SOURCE: BLOWER MOTOR WILL NOT WORK
I'm not sure about your 2003 but I've just recently purchased a 96 and it has a terminal block mounted to the firewall on the passenger side. This block has about 6 yo 8 wires going to it and one of the wires goes to the blower motor. On this truck the wire is black with a yellow stripe, if I wiggle this wire it sparks at the terminal block and the blower motor works. I think all that this block is, is just a grounding block. I had a similar problem with my dad's chevy pickup and the ground wire to it was burnt. It mounted in the same place this dodge does. I just replaced the wire and it worked fine. Hope this helps and doesn't come too late.

it could be the heater controls itself i had a 95 ford f150 that did the same thing i replaced everything i could as i live in upstate ny and in the winter it gets pretty cold so replaced all i could ,heater coil,radiator,thermostat,coolant and nothing a local mechanic told me to check the control in the dash to see if it was going all the way to the hot position. i took the dash apart to get to it and checked it and the cable that mmoves the valve on the heater coil was stretched so it wasnt going all the way to hot. not that its the same thing but its a place to start

the resistor is behind your glove box. open the box and push in the sides to release it and let it hang down...the resistor is right there. I didn't try to replace it, a friend did it, but the part was under $20.

It has been a long time since I've replaced one of those. From what I remember you don't have to go through pulling the heater box out. You do need to remove the glove box assembly. Look up under the passenger side of the dash. If you see the bulge of the motor/cover hanging straight down then remove the cover and the motor will be there. If you don't see that then te motor is mounted horizonally. If that is the case then the fresh air door assembly will need to be removed and it is behind that.
Here is a quick check to see if the motor is bad. Thump the bottom of the heater box by the passenger's feet. if the motor comes alive or makes noise then it is bad. Also check the fuse and make sure that it doesn't work on any speed. (the resistor would prevent operation on only one speed or more but generally not all speeds)

Remove the cover plate on the passenger side of the heater box, 3-4 screws.
Unplug the motor assembly, remove 3-4 more screws that hold the motor in place and pull it down from its position. Get an aftermarket motor and installed it in the original housing with the original squirrel cage.
Installation is the reverse of removal.
