Ok..that is a strange one.. I am going to hazard a guess and suggest you look to the AC compressor.

When you run the defroster the ac compressor comes on..typically whenever the outside temp is above 40 degrees.. the ac compressor kicks in to dry out air inside.

Often when it rains.. the windows fog.. you turn on the defrost.. the ac compressor tries to come on.. and.. there ya go.. rather there your serpentine belt goes.

Several things could cause this.. worn belt.. failing belt tension-er... or failing ac compressor..

If the ac compressor is frozen meaing it will not turn..when the electric clutch on the front engages.. it would cause the pulley to stop turning.. and the belt would have a hard time staying on a non rotating part.

Or if the belt tension-er is bad..or the belt is worn.. when the additional load of the compressor kicks in.. it jumps off.

Finally it could be a combination of all three..


Best of luck..

Serpentine belt coming off on a 99 plymout grand voyager


Verify that you have a good/correct belt then check your belt routing and alignment. Then check pulleys for faulty bearings. A free spin with the belt removed should be enough. Whats really common on those is the belt tensioner goes out

I had the serpentine belt replaced on my 1999 Plymouth Grand Voyager about two months ago. Everything was going fine with it, no problems or anything, until like a week and a half to two weeks ago, when I...


Check the alternator pulley for a wobble when the engine is running. WIth the belt off pull up and
down on the pulley, check for up and down movement. If the belt popped off, you have some movement on one of the pulleys, a bad belt tensioner, or just the wrong belt. So check the belt tensioner as well. And find the part number on the new belt and check online to see if its the correct belt. But Im fairly certain its the alternator.

I think you have a bad bearing on your alternator. The bearing can become loose and reseat itself for a while, then loose again. Could explain the battery light randomly coming on.

Have the alternator bench tested at the auto parts store as well.

2000 plymouth grand voyager 3.3 V6, loud noise in serpentine belt area


remove belt and check the pulleys. this belt routing is odd and its very tight. i have seen many failed tensoner pulleys on these. it should spin smoothly and quiet. and grinding or bumpyness in it and i would replace it. check all pulleys while your there. they are not expensive.

good luck,
Michael
