Question about 2004 Chrysler Pacifica

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.

What is an engine cooling fan...can you feel it come through the ac vents?

The engine cooling fan is located on the front of the engine between the radiator and the engine block. You do not feel it through the ac vents.

I have a 99 ford contour se, yesterday my ac was running fine and then suddenly I smelled something and the ac stopped. At the same time my car started puttering/jerking when trying to accelerate. Today...

These are separate issues....the smell at the same time as the ac packing up was prob the gas escaping.....might have a leak gas no work... Prob the condenser hit by a stone

Ac problem at idle after converting over to 134a from r12

to convert from r12 to r 134 a the entire system has to be changed
that is condensor, compressor, evaporator, hoses ,the lot because r134a runs at much higher pressures than r12 ( nearly 3 times higher in psi)
it needs different gauges and has different fill connections so that the gasses cannot be mixed
to make it worse the oil used in the compressor is different because of the different gas and is not compatible with the r12
there was nothing wrong with r12 gas but companies and customers were "hoodwinked" into believing that the r12 was bad for the atmosphere and r134a was the answer
just as you have been " hoodwinked" by the person into getting a gas change over without being fully informed of what was involved and why
with r134a gas there has to be a fan in front of the condenser that works immediately the ac is switched on as the temp of the gas being converted back to liquid is much higher because of the higher pressure need to convert it back from gas to liquid
without that fan the system starts to circulate gas and so the evaporation of the liquid at the evaporator in the car is lost and no heat from the car is transferred back outside
what it means is this --- if you can get r12 gas , change the compressor back to an r12 compressor, have the system completely flushed, vacuumed down for at least 1/2 hour and then refill with r12
If on the other hand you have to use r134a because that is the only compatible compressor available then the evaporator , hoses and condenser have to be changed as well and that means a new ac kit basically
find yourself an accredited ac specialist shops and get quotes

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

2005 Dodge Dakota AC and Heater both dead but the blower works!

I would suggest changing the control head. You should be able to source a used unit from a local salvage yard.
