2002 Dodge Ram 1500 Q&A

2002 Dodge Ram 1500 Question: a.c doesn't work when truck is idle

My air conditioning works fine when I am driving. When I stop at a light or I am parked the air being blown in the cabin becomes warm. I've tried reving the engine to see if that would help but it does not. even if I am just rolling down a hill the air gets colder. If someone knows what this is I would also be interested in how much it might cost. Thank You in advance. -

If you push a paper clip in the back of the fan and push the rear plate in alittle bit and keep it there it will work. It is still working in my truck. -
Answer 4
