I have a Town & Country with front and rear a/c. The front unit blows good cold air and the rear unit blows, but not cold air. Have checked the freon level and it is good. The unit only has one compressor and uses the same freon lines from front to back, just tees off to the front unit.

The rear a/c has its own evaporator and expansion valve. The expansion valve is probably defective or clogged.

oh my gosh. i have the SAME car and my air went out. today i took it to an independent who i trust and he said the rear evaporator has failed. he said it is a recalled part and chrysler should repair it. so i called my chrysler dealer right away and they told me that i already had that recalled part replaced. they said it would be $120 to look at my car (the independent did it free of charge). they said it might not be the rear evaporator. the independent said that since chrysler has had so many problems with this part, a separate manufacturer has come out with a part that effectively shuts down the rear unit and then the front unit can work. he said that part is about $85 and with installation, total cost would be about $149. so i can pay $149 and have air conditioning pretty good or pay $120 at the dealer and have nothing done and then get nailed by the dealer's high cost with whatever the dealer would be doing. HELP. i am confused and need some advice!

I to am having this same issue. I took my 2008 T&C in last may for the a/c they replaced something. I took it back in Sept. for a grommet recall and had them check the a/c again. The air did not seem cold enough especially in the back. they said it was the size of the cabin. That it just took longer to cool than my 02 chevy blazer (blows so cold). Please let me know the outcome and any specifics on parts used to solve the issue. Thanks so much firstname.lastname@example.org
I AM LOOKING FOR THE A/C HOSE ONLY ON THE HIGH PRESSURE SIDE
Rear system blows cold air and indicates proper charge, however the front system only blows ambient air.Are there separate low pressure valves for putting refrigerant in the system?
Heat works good both front and rear. All Blowers work. When You turn on the rear A/C it continues to blow warm air.
I recently took my 99 Town and Country minivan to get the front break pads and rotor done and also got an oil change. When I got it back, I noticed that the front A/C wasn't working. It's releasing...
There is a freon leak somewhere near the rear evaporator. I cannot afford to pay shop. I need help accessing the unit and replacing it. I plan to take it to a shop to have it recharged.
