2001 T&C LXi - front blower fan is working intermittently

I've got a 2001 T&C LXi and the front blower fan is working intermittently. I've replaced the relay (in the box under the hood) but it is still intermittent. I haven't replaced the resistor or fuse but easily could, the intermittent working (at all speeds) though is what confuses me. The van's got about 218,000 on it. Could the main blower switch or electronic thermostat be causing the intermittent operation?

Hello! to answer your question; No...The intermittent operation is more than likely being caused by loose or oxidized contacts in the motor connector plug...Blower motor switch connector or the blower motor resistor plug...go to Radio Shack and purchase a product called DeOxit...cost $15...It's a two spray can package...A cleaner and contact protector spray...Cans are small you do not need much...Spray all three plugs; both male and female pins...You will notice a bubbling action...No wiping off...This is a no touch spray...This should clear up the problem...On the blower switch plug is a Black/Orange wire which goes to ground...Using an ohmmeter check this wire for zero ohms to ground...On the X10 scale...If you do not read zero ohms...The connection of this wire needs to go to bare metal chassis ground...

    Thanks for the info on contacts - that's probably it and I'll clean them. I know where the resistor plug is but not the blower motor switch connector or motor connector plug. Can you help me with locating these? Thanks

    Hello! the Blower Motor is under the dash near the passengers foot well,,,That's where the Blower motor plug is located...The Blower Motor Switch is in the dash and will pry out with a thin blade screwdriver...Tape the end of the screw driver to protect the dash...Once out you will see the plug...Saailer

I just replaced the actuator on my 2000 Chrysler Concorde LXI and my heater still isn't working. Any other idea's?

If its not blowing air then you may want to try a new blower motor if it is blowing air then you probably need a new thermostat

2003 GMC Yukon XL blower fan intermittently doesnt turn on

Could be the blower motor, the resistor, or the control on the dash.
You'll need to check the circuit for voltage when it fails to work.

2001 Chry. T&C LXI 3.8V6 w/ Auto system. 05/2010 front fan stopped blowing, replaced Front Blower Motor Resistor (behind glove bx) and back to normal on all settings. Yesterday, front blower stopped...

Very common for switch to fail and take resistor with it. Recommend testing switch with ohmmeter to make sure it makes only one connection per setting. Let me know if you have questions.

2001 Town & Country lxi. Front blower worked last night but not this morning. Fuses and relays all OK (swapped known working etc) How to check beyond this? Power at blower motor? Where is blower motor?...

Ummm if the blower motor is bad it's a ***** to replace, I'd spring for a dealership repair to replace the motor
try this (But I doubt it) look under the hood on the firewall near the far right side, if you see the back of the blower motor, whack it with a hammer, this may work and it's tmporary at best, if you're very lucky the blower can be unbolted and removed on he engine side, but that's rare
