I have searched high and low and haven't been able to find any similar problems as I am having.
I see many 4th Gen Ram owners replacing the blend door actuator behind the center panel (radio area) but the actuator making the horrible clicking noise on my truck is directly behind the glove box.
A couple of questions.....
1.) My heater blower motor will be stuck on low sometimes. No matter how much you crank it up, it barely blows air. Is this a symptom of the clicking actuator as well or do I have other problems? The symptoms both came up at the same time.
2.) When the blower motor is working, no heat at all is coming from the drivers side vents. The passenger side warms up fine. Could this bad actuator cause such a thing?
3.) My Dodge Stealer states that this has been repaired once under recall and can no longer be covered. Does this seem legit?
4.) If I replace this actuator myself, do I still need the dealer to flash the computer???
Finally, if anyone knows what this actuator actually does, or has a diagram of the HVAC system, I would appreciate taking a look at it.
I HAVE HAD THE EXACT SAME ISSUE. I have had multiple actuators replaced by the dealership, and now they are telling me they will not cover it under the warranty. There are 4 actuators, I can get to three of them. Anybody know how to get to the 4th (and hardest to get to)? The video clip for the center-console Laramie only shows the first 2…
So now, In calling the folks in detroit and my local dealership (in Fayetteville, NC, which is notoriously bad for service) I have been told it is a $1,000 repair bill, but they will knock down the price (special deal just for me, wink wink wink) to $600. What the hell!!!
I've been driving around for a while with the A/C issue. When I find time, I'm going to have a different dealer take a look at my truck.
