Blower for heater not working

I have a 2003 Dodge dakota. 4.7 litre V8 . As soon as cold weather arrives the blower motor quit running. Sometimes it works on low or not at all. Took it to dealer and they said it is probably the resistor for blower motor but would have to do a diagnostic check ( costs money ) and then if it is the problem about 1 and a half hours labour. The resistor costs $25.10. The other costs are $47 for diagnostic check and $147 for labour. Need to find cheaper way to fix it . should be a lot less than $200 to fix a $25 part. Please help me !!!!!!!!!

I have the same problem, this is two years in a row! You can buy the resistor at a local auto parts store Murrays/auto zone I purchased another one today, it cost me $13.00 if you look under the dash by your glove box you will see a wiring harness/plug with four wires (looks like it's going into the duct work) there are only two screws holding the assembly in, remove them first before trying to unplug, as the plug has a clip on it and it's a lot easier once you remove the assembly. feel free to e-mail me with any questions klipowski at hotmail dot com. -Ken

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.

Those wires are likely going to blower resistor. Try replacing the blower resistor, and replace connectors on wires to it from blower motor. You just might get lucky. (blower resistor is what regulates blower speeds)

The heater quit working in my 2003 dakota 3.9 liter v6. A liitle heat comes out, but not much even with the gauge turned on high. Fuses in truck look good, coolant level good. Where is the location of the...


The control valve could be damaged or you could have a blockage in the heater core. Locate the valve in the engine compartment and watch it while someone inside the truck moves the heater lever back and forth. You want to verify that the valve is moving to open and close the pipe into the heater core. If that checks out ok, try to flush the heater core.

Look for a plastic black plate of rectangular shape. Thics could be under the hood on the pass. side firewall or under the dash on the pass. side. It will be attached to the ac/Heater box with to 5/16 hex head screws. The plate will have four push terminals connected to it by a singular connector plug. This is your blower resistor and controls the # 2 3 4 speeds from the switch. They go without notice. take it out and look for signs of burnt or melted coils.

Heater fan only works on the two low settings.


if you have checked the switch as recommended, it is most likely to be the heater resistor which contols the diffrerent speeds. it is
normally fited near to the motor and is a squarish block with multiplug on it and coils like springs in the centre of it, look at the coils they may be burnt out.hope this helps
