First trip to dealer for warrenty work at 32,000, any sugestions?

Well the day has finally come that I need to get it in to deal with a few issues, some old that I have been tolerating and some new that have to be addressed. So far the problems I have had which have been fairly minor for me I have chosen to deal with on my own and on my own dime

I have avoided the dealer like the plague do to previous experience with other cars but I just cant do it any more as I'm at 32000 and only have a little bit left on my Bumper to bumper.My jeep has yet to be in to dealer service since I bought it. I have found a tech who is viper certified and is a connection threw a good buddy of mine, he also does side work so if I like him I can use him for other things too in the future.

So here is my list of things to address

A/C not cooling as it should and passange side not cold at all (mabe blend doors)
Alt in not putting out as it should and just got a battery light last week
Key fob recall (Only had one key fob fore like two years now )
Window up then down issue in auto up

If you know of any service bulletins or other wise that is related to what I said or I should bring up please chime in. I know they have one for the window and the key fob but with three kids a company to run and an endless amount of THINGS to deal with I have not found the time or had the energy to look it up it up

Thanks guys for the input

Hey Guys,

Quick question here.. I have an 05 Laredo .. with the manual A/C controls.. I'm having a similiar problem. Only my drivers side is coming out cold... everywhere else is just warm air... Would I have a a similiar Blendor door problem?

Also, I checked the heat... all footwells and air ducts come out hot just fine.. it seems to be only a problem with cold air.. Drivers side is cold so i don't think it needs R134a... but everywhere else is just warm.. im puzzled...

Re: First trip to dealer for warrenty work at 32,000, any sugestions?

It's a 2005 3.7, but i think it's fixed now... i got restless and ran to wallmart to grab a can of R134a and the guadge that came with it.. The presure was low (below 25 PSI...). I topped it off arounde 35-40 PSI and its an ice box again... Thanks anyways..
