This is a common problem in most car's heater and air conditioner systems. I checked it and sure enough it's only luke warm while the driver's side is blowing real hot air. Recirc door not working with actuator and can be moved by hand all over the place freely.
To tell me what the problem was when in fact they probably already knew just by starting the car. Cleared saved codes and reran test. I find it hard to believe two actuators are bad right out of the box. I plan to call my dealership and inquire if it will be covered under warranty, but who the hell knows. I have not yet repaired it. Step 7: Reinstall the Cover or Glove Box After the installation is complete double check your work and reinstall the plastic cover.
Dodge needs to take care of this. Poorest quality of a car I've seen. Nov 10, 2016 check to see if the blend door is moving where you change the temperature setting.
