Hi KJones5,

Did you purchase the vehicle from a Dodge dealership? If so, have you contacted them to address this for you?

No I did not buy it from a Dodge Dealership, I figured I would see if anyone on here had any similar issues before I go spend a day at the stearship (dealership)

I am far from an expert, but it does sound like it could be one of the actuators. You have dual zone climate control I guess? I don't have that, so my car has three actuators, and I just replaced all three (on my 2010). I have a 2014 Charger Pursuit, but I haven't had any troubles with that one.

I was advised of a reset for my 2010. I don't know if it's the same for a '14, but I was told for my '10 to turn ACC power on (don't start), with fan switched to off, and then hold down defrost button for five seconds.

I have also been told the stealership can do a more complex reset if this doesn't work.

Do you hear any clicking sounds coming from dash when you turn on a/c or make adjustments? That's the symptom of a broken door.

Which defrost button? Front or rear? Or do you mean the AC button?

No, not a/c. I linked kind of long thread at the bottom that deals with this topic. Of course your car is a '14 and might be difference in some of the info.

Here is what was written as far as calibrating: The Actuator Calibration function will either run automatically or it can be actuated manually


The automatic calibration occurs in two ways:
1. 10 minutes after turning the ignition off after a specified number of ignition cycles
2. Turning the ignition on after reconnecting the battery
Once actuated, the calibration function will run to completion even if the ignition is turned off. The entire process takes approximately 90 seconds. Upon completion, all air-door actuators should return to the position that the system is currently requesting.


To run the Actuator Calibration manually, you're in luck if you have the MTC (manual temp control) versus the ATC (automatic temp control). With the ATC you need the dealership to perform the Actuator Calibration using their diagnostic system. With the MTC you can perform the procedure yourself:
1. Turn the ignition to the On/Run position (but don't start the car)
2. Turn the blower motor control to the Off position.
3. Press the rear-defroster button down for five seconds and release it.

KJ5:
My '14 acted the same way when I brought it home last October. There was a computer update for the HVAC that fixed it. See below to check if your Charger needs an update like mine did.

Log on to the Dodge webpage and see if there are any UCONNECT firmware updates for you to install!

This might correct the issues:

Mine was doing this last year. Mine was still under bumper to bumper and they did an hvac update seems to fixed mine.

Another member on here had the update done and they charged him. Not sure if he got it reversed or not but was working with dodge cares about it.

I do have a diablosport performance tune installed, should I remove it before I take it to the dealer to get updated?

Yes.
Install the stock OE tune prior to taking the car in for service ... especially if you're expecting them to perform any software updates.

Freon leak at compressor. I had to replace the e tire AC system ($1,200) and the expensive new freon. You need a special machine that is VERY hard to find other than at the dealership. I found ONE shop in the entire city that had this machine and could service the AC. I know this thread is old, so what was your end solution?
