We started noticing a musty smell coming from our vents. The smell is only present when the vents are on. It is horrible. We took the van to the dealership where we always have it serviced. They want $110 just to see where the problem is. I am not the only one who has this problem, they need to recall the parts that are causing this problem and fix it. I will never buy dodge again. Way to many problems!!!!!! And they fight tooth and nail not to fix their own poorly engineered vehicles!!!!

Musty smell whenever the A/C units starts and from the drivers door when the window is opened.

Same problem, with musty odor, smells like urine when AC is first turned on.
Just started this summer 2011. Where is the AC exit pipe???
"REPLACE THE EXIT PIPE AND PUT A SILICON TO DRAIN THE WATER OUT SIDE THE CAR" post a picture please

Bought this van used for my husband to use for work. I smelled the smell immediately the day we got into it to test drive it. Now I refuse to let the heat or AC get turned on if I'm in the vehicle. It is disgusting. I'm glad to know that there is info available on what we may be able to do to fix it but this van is already starting to tick me off. This is why I always buy new with good warranties. Ugh.

Moldy smell, especially when using AC but also when using heat. Haven't fixed yet. Seems to go away a little bit after the vents have run for a while, but that may also be our noses adjusting. Car does not smell when vents are not on.

I have the odor...I will use AC coil cleaner if I can get to the evap coil and maybe find the coating if not too expensive. Thanks for the info!
