Found the AC problem...
« on: December 26, 2007, 09:09:07 »

Dont know if any of you remember but i had an a/c problem and the ATC only put out heat on anything..taking out the radio yesterday (got it working)  we decided to go up and look behind the ATC.. The set of vaccum hoses that plug into the back of the push/pull switches were plugged in but the ones that are plugged into that harness.. are broken ...

Where does that 2nd harnes plug into? Is it  harness you can buy or do you have to re- do the entire vac. system...

That appears to be the vac hoses for the 'vent switchers' as in if you hit DEF, it goes to the windshield and some to floor, or 'VENT' it goes primarily to the front vents...

It has nothing to do with the ATC temp settings. i don't even have those vac lines hooked up since i'm still sorting the mess from the previous system in mine, and since it's winter and default is DEF i dont' mess with it until spring.

Don't think so, Call the local chrysler dealer, if they don't have it, at the very least you'll get to hear them laugh at you.  :roll:

They can be spliced back together using new vacuum lines or you can find one in the junkyard.

I have asked several good mopar parts guys if they can find it and I have had no luck. All chrysler dealerscan do a locater and I will call again tomorrow. I just got impatient and replaced them one at a time.  You can also search for the same vacuum harn. in full size dodge vans all the way up to 99( I think)

the plug that comes in the back of the box is broken too so  i'd have to have the whole thing.. or  the plug parts because the ends are really the problem.. just some that'll match up and i can put the lines in i guess

so just the vacuum line extension end connectors are broken, correct?  (Thats usually the case)  The connector on the control its self is fine, right?

I'll take a look and see what I have.

I have an extension from my newport which looks to be the same.  It's in good shape and the lines are still pretty flexible.  I also have one end of the vacuum harness with the rubber connector that the vacuum lines are cut on that could be spliced into the one that goes to the car its self.  E-mail me if you're interested in them.
