Constant Hot Air Blowing

Since I have had my SRT (10 000km) now, when I have the fan on in the car to bring in air from the outside, it blows hot air.

The temp setting on the climate control is set to low, however I still get hot air.

If I use the recirculate button, the air almost feels as if the AC is on that's how cold it gets.

I don't like AC and would prefer air from the outside ( can't always drive with window open)

Anyone else have this issue and how did you solve it, my service guys are clueless!

Thanks

Re: Constant Hot Air Blowing

I am having this same issue as well as 12 other warranty issues. I'm taking the SRT in sometime this week to have a second go at getting some of the problems fixed. I'll let you know how I go with the hot air if you haven't already resolved it. Love this car but can't help but wish I got the C63.

Constant Hot Air Blowing

Hey mate,
Got the jeep back last week and was pretty much told that the hot air blowing is because of heat generated by the motor heating up the air as it enters the car and they didn't seem to address the issue that the air was ice cold if I hit the recirculate button. Sounded like a piss weak excuse to me as that is all they seem to have for a lot of my warranty issues. I am in the process of getting people higher up the chrysler chain involved as the jeep was also supposed to have the transmission update to fix the rough shifts as they advised me to do the first time I took it in for this issue. When I picked it up they said they did nothing to the transmission because there was nothing they can do to fix it even though I have paper work from them from the first time I took it to them asking me to leave it with them for two days so they could apply the update and perform the relearning process. When I showed them their original paper work stating this they just kind of starred at me like I was a time traveler from a parallel universe. I hope you are getting better service than I.

Re: Constant Hot Air Blowing

Well nothing as yet, mine is booked in for a first service next month.

They say they are going to remove the entire dash and climate/infotainment unit and see if that is faulty.

They will replace it with another from another vehicle and test.

I will certainly let you know what the results are, it all sounds bs to me!

Re: Constant Hot Air Blowing

Thanks bro. The head michanic at this dealership is very arrogant and hard to communicate with which makes it even more difficult.
Good luck. I'm sure your guys are much better. The fact they are willing to pull you SRT apart to that degree speaks volumes for their service.

Re: Constant Hot Air Blowing

All our service guys are useless to be honest. They are plug and diagnose specialists that's all!

The services manager where I bought my SRT is a female, so there is no arrogance with her like I have found with most of the male managers at other dealers.

She thinks out the box and tries to resolve every issue methodically and not necessarily by the book if you know what I mean.

I have to say I am a little concerned about what they are planning to do.

Generally I think more issues can come of it like damage to the dash and rattles and squeaks!

I'll let you know bud!

Re: Constant Hot Air Blowing

Update: my truck is currently at the workshop, they have apparently got a GC there that they are running comparative tests with in terms of how much engine heat they both emit at idle running!

How can you compare an SRT with a regular GC.....?

If they cannot find a problem.... Then there is nothing they can do I am told!

I CALL BS on that!

Re: Constant Hot Air Blowing

Seems like it is lot of work to remove the system and sort the problem, that is what they don't want to warranty it! That or they don't know how to remove it!

I am not quitting and will get it repaired or get a new car!

Re: Constant Hot Air Blowing

My service dept found that the heater/AC air door actuators/gears were broken, even though they did not throw a trouble code, they replaced them,
