Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

AC Evaporator

Just a word to the wise, my evaporator went bad for a bill or $750. My AC guy says he makes a living off Chrysler and says that when the system is charged at the factory, they do not properly evacuate the system before installing the refrigerant. His suggestion is to take your car to an AC shop the minute you buy it and have it properly evacuated so it will not corrode (moisture present) the evaporator. Exact thing happened to my 300M

    Hmmm, interesting, our two Dodge Grand Caravans have a combined quarter of a million miles and both are still running the factory charge of refrigerant. Go figure.

    If a person needed to replace the evaporator that is located under the dash on a 93 jeep GC is that something a person good with tools can do or does it require some sort of special tools and special knowledge?

    My AC was having issues freezing up and fading out on long drives. There is actually a TSB for this issue and involves flashing the PCM module. Dealer did that and mine is working (cross fingers) again like it should....cold enough to hang meat in the car!

    TSB Number: 2400504
