Hello Lisa, first thing i would ask you to check is that the controls are all being checked, the front and rear controls for the rear, also i have attached a link to a owners manual for you to save on your computer :)

check section 4 understanding your instrument panel, if that does not help then let me know and we can troubleshoot the issue, it could be a simple blown fuse or bad fan, also a lot of times the rear will not function because the front controls have it turned off. so let me know if you need anything i am here to help. :)

thanks, Lou.

I don't have a separate set of controls for rear ac or heat. Is that not standard?
Dodge Mechanic: Lou P., ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Well if you dont have a separate set then that would tell me you may not have rear heat and ac, does your front panel say anything about rear?

Just defroster.
Dodge Mechanic: Lou P., ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

any time in the vans that you have rear heat and ac you always have a set of controls for them.

also, if you go to the back of the car on the passenger side and look under the car you will see the metal silver lines going to the rear ac and heater, it is just behind the rear wheel , so if you go back there and look under and dont see them then you do not have the option,. :(
