I have a 2006 Laramie Mega 5.9L and the evaporator core temp sensor failed a few months ago. It was confirmed by a friend with an A/C machine showing my compressor cycling like crazy and lines freezing up. Since he owns a shop, he called a Mopar dealer that he regularly uses and tried to order one only to find out it was back ordered. Since I live in Texas and A/C gets used all the time, I had him check up on the part Thursday and he found out Mopar discontinued it and now I’m S.O.L. I’ve searched everywhere I can think of, including here, and still can’t find a solution so I’m really hoping y’all can point me in the right direction.

They list a few phone numbers under the contact us tab. You might score one at a wrecking yard.

If anyone is interested and still looking, that part does not exist anywhere I could find.

Just like the 371 websites I looked at and emailed/called, they’ll leave it up to perpetrate the suffering of others for the sake of laziness.

At least they don't send you the wrong part 5 times, insist it is correct, basically call you stupid because you cannot understand how to make the wrong part work, then get huffy when you cram the fact they screwed up down their throat AFTER 15 CALLS!!!

I know that feeling all too well.... the first couple places I tried were dealers and they all looked it up based on my VIN and told me I was looking for the wrong part. I politely explained to them that I was looking at the part in my hand and it matched the part number I had given them and they still didn't believe me.

I have the exact problem! Please Please Please share your work around for the evaporator temperature sensor on the 3rd Gen! The part has been discontinued as of march 2019, I'm told. I will gladly pay you for the assembly and instructions! Thank you, in advance. P.S. I sent you an email this evening.
