I have a 2006 Dodge Ram2500 4x4 Megacab A/T 5.9 Diesel. When the outside temperature is < 80 d/f the A/C operates fine however when the outside tem. > 85 d/f the A/C is poor and blows warm/hot air at idle. The dealer states that everything checked fine and this is normal as the condenser is located near the cold air induction. I have spoken to owners of other diesels (Ford, Chevy, etc) and they don't have this problem. Has anyone encountered this? Is this normal? If not any suggestions please.
I'm also having this problem. Blows warm air at idle and gets cold and works fine as soon as I start driving. I can hear the compressor kick in at idle but doesn't stay engaged. It would be nice to have it cold at all times but no biggie.
This has been a known problem. I have the same thing, And no solution yet I believe, it has even mentioned on vehicle reports that financial groups use on vehicles. but it is only on the 06 models. dont know whats different for that yr but?

My truck does the same thing, I looked at the compressor and it was shutting on and off, so I'm going to add freon, I took a quick look and didn't see the inlet, soon I'm going to get a can of freon and get in there and really look.

mine will freeze me out idling, even for 15 minutes or more. I had a bad blend door too that eventually took out my blower. Just had it all replaced and it's good as new again. I have a regular cab but it still blows cold out of the vent. If it's below 90^ sometimes I have to blend some warm in so I don't freeze. I'd take it to another dealer.

same problem here! the other thing is that the blower sounds like it is really doing something but not much air coming out compared to other vehicles ive been in
I was just about to say that! I was in the truck for 12hrs yesterday on a road trip and the person traveling with me cranked up the air after the truck sat in the sun for a while and asked what was wrong with it? He said that the sound the blower (obviously very high RPMs) was making it should be pushing out a fairly high volume of air, even if we closed half of the vents when you hold your hand infront of the open vent its barely a breeze!
