I have an 07 Caliber with 247,000 miles. It has been a great car from day one. I have only had to do basically maintenance repairs on it like brakes, plugs, oil, tires, control bushings, control arms and so on. The only two, well three issues I have with it is the drivers door will not lock/unlock with the power locks. The hazard lights don’t work. And of course the ac.
But last year the ac started blowing only hot air. I put it off until this spring and I took it to get recharged. My mechanic hooked it up and recharged it but it still was blowing hot air. He said that the compressor was bad. So I picked up a used one for $25 off ebay with a 1 year warranty. Got it installed and took it back to my mechanic. Nothing, would not engage. I got a bad one. No big deal. I got my money back and this time I bought a remanufactured one with a 3 year warranty. Got it installed and took it back to my mechanic. Everything looked good but again it would blow hot air. He tested the system by turning the fan on with his scan tool, and it would work fine. But there is no way to keep it on without the scan tool connected. All of the fuses are ok. But with the TIPM, I cannot find a relay for the ac. Am I going to have to take it to a Dodge dealer to get it fixed?
