Question about 2004 Chrysler Pacifica

1 Answer

AC/fan suddenly stops and dinging gas gauge

  1. Shortly after I started the car yesterday the fan on the AC suddenly stops; no ac, no vent, nothing. Everything else is working; CD player, navigation, radio, wipers, etc... Just nothing out of the air vents. Could it be a fuse?
  2. regardless of how much gas is in the tank, on occasion the gas gauge drops down to empty and dings, again and again and again.

    The gas gauge fluctuates between half full and empty. The warning light keeps coming on and dinging that we have an empty tank. We just put in a half a tank of gas yesterday.

    Hi, I have the gas gauge problem. It drops from half tank to empty and dings...the most frustrating noise when driving. I have counted the dings and have had 41 plus in 15minutes of driving. I would appreciate any advice or help anyone can offer.

    Same problem with the gas gauge. It's fine when the tank is completely full. It starts to "drop-ding-drop-ding-drop-ding" around 1/2 tank & continues until slightly below 1/4 full. VERY annoying!!

    I hit a hole in the road and my heater blower stopped working. Checked the fuse & it was ok. I can't believe it would burn out at that exact moment-any ideas?

    The gas gauge gets to half tank and just drops to empty.

My fan stopped blowing too!! I was worried that my compressor had went out. The mechanic said that the blower had burned out and he charged me 169.00 for the part and 50.00 for labor.

I have a 2004 Pacifica with 58K miles.

Check both fans for free turning and no bearing noise (engine cold). Replace any motors that are suspect. You need to verify that the fans come on--turn on the A/C which should force the fans to run all the time. If they do, that eliminates the fans, relay, fuse, and computer. The temperature gauge should be driven by the computer with information from the temperature sensor, which also controls fan operation when the A/C is turned off. If the temperature gauge is driven from a different source, then the temperature sensor would be the place to look. Both fans should turn on shortly after the thermostat opens releasing water from the engine into the radiator (feel the upper hose). Use compressed air to blow out all the bugs and other debris from the radiator core (from the engine side). I hope this helps.

AC dead? Acting strange like a Stephen King novel

do not interfere with this AC system ,you may be able to change the fan motor but be careful with the AC pipes ,if the pipe cracks and gas escapes it can cause frostbite in about 1 sec flat .Now the most likely cause of the air flow in the front not working correctly is because either its got a split rubber pipe that connects to the operating valves or the diaphram in one of the valves has split which means a replacement operating valve ,if you listen carefully you mey be lucky and hear a hiss somewhere

Today the A/C stopped blowing cold air yesterday it was fine, Nothing but hot air was coming our of vents

Look for leaks around the A/C hoses and compressor. You may just be low on Freon. When the pressure in your lines (amount of gas in your ac lines) is low, the ac will just cutout hence blowing hot air. try adding some freon.

My Cars temperatue gauge is

the rad must run as soon as AC is put on ,some cars have a pressure switch that put the rad on when the gas pressure in the ac system goes up with temperature ,cheapest way round this is to connect fan via a relay to the ac pump feed so as soon as ac is turned on fan comes on
