Q: Blower not working on 2005 Dodge Ram 1500

When I have my blower at full blast it feels like its on one. The heat and AC is hot and cold, just not enough air is blowing through the vents. When its one full blast though, it sounds like its blowing, just not enough air flow.

Check your blower motor operation. Listen to the motor to see if it changes speeds when you turn the Fan speed knob. If the motor changes speeds, the motor and associated resistor etc are working properly. The recirculation door is likely broken and blocking the air flow coming into the HVAC housing from the outside air inlet. If the recir door is working properly you will hear the change in air flow when you go from outside air to recir. You can inspect the Recir door by removing the blower motor and visually looking at the flapper door with the aid of a mirror. Replacement will require partial removal of the HVAC housing.

Where is the HVAC housing and could a tipical man with the skills to install ceiling fan do the job?
It sounds like the cabin air filter is plugged. These are usually located behind the glove box or below it. Alot of times just cleaning the filters helps alot by knocking out the dust or using a air hose on them.
