Dodge Ram vents only work on floor

Recommended Posts

Just started doing this this spring. No matter where its set, only comes out on floor? Easy fix for a tool challanged person like myself?

Many of these are controlled by vacuum. If it is I would bet that there is a broken vacuum supply to the control head. Find the leak and you solved the problem (again if it is controlled by vacuum).

Yep, common problem. On the engine side of the firewall there is the control manifold for the actuator. Usually a hose just pops off.

These guys have you on the right track of checking for vacuum leaks in the hose going to the temp control head. I would check that first, then check for a bad vacuum motor for the mode door, then check to see if you can manually move the door, there maybe an obstruction, like a pen stuck in the door.

Anyone know what this looks like or about where it is?

The vacuum source originates on the passenger side of the intake manifold. You'll see a vacuum line about half way back. Follow that to the fire wall and make sure it is not leaking anywhere. I don't recall specifically where it comes through the fire wall but you'll be able to figure it out when you find it. If everything looks good in the engine compartment then you'll have to find it in the cabin under the dash or pull the controll head to see if there is vacuum at the connector.

  • Your Responses - Share & Have Fun :)

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
