Dodge Journey heat control


Asked by Oct 26, 2014 at 01:37 PM about the 2012 Dodge Journey R/T AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We were driving, on highway, for approx 1 hour, we had the heat on and all of a sudden we started to feel cold on our feet.  Sometimes there is heat coming out of the vents on the passengers side and cool on the drivers side when the heat is at the same temp. for both sides.

We took our Journey back to the dealership and they installed "centre stack" now we have lots of heat all the time.

We have a heating problem with a 2015 Dodge Journey. There is no heat control. Even at 61 degrees, it blows warm air. The only way to get cool air is on lowest setting. The dealer claims that Chrystler does not have a fix for this. They even claim that another Journey tested has the same problem so the situation is "normal" .


I am having the exact same problem...heat works for a bit at all temperatures up to max for about 30 mins, then cold air. It always works on max but who wants to melt in their car. I am wondering where the temperature gauge is and if its tricked into thinking it has exceeded the selected temperature. This might explain why the max setting works but not others.

Puppies101, did they replace your centre stack? I looked up that part and it just looks like the centre console for your heating controls.

So stupid question but I have a 2009 Dodge Journey , A/c is working but it isn't cooling the car down. Its blowing and its cold, but car stays hot. If I want it the coldest , should I set the dial at lo or 61? Which is coldest?
