Feel the hoses going to the heater core. Are both hot? If so then you have a blend door actuator motor issue. Is one hot and the other one cold or Luke warm? If so then you have a stopped up heater core. Is neither one hot or only Luke warm? Then it's a cooling system issue. Possible bad thermostat, low coolant or failing water pump. Hope this helps

Is there an objective way to measure the temperature of the heating system in the cabin . My old 2001 Caravan made more "intense " heat than my 2012 Town and country. The T&C has the type of heat control where you set a number value al the way up to high for both driver and passenger.

If your low on or leaking radiator fluid check for a drip by the intake outtake lines at the firewall. There is a heater control valve that is notorious for falling apart. It only cost $12 and takes 5 minutes to replace. I noticed the tell tale drip during inspection and as I was removing the lines the heater control valve broke in half as I was removing.

Other than Chrysler thinking that Central Heat/Air control Panel was a great idea, it's not. Car's need to warm up, before the heat will work correctly. And anyone that think's it's a great idea to jump in your New Car 2000 to Present, start it and go.. Yeah your the people that Mechanic's LOVE to see. Cause most of you barely, can take care of yourself, than a Car, the 2nd most expense in your lives. A house being Number 1. And not knowing the basic's of how they work.. Then your nice car will be in the Junk Yard allot quicker than any Pre-2000 Car.
