A/c and fan dropping to nothing while highway driving.

Customer Question
A/c and fan dropping...

A/c and fan dropping to nothing while highway driving. turning off and back non resets it, but within 1/2 hour no cold air movement. 2005 sxt. due to parking lot shudder problem, I'm guessing built around july of 2004.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do the vents feel cold? Is there a coolant leak?

If there was coolant leak, I would assume stopping and restarting wouldn't temp fix the fan.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '05 Dodge?

2005 sxt 3.5 L

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

Nothing yet. been looking for similar complaints on the Magnum Forum.

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

When first turned on with recirculate, cool mist out of driver side center vent.

Can you post the last 8 digits of the VIN and the miles on the odometer so that I can do some research on this concern for you?

Do you still hear the blower motor running and just no airflow through the vents??

No, I don't hear the fan motor.
Dodge Mechanic: Robert R, ASE Certified Master replied 24 days ago

Then most likely the fan motor itself is failing. Usually these take out the blower motor resistor also. So I HIGHLY recommend to replace both...

If the fan runs on high speed only, you probably still need to replace both because the blower motor likely caused the resistor to fail..

Keep me posted and let me know if you have any additional questions...

Thank you,

Robert

Since your answer didn't seem to take into account some of the information I gave you, ie. turning the car off and then on caused the fan to blow air again, I had the a/c recharged with a dye to find any leaks. Apparently there is a pressure sensor which shuts down the system when Freon pressure drops too low.

You stated: " I had the a/c recharged with a dye to find any leaks. Apparently there is a pressure sensor which shuts down the system when Freon pressure drops too low."

When the system is low on Freon it can shut off the A/C Compressor but it does NOT shut off the Blower Motor that blows the air for the inside vents. You stated that the blower was not working at all. A low refrigerant charge would have NOT caused the blower to stop working, it will ONLY turn off the Compressor and radiator fan (in engine compartment), Not the blower motor... You may find that this happens again after a short time... keep me posted and let me know if this happens to occur again...
