Possible Causes for AC problem in 2008 Chrysler Aspen

Asked by Oct 27, 2015 at 12:35 AM about the 2008 Chrysler Aspen Limited

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The AC in a 2008 Chrysler Aspen has stopped working. The fan cannot be
heard at any fan speed setting. At idle or low speed city driving the AC cannot
be felt. At faster highway speeds the AC can be felt regardless of the fan
speed setting. My current plan is just to replace the compressor. Past
experience with AC problems with any car I've owned were always solved by
replacing that part. However, I thought I might give it a shot & ask before doing
so.

So you can feel cold air from the unit at highway speeds, so the A/C compressor must be operating correctly, it sounds more like there is a problem with the blower motor itself not the A/C. Have you tried jumping the motor directly to see if it runs? Most common is a failed resistor block, see pic.
