Heat/AC vent question
I have A 2012 Ram 1500 crew cab . My question is my vents on the dash dont seem to blow as powerful as my journey they work but dont seem to have the same amount of force. I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem. Also in the back behind my seat there are 2 vents in the middle and i cant seem to get much airflow through either,the floor vents under the seats work fine. Any help would be appreciated thanks

The trucks don't have the most powerful blower, but I don't think there is a problem. Quite a few people notice the air doesn't move as well as other vehicles.

My fix.....roll the windows down and floor the Hemi! :)

I ll have to try that lol. Mayby thats just how they are but the rear vents should have some airflow though. I hate going to the dealer but i guess Ill take a ride over tomorow they shorted me a quart of oil last week on my oil change I guess ill ask for that also

I noticed this lack of air velocity in my '12 Express too, and it's just a standard cab. My GM vehicles all seem to "blow your hair back" as they say in those adult device commercials...LOL!

All my old chevys had great a/c also but they didnt have a Hemi.Iguess I ll have to live with the low powerd blower

I never noticed mine not blowing hard. Maybe my other car has a really pathetic blower.

On the chilly days, i remote start my Ram & let it run while i put on my shoes
Then i open my door, turn the key, & crack a window open about 1/2", the blower seems to work a lot better when a window is partially open, after driving about 4 blocks, i close the window & it heats up quickly

I also preset my heater settings before i shut my Ram off for the day
I used to just have it set on AUTO, but i noticed the the A/C would be on more often than not, when it was 40 F out doors

I don't use my rear vents, nothing is back there besides extra clothes, map books, & tools
