Wife is warm, I'm cold!!
 
Hello everyone!
I've searched and found similar complaints.
So what gives on my 2002? Why is there hot air on the
passenger side and cold on mine? (dash vents)

As long as the wife is happy, I wouldn't worry about it... But, seriously, sounds like you might have some blockage in your vents. Have you had a rodent problem at all? They like to get in where it's nice and warm and build their nests... Just a thought.

NOOOOOOOO. ohhh its like telling someone they have cancer. i have researched a/c heater problems when my recirc door went out. what you have is a blend door issue.
the blend door is controlled by the little blue/red knob or slider if you have dual zone, which if you do that means you have two blend doors which is worse...... anyway getting to the point the fix involves taking the entire dash out(almost impossible RAM you dodge!!) then you have to take out the a/c heater after draining it and disassemble the plenum then put in new blend door(s).

I hope i am wrong and i hope you don't have to experience what i have read about..... good luck on this man, really.

Did you test the Heater/AC controls on the dash?? I'd look at the dual zone control first and make sure you're getting power out the driver's side control. I work in a scrap yard and that's the second thing we sell...first is the cup holder.

take a look at the website www.heatertreater.net
2002 - 2008 dodge ram
http://www.heatertreater.net/dodge-ram-02-08

if you have the earlier 2002
http://www.heatertreater.net/dodge-ram-95-02

watching the videos may answer your questions, but they also have a write up

all together there are 3 YOUTUBE videos covering the Ram
but several other Youtube sites cover the issue too

Good Luck

After I found out it wasnt the blend door, thermostat, fluid, I figured it was the heater core. I took it to a mechanic and had them flush it, It solved the problem and cost $43.00. I'd suggest trying this first before you do the rest.

You can flush the heater core yourself. Just undo the hoses leading to the heater core, on my truck they were both on the passenger side valve cover, just simply unclamp and spray both ways with a garden hose till the water runs out clear. You can also grab a funnel and dump a bottle of mean green or some other all purpose cleaner in there if you are so inclined.
