2000 Dodge Ram Van 1500 Problems

HVAC Air Flow Switching to Defrost When Accelerating

The AC/heater (HVAC) system may unexpectedly switch to the defrost mode when accelerating. This system is operated by engine vacuum and should be inspected for any vacuum leaks if this problem develops.  There is also a revised vacuum check valve available to address this concern.

High Blower Only Due to Failed Blower Motor Resistor

The HVAC blower may operate on high speed only. This is commonly caused by a failed blower motor resistor. Chrysler has released a revised part to address this problem.

Automatic transmission may set code P1740

Some automatic transmissions may set a code P1740, torque converter fault. Our technicians tell us there is a revised transmission pressure boost valve cover plate to correct this condition.
