Customer Question
I have a 2013...

I have a 2013 Ram 1500 that is only blowing heat on the passenger side of the cabin. The operating temp of the engine is 185-190 Degrees. The fan works fine. It has the large uconnect touch screen radio. Is there a re-calibration sequence for this truck that might solve the problem? Is this common?

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the device aftermarket, or did it come with the vehicle?

Factory heater

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Ram 1500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have tried looking for others that have a similar problem online.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of.

Welcome to JA my name is Mark.

Do you have the dual zone temperature control system or is it a single zone system?

no

single zone
Dodge Mechanic: Mopar Certified, Dodge Technician replied 6 months ago

Thanks for the reply, with the single zone system, there is only one temp door in the heater box that serves both sides. If you only have heat on the passenger side then it is an indication of a heater core issue that would mean replacing the core.

I hope that helps, let me know if you need anything further. Thanks.

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
