Yeah, I'm having a freon leak issue and that might be my problem. Think I may have found it with some dye, but I'm out of town till the 23rd, so I won't know until I get back.

I will check it. Where is there a fast place to go besides the dealer? And the only reason why I don't think it's that is because the driver and passenger side air is SO different. My driver side is pretty damn cold, passenger side, not at all. But I will do it, especially if it saves me from tearing into my dash.

Thats what mine was doing, nice and cold on the driver side and felt like just the fan was on for the passengers. Remember that everything is controlled by something. It probably programed to shift the cold air to the drive if its not performing well.

If you ever get a bad alternator and drive it till the battery goes dead its really interesting how the car will automatically eliminate unnecessary functions until it will eventually just die. It will do everything to keep the car on the road until it just cant run because it doesn't have enough electrical power.

I would highly recommend you find a good reputable mechanic, preferably one that is familiar with high performance vehicles. AVOID THE DEALER LIKE THE PLAGUE! I do most all the work on my Jeep but there are just somethings that are beyond what I'm equipt to do. I don't have a car lift or an engine hoist or the space. So I do what I can and let him take care of the rest. My mechanic has even lent me tools sometime when I needed them. He is well know and highly respected and very fair in fact some times I think he doesn't charge enough lol. The last thing you want is to be in a pinch and under pressure have to decide where to take it. Better to have that figured out before.

Interesting. Well, I will go do that today if I can find someone who knows what the hell they are doing. Maybe I will go to the dealer this once. I am leaving for the desert tomorrow and was planning on not taking my Jeep because of the A/C, but if this would help, I want to take it!

You can charge your A/C with a few tools from autozone. Just buy the kit with the hose attached

Subscribing because I have the same problem. The driver side is cold but the pass and rear air are much warmer. I was quoted around $1200 by the dealership to replace the blend air doors/actuators. I took it in for a second quote at my local auto AC/Heat shop and they said anywhere from $200-600 depending on if the dash needed to come out. I have read that there is another way of replacing these blend air doors/actuators but it requires cutting into things and I don't like that idea. The only reason why I haven't had the AC shop to do the work is because I hate the idea of my dang dash being pulled out! My Jeep is SOLID with no rattles or squeaks and I want it to stay that way, but I will need to have it done soon because it is already getting into the high 90's here in North East TX and a good AC is a must.

Great write up Tamara. I had this done under warranty by my dealer. It was interesting to see the pics as to what they did. They did mention that it took some work to get the thing back in properly. Now I know what to do if it fails again.
