Hi
    Thanks for your continual interest. My emails told me more messages had come through, but despite continually going to this site I couldn't find them. I only just discovered the 'Veiw More Comments' tag. Duh! What a surprise.

    I found an online workshop manual which enabled me to not only to do the 'Abort' but also 'reclibration' and 'cool down test'. I read it up before ducking up to the car so I knew where I was heading with the problem. Lights were still flashing next time I started the vehicle after only doing the Abort proceedure. After doing the other 2 sequences it works perfectly. Completely reset. I realised the the fault had developed as a result of the battery having completely died one morning (not even enough to get a test light to glow.) Fan relay appears to work well.

    Although you and the other gent online have both been only too keen to help, I will set up the payment to go to you as you were the first to point me in the right direction, but I'll give both positive feed back if possible.

    Thanks again for your help.

    PS How did your 'gun fight' go with your outlaws? Still on talking terms with their daughter I hope.

    I got your email thanks. Some of the switch names were different (possibly as your paper was for a 'Town and Country' and this vehicle is a 'Voyager'. (Maybe Aussie label).

    It's 7 pm Sunday 3rd of April (and yes it is 2011 down here too).

    I live about 300 miles north west of Sydney. A major supply town on the edge of the vast dry outback. This year floods just broke the cycle of 7 years of crop failures due to drought. Only one life lost near us thankfully.

    Glad I'm not the only one caught out with the 'more comments' tab.
    Sure is incredible technology for a Chevy truck. I can't wait for my fuel light to come on on my Ford Falcon to see it the same thing happens.

    Well done with the family.
    Cheers
    Chris
    PS. Although we are in the same year as you, we do however drive on the correct side of the road (left) down here.
    And I just heard through moorse code that we may have electricity and telephone within a few years.

Hi there Chris 78302! There could be a few things that may be causing this for you. There could be bad wiring, relay's, control switches, and even the components in the a/c system. I am also wondering if the rear defogger may be flashing as well if so try this recalibration procedure:

CALIBRATION DIAGNOSTICS AND Cool down ABORT
Test can be aborted by doing one of the following:

Depressing Rear Window Defogger, RECIRC and Rear Wiper buttons.
Cycling Ignition OFF and then ON.
Control will automatically abort after 15 minutes from the time Calibration Diagnostics and Cooldown was entered.
The HVAC control module will return to normal operation or may indicate unsuccessful Calibration Diagnostics or Cooldown test by LED's flashing simultaneously.
If that doesn't work you may try replacing the cooling fan relay.

Try this first but i also need to know if the air conditioning system is working or not. Post back any other information you have on whether or not any systems don't work.

Thank you for the question and i will do everything I can to help you out.

    Hi there. Sorry about the delay in the response back I am in the west coast of the US so i was asleep. Looks like the delay caused me to forfiet your question. You will want to turn it off then on hten leave on for 15 minutes.

    HAHAHAHA yeah still on talking terms. Funny thing actually... the outlaws lost the keys to the moving van and guess who found them, haha. Oh and yeah it took me days to find the collapsed comments tab. same thing happened where it said i had messages but couldnt find them. Thanks a lot on the ratings. I dont even know how they work or how it is determined how which expert gets the money. I have yet to ask any questions i just like to answer them :) I am curious... what time is it down under? Its 2am here in my little town of Vancouver in Washington state ( the old west) guns and cows out here.

    I still think it is crazy that new cars now a days have "cheat codes" to fix computer problems and check engine/ oil lights. Heck my neigbors 07' Chevy truck has lights to remind you when to change the oil and when you are done you turn the key on to acc then hit the gas pedal 10 times in 10 seconds then turn the car off then on to reset the light.

2004 Chrysler Pacifica a/c doesn't blow any air in front vents, only defrost works


I have the same problem starting on mine. The first answer above is totally wrong. The actuators that control the doors are 12 volt electric no vacuum. There are three actuators on the drivers side under the panel by the gas pedal. I haven't worked on mine so I can't tell you which one it is but all are the same part and interchangeable take a new one and try it in each position until it works.There is one in the center console and one under the passenger side by the blower motor the console is for rear HVAC and the passenger one is for recirculation after installation it will have to be calibrated . Turn ignition to ON not start push the power button and the recirculation button at the same time hold for 5 seconds lights should start flashing leave it for two minutes or the lights stop flashing. If they don't stop recalibrate until they do. If they won't stop drive for eight miles and it will stop on it own. (but not fixed)

I have a 1998 Plymouth voyager and the climate control lights are flashing. I ran a test i found on the internet and got it down to two lights flashing(the ac and the recirculate). I got it to where the...


OK got your message on the other post (About the van) I am assuming that your Voyager is equipped with Automatic Climate Control. Follow the instructions below and you will get a better idea of what is wrong with your system.

Calibration/Diagnostics
1. To enter calibration/diagnostics test, set parking brake. Start and warm engine to normal operating temperature. With engine idling, turn blower switch to high. Turn mode switch to panel. Open all outlets. Move temperature to full cold.
2. Press and hold rear wash and rear wiper buttons simultaneously for 5 seconds (Until ALL LEDs illuminate). All LEDs should illuminate for 5 seconds. Rear wiper and intermittent rear wiper button LEDs will flash alternately during calibration/diagnostics test.
3. After approximately 60 seconds, if only the rear wiper button LED is flashing, calibration is successful and the system is okay. If rear wiper and intermittent rear wiper button LEDs are flashing, Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) are present. (See "Reading Diagnostic Codes" below)
4. To exit calibration/diagnostics test at any time, press the rear window defogger button, rear wiper button, or cycle the ignition off and then on. Test will automatically terminate 15 minutes after calibration/diagnostics is entered.

Reading Diagnostic Codes
1. Perform calibration/diagnostics test. If a DTC is present after calibration/diagnostics test has been performed, system will flash rear wiper and intermittent rear wiper button LEDs in sequence. Rear wiper represents code level, and intermittent rear wiper button LED represents code value.
2. Each time the rear wash button is depressed, rear wiper button LED wil cycle to the next code level in numeric sequence. After code level 5 is reached, rear wiper button LED will cycle back to code level 1. See table below.

My 98 voyager air conditioner only works in high. All associated items like the recirculating fan are the same way. Is this mechanical or electrical?


It sounds electrical. Check all fuses that have to do with the AC. If the fuse is blown the metal strip inside will be broken and possibly blackened. But it definitely sounds electrical.

The Rad fan on my p reg chrysler voyager 200cc


If the air temperature is high then this may be "normal" as there is a temperature switch which is powered after the ignition is turned off so the fan may continue for some minutes after you stop the engine. If it's still going after about 15 minutes you may need to replace the temperature switch.

The manual instructions are basically:

Turn the fan to 0 (off, far left).
Turn the air control to full defrost (far right).
Press the recirculation button at least 5 times within 3 seconds.

If you've done it right, the recirculation button light will flash a few times at about 1/2 second intervals.

I've tried it on mine and this works.
