I have a 2002...

I have a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500. I'm only getting heat on the passenger side. The truck does not have dual heat controls. I replaced the heater coil. No change. Is this a blend door problem.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the coolant level? Has there been any leaking from the hoses?

Coolant level is good.

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

I had the heater coil replaced. Did not change anything.

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

No. Thanks

This is typically the Blend Door & / or Actuator/s that cause this issue
I have a 2002 Dodge 1500 4 door 4x4 with same issues & it is a pain to diagnose & repair
I am surprised the person that replaced the Heater Core did not identify the problem, as the Dash had to be removed .......
Here is a great video by "Heater Treater" that knows these trucks

Ok. You confirmed my suspicion that the problem is most likely the blend door.

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.
