Dodge Ram vents only work on floor

11 posts in this topic

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.

    •   You need to stop eating those funny mushrooms before wondering around in the woods like that. You could get lost! Lol
    • No, not morels (at least not here), but I saw two different species of mushrooms on a little walk through a local woods: the "orange peel fungus" (aleuria aurantia) and one little brown mushroom that I couldn't identify.  The season isn't that far away!!

    • Weather around the state has and will continue its fickle behavior as we close out an exceptionally warm week and move toward a significantly cooler weekend. Rain and snow are predicted across the state, with temperatures expected to fall rapidly Friday into Saturday, leading many to wonder if any of this precipitation will stick around long enough to revitalize the snowmobile and ski trails. Currently snowmobile trails remain open in a few northern counties, but conditions are very poor with bear spots and some standing water according to the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Ski trails have similar conditions where they remain open.Eagles are congregating along the Mississippi River just in time for Bald Eagle Appreciation Days at Prairie du Chien this weekend.Photo Credit: Donna HigginsThe warm front has also strongly effected ice-cover on state water bodies and anglers are also eagerly waiting to see what the weekend's cold front will provide. The ice on southern lakes is deteriorating fast and is unsafe to fish. Even in the Northwoods some waters are breaking up and where the ice is still thick there is plenty of water on it, and areas of open water have started to show up along shorelines and in marshes and especially around beaver lodges. As a result, many anglers have taken advantage of warm temperatures for open water fishing. This past weekend 100 plus boats were fishing the Fox River from the 172 Bridge to the dam at Voyageur Park. Anglers in boats have been having mixed results catching coho salmon and brown and rainbow trout in the Milwaukee Harbor and in Oak Creek. Anglers were open water fishing the Rock River for walleye and sauger, where the bite was on at the Indianford Dam. Sauger and walleye were biting on Lake Wisconsin. Warm temperatures and rain will have the Wisconsin River back above flood stage this weekend. .
    •   My two cents... if you use vinyl you will never have to replace it again. When is the water ever going to hit it and STAY moist? That is what carpet does, vinyl will allow the water to roll right off.
