problem #2

Oct 122018

1500 Outdoorsman 5.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 97,000 miles


Last week my defrost / heater quit working on my truck. It quit working completely in defrost mode and works on only 1/2 of the truck on the heater mode. Have not had it in yet but have been told it is a many hour fix. Not safe to drive like it is as defrost went out half way home on the highway.

problem #1

1500 Sport 5.7L

Front defroster works when vehicle is first started. But once you change the selector to the floor or vent and the windshield fogs up again, and you turn the selector back to defrost, nothing blows on the windshield. I've already had this problem serviced at the dealership. At first the service guy said they had their Heating and AC tech check it out and he couldn't find any issues with it. He even said to me, that maybe I didn't know how to turn the defroster on. I told him to turn on the defroster and tell me if there was any air blowing on the windshield. Needless to say it was then fixed. It was covered under the warranty and worked fine for a few weeks but then the problem has started again. I can't wait to hear what the their tech guy is gonna have to say this time.
