Question about 2005 Dodge Caravan

No heat blowing out

I have a 2005 dodge Caravan. I have no heat. It is like the blower just stoped working. Thought it could be a fuse but there are no normal fuses in this vehicle. Talked to a couple of dealerships and they really dont know what to say.

    I woke up this morning to 4" of snow and no blower motor. Could still fel heat coming from heater, just nothing to blow it around. Went to local junkyard and replaced teh blower motor, which put me right back where I started. As of now, nothing.

    Started with my door locks not locking as usual when the van was moving. Then my lights started to pulsate, or surge or something. On monday, my heater worked fine, (it's been in the teens and single digits for 2 weeks now), and tuesday, started up the van, and the heater won't blow! There is heat in the vents, it just won't blow. You can hear that it wants to when you turn the fan on...it just won't! Checked the fuses and relays, and they look fine. Anyone figured this out yet?

    One minute the fan "blower" works and the next minute it quits. Checked fuse and it was fine, took to dealership where they replaced blower and resister on my 2005 Dodge Caravan with 51,350 kms to the tune of $630.00, Ouch!!

Same problem, so I replaced my resistor block only to have it go after two weeks. I talked to a mechanic/friend who had similar problems with his Sebring. The OEM resistor blocks have a fatal flaw. There's a diode in between the coils in the unit. No one, including a dodge mechanic can tell me why it's there other than suggesting that it may be there for diagnostics. The diode is quite likely the problem as it tends to fry due to heat from the engine compartment. Simple and free fix: bend the tabs on the cage and remove. Snip the diode, push the wires together and solder. If you bend the resistor coils to get at the diode, bend them back. Put the cage back on and make sure no coil is touching another or the cage. re-install and you'll be good to go. My friends Sebring has been running that way for two years, my Caravan for six months. No problems. And to think, the dodge dealer to me that my blower motor was the problem (even though it worked fine, just on high only) and quoted $800!

Get to an electriciant,let him trace the wire and check the relay,and as well the motor fan can be tested by by removing the socket by the use of reader,to see if the motor fan is ok or faulty.and if the fan is ok then it might be relay.

Blower not working on heat or ac 2005 dodge caravan sxt not fuse or relay what else ?


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. If you are positive that is not the fuse or relay that is the issue, it is either a bad wire/connection to the blower or the blower is bad. I would use a voltage meter to check the current going to the blower. If it is getting power, change the blower motor itself.

2005 grand caravan; rear blower motor is working, but the front blower is not even though the lights on the swith are working. Is this the resistor?


Access the blower motor resistor board located behind the glove box. Take a jumper wire and ground each of the Dark Blue wires that have tracers on them one at a time. Caution: do not ground out the plain Dark Blue wire or a fuse will blow. As each wire (with the tracer) is grounded, the blower motor should run at a different speed. If it does not, the resistor board has failed.

We have a dodge caravan, and blower motor quit working so i replaced it, it still doesnt work, is the only fuse panel under the hood


tn my 2005 Grand Caravan there is a resister unit located behind the glove box that also has a "thermal fuse link". This fuse is not replacable and if it blows your fan motor will not work. The replacment unit is $14.00 at Auto Zone.
