Question about 2005 Dodge Caravan
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.
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.
