Front AC Delay

Asked by GuruSML51 Jun 19, 2019 at 01:58 PM about the 2014 Chrysler Town & Country

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Front AC is not consistent in working.
There seems to be a delay of up to 10 mins
or so, then it will turn on.  Sometimes there
will be a quick surge type burst of air then
stops for about ten minutes. Sometimes if I
turn it off then on a few times it will turn on.
But once it's on, its fine until l turn off the
car. It started as a 3 to 5 min delay and has
slowly gotten worse.  Back AC works great.
Any ideas at all?

Mine is doing the same...won't blow front air for a good 3 or 4 minutes, will have small bursts of air a couple times, then finally blow hard after the delay and works fine after that until the van is shut off. I have replaced the blower motor resistor and the whole blower motor with no results. Help!

I now have the same issue in our 2014 town and country.. Was wondering if anyone found the cause before I start replacing things.

I finally broke down and brought my van to the Chrysler dealership. They, at first, couldn't figure it out either, trying different solutions that didn't work. After 5 days in the shop, they finally found the problem after calling in a Chrysler engineer from another city to solve it. It ended up being the AC actuator mode door. Apparently it wasn't closing all the way, thus telling the computer to not blow air yet. After tearing apart the whole dash to get to it, everything works great now, but I paid a pretty penny for the labor!
