I have seen posts in numerous places, regarding the 20 or so seconds of Heat that come from the vents after turning on the A/C.

- I know that someone posted helpful info on this before - But it seems that to date, some folks are still not aware that there is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) for the A/C control module. Also, someone on this forum once noted that some of the Chargers are coming off the assy. line with a low A/C charge.

Last week, I had the TSB (A/C module) issue fixed - the dealer replaced the in dash control module (the module with the Heat and A/C knobs). Also, The dealer checked the A/C charge and noted that it was low - they then charged it to Spec (they noted that they've seen the low charge issue on the Magnum's, 300's and the Chargers).

Anyhow, after the 2 fixes noted above - I notice that I do not get the 20 seconds of hot air (it's now more like a 1 second delay). I also notice that the A/C air temperature is much cooler (even when not on Re-circ). I also noticed that the volume of air and speed, coming from the vents, has increased. - Now, I think the A/C is great.

- Has anyone else had both or either of the 2 fixes performed - if so, what have you noticed.

- For those that have not had the "Fixes" performed, I would recommend getting it done.

I think I will take your advice and go get it checked out. Summers almost gone and if I put it off I will forget and next year might be a little harder to get dealer to fix it.

How can you find out about the tech service memos you mentioned. Are we supposed to get them in the mail?

I had seen a note about the Tech Service Bulletin, in another thread. I'm not sure where to get them. I just went to the dealer and told the Service Manager - he knew about the A/C module bulletin. As far as the "Low" A/C charge (coming off of the assembly line), I saw that posted in another thread - I don't think there was a Bulletin about that one.

Next time I am at the Dealer, I will ask the service Manager if there is a way for the car owners to view the (TSB) Technical Service Bulletins.

TSB's are generally not availible for the customer to "pick through".... best bet is to contact fnkychicken over on lxforums.com.... he is a dodge service tech and can whip off TSB #'s and info like crazy... :D

Thanks

If someone could find and post the TSB's in question that would be great, my rental car is a Charger and the lack of AC and the hot air blast is killing me.
I'll make Enterprise fix one then give me it once it's done.

- I am curious - you noted you had a rental Charger - Do you have plans to buy one ?
- I've read that the Rental Chargers have the 2.7L 190hp engine - and no engine size "badging". Does your Rental have the 2.7L ? - Is it a "dog" when it comes to acceleration ?
- I was just curious - I bought the Charger "SE" (3.5L 250hp) which is "fast enough" for me at this point - I wonder what the 2.7L feels like.

The rental has the base engine and it SUCKS. It's the slowest thing I've driven in quite a while. I have plans to buy either a Charger SRT8 or a Magnum SRT8 - depends on wife's final decision. :)
My Excursion got T-boned last week - $15K in damage so I thought I'd try out a Charger for fit but no SXT to rent, trading Charger for Magnum this week to see if I like the Magnum better.
