Question about 2000 Dodge Caravan

Fan motor on 2000 Caravan works only on high.

Will you please e-mail me at with the location of the resistor and how to identify said resistor. I'm not exactly sure where to find the answer to my question if I return to this site. It would be easier just to go to my e-mail. Thanks in advance for any help.

    My heater fan only works on high, AC won't turn on.

    Fan operates only on high

  • ksk08840 May 20, 2009

    We have the same problem, where our AC/Heat Fan control was only working on High. Then it finally stopped working altogether, so bought a replacement (used) Heater Control unit (via eBay) and installed it yesterday.

    It once again works only on High, so I am going to try and replace the resistor everyone is talking about, hoping it will work on the other settings as well.

    Thanks for your help.

For the problem of the blower motor only working on high, I just replaced my blower motor resistor. It is located under the hood on the firewall on the passenger side. There is a rectangular plug that connects to it. Remove the plug (tight space). The resistor can be pryed out. It is just held in with retaining clips. Insert the new part (about $15) and reconnect the plug.

Took about 20 minutes. Blower now works on all speeds as normal.

Good Luck!

Where is the heater resistor on a 2005 dodge dakota? Behind glove box?

should be just above the blower motor. You will need to remove the glove box door to gain access.

2000 dodge caravan fan switch does not work in all position, should I replace the switch? or is there a way to repair .t

There is a resistor for the fan motor that controls the speed of the fan . It is located near the motor and has 4 wires on the plug for it. Most likely it is open.

Heater relay location

Likely the fan blower electrical plug has poor contact or the blower motor or resistor needs replaced (which is what the plug pushes onto).
Under right side (passenger side) of dash, the blower motor casing is in the corner, look for a plug with several wires and just try wiggling it a little or pull off then put back on and see if fan now works on other speeds. If still will not then most likely the resistor needs replaced which can be done by removing the two screws
seen on housing and just pull out. If resistor is bad then the fan will only work on high.

Where is the fan in a 2000 dodge caravan

I am assuming you are asking about the Blower Fan and not the Radiator Fan?
The Blower Fan is located below the Passenger side Dash. It is inside the black Duct work.
May I ask what the problem is?
Is the Blower working or only working on High? If only on High then the Blower Motor is fine and the Blower Motor Resistor that controls the Low to High speeds is bad. This is located behind the Glove Box in the Dash and on the firewall. Remove the Glove Box to access. It is approximately 3 1/2 inches by 1 1/2 inches and has 3 to 4 wires going into it.
There is also a Front Blower Motor Relay located in the Relays and Fuses.
Before replacing the Blower Motor, get back with me (for free) and let me know. This may save you alot of money in the long run, saving you from purchasing parts you may not need!
Let me know if this helped, and let me know what the problems (symptoms/signs) are.
Contact me in the Comment Section of your Posted problem.

Heater works only on high

This is 100% the Blower Motor Resistor located adjacent to the Blower Motor. Take your Dash Glove Box out to access. It is mounted on/into the fire wall. It should be approximately 3 1/2 inches by 1 1/2 inches. Mounted with two (2) 8mm metal screws/bolts. Unplug the electrical connections, unbolt and remove.
I have repaired several dozen including my own.
Purchase the Resistor at an auto parts store versus a dealer to save you alot of money.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at!

Heater blower for front heater doesn't work, back one does

First: check the Front Blower Motor Relay located in the IPM. Its' location should be on the back side of the cover. There should be an available Spare Relay. Replace and Check operation.
If this does not solve it.
Try the Fan Speed on "high". If the Motor comes on only "high" and no other speed, then it is definitely the Blower (Fan) Motor Resistor and must be replaced. It is located behind the dash Glove Box. Remove the Glove Box. The resistor is located on the back fire wall, and has 3 to 4 wires going into it. It is approximately 3 1/2 inches wide by 1 1/2 inches high. Disconnect the electrical connection. There should be two bolts (I believe 8mm) holding the resistor in place. Remove the bolts and Remove and Replace. Check the operation.
If this does not solve it:
Pull the connection to the Blower Motor and check for Voltage with the Fan On "low". If correct voltage: the Blower Motor itself needs to be replaced.
Let me know if this helped; or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at!

Heater blower works on high but not on any lower setting

There is a resistor that is used for the lower fan speeds; these resistors burn out, and have to be replaced. Go to and register (its free) you will then be able to access the repair guide and locate the resistor

I've been working on tearing the interior dash assembley for 2 hours on my 2000 Caravan SE as the fan doesn't work! I purchased the resistor and can't find it. Where is it??

the resistor is in the fan itself I don't know if you are talking about the fan for the blower motor in the car or the engine fan itself both of them have resistors I would suggest you stop by Auto Zone and get the location and the diagram for the fan you are replacing
