A/c won't blow

Asked by Jun 07, 2017 at 04:43 PM about the 2003 Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have had the blend door issue and that fixed via
sheet metal screws so I am a constant recirculated
air guy. My issues is now after an hour or so it will
stop blowing and I have to cut the fan motor off for
about 5 min or move the "where the air blows"
selector to defrost then back to face and feet to get
it to blow air again. The fan motor will stay on the
entire time just not blow air and then I have to
"reset" it. Any advice?

Possibly the system is icing up, due to your mods, when you move the mode it allows the air to warm enough to defrost the unit so it an resume cooling.

When I change the air flow I just change it long enough to give it time to change the flows then right back to feet and face, Haven't noticed any ice and I don't think a 1 minute break would thaw anything?

It also does this with the heat


Temp sensor misread or a processor problem.

Ha that is quite the part inside the dash, I guess I will just have to deal with it.
