    My blower moter only worked on high and now it don't work at all. Is it the resister or the relay?

    So we replaced the resistor and then, blower motor before reading this. When the blower motor was replaced, the new resistor fried. We looked at the connector to the resistor and it was melted. If we replaced the resistor with the new blower motor in place, do we also need to replace the melted connector? If so, please assist on how this is done. Thank you!

The blower motor resistors are known for going bad. Usually its because the blower starts drawing too much current. What I would recommend doing if you can and have the tools, is to check the blower motor connector to make sure 12 volts is present. If so than I would recommend replacing the blower motor resistor. Then if the same issue ever happens again and the blower motor resistor is bad again, you will need to replace the blower motor and the blower resistor as the final repair.
Here is some info about testing the resistor using a multimeter it you have one:

DIAGNOSIS AND TESTING- BLOWER MOTOR RESISTOR WARNING: ON VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AIRBAGS, DISABLE THE AIRBAG SYSTEM BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY STEERING WHEEL, STEERING COLUMN, OR INSTRUMENT PANEL COMPONENT DIAGNOSIS OR SERVICE. DISCONNECT AND ISOLATE THE BATTERY NEGATIVE (GROUND) CABLE, THEN WAIT TWO MINUTES FOR THE AIRBAG SYSTEM CAPACITOR TO DISCHARGE BEFORE PERFORMING FURTHER DIAGNOSIS OR SERVICE. FAILURE TO TAKE THE PROPER PRECAUTIONS COULD RESULT IN ACCIDENTAL AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT AND POSSIBLE PERSONAL INJURY.
Both the front blower motor resistor and the optional rear heater-A/C unit blower motor resistor can be diagnosed using the procedure that follows. For circuit descriptions and diagrams, refer to Air Conditioning/Heater in Group 8W - Wiring Diagrams.

  1. Disconnect and isolate the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect the wire harness connector from the blower motor resistor block.
  3. Check for continuity between each of the blower motor switch input terminals of the resistor and the resistor output terminal. In each case there should be continuity. If OK, repair the wire harness circuits between the blower motor switch and the blower motor resistor block or blower motor as required. If not OK, replace the faulty blower motor resistor block.
Here is the information on replacing the resistor:

REMOVAL
  1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
  2. From the passenger foot well area, remove the two hex screws used to secure the blower motor resistor.
  3. Unplug the front blower motor resistor from the wire harness connector.
  4. Remove the front blower motor resistor from the HVAC unit.
Here is an exploded view of the HVAC box. The resistor is #63 in the picture and the actual part may appear slightly different:

If any issues such as no voltage at blower connector or damaged or melted connector at the resistor then let me know.

Front vents in 1997 ford expedition are working but non of the rear vents are working. What could this be??


the rear fan/ blower motor may have died before you got the vehicle. if it worked for you at one time, the blower usually makes noise before biting the dust, so you can check fuses and relays, as well.

99 Dodge durango heater not working


The blowers ion the back have there own blower motor. The front has it's own. The resister controls the range the blower motor runs on,( low, medium, high). If the blower motor is not working it may be the motor itself. Was the fuse checked:?

The AC stopped blowing through my front vents but blows through the rear AC. The compressor is working fine but it seems like the front vent system is not ducting the AC through.


replace the blower motor resistor located on the passenger side were your toes point there are two 9mm screws you will need a universal joint socket to remove the back screw drop down the resistor and remove the red saftey clip and press together the two black pieces together and pull apart. If the problems happens again you will have to replace the resistor again and also replace the blower motor because the blower moter is woren and drawing to many amps. The blower has three 9mm screw and one wire harness. I purchased all my parts thru Rockauto .com

Heating / air conditioning control stuck to front defrost vents


There is a vacuum leak under the hood. Find the vacuum line on the passenger side where it comes through the firewall and follow it to the engine. You system needs vacuum to operate and without it the default setting is on defrost for safety reasons.
