problem #4

Oct 062008

Stratus Sedan 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 103,000 miles


This was the second time the fan speed control failed. I bought a used control module to replace the old one but it was also defective. So to hell with it. I've heard it's a defective resistor but which one?

Stratus Sedan 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 94,786 miles

Fan speed control failed to work on anything except high. After a couple of months I took it to an A/C place and they replaced the module and charged me 80.00 dollars. Less than one year later the piece of sh*t fails again, same thing only works on high other than that no problems with the car.

The heater/AC fan would run only on high speed because of a bad resistor. They knew this and had an update to use a better resistor as they had lots of problems with the original, but still made me pay for it! Me, and how many others???!!!!
