Try SaabUSAparts.com they are a saab dealership but sell parts at wholesale for the website. Remove the glove box, side panel, and kick plate. When you receive your replacement part you will know what to look for. It is in the heater fan assembly towards the left and just snaps in, no screws. The large metal thorn part is hidden in the heater fan assembly.

BLOWERMOTOR


Is there a blower resistor module and/or relay? The blower resistor module often has a zener diode that burns out over time.(If you find this issue,see if you have a plugged up cabin air filter also).

2002 grand caravan blower motor intermittent replaced resistor


in review
the fan speed resistor is new
you bench tested the blower motor
12 volts test ..only runs it at full speed
if cabin filer want changed the blower motor would run hotter

could be the motor brushes or bush/motor bearing when slowed
you might want to inspect the brushes and clean the dust out of the motor
if no better
does that have climate control ?
might be the fan switch itself or the earth isnt so good

A clogged cabin air filter can cause repeat resistor failures. A bad blower fan can also cause repeat resistor failure.

Blower swith in position 1,2,3 no blower, in


Check the cover for the environmental cabin filter. It is located on the far right side of the cowling right below the right windshield wiper. There are a few torx screws that secure the cover and then it pulls out to reveal the cabin filter. The cover (being poorly designed by VW) cracks and during rain the rain runs off the window and soaks the cabin filter. The water from the soaked filter then drips down into the blower motor and shorts out the resistor module at the bottom of the blower motor. The blower will continue to operate at full speed because it is operating on an open circuit without need for resistance for the resistor pack. There is a small access "panel" at the bottom of the blower motor you will need to remove in order to see the problem, you should see a frighteningly burned looking module in there. Good Luck! Hope this helps!

Blower motor resistor


The blower motor resistor is located near the blower motor. It is held in place by 2 screws, and has a wire clip connected to it. Very simple fix.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.

it's either a fuse or it's a bad blower motor, it could be a bad blower motor resistor but usually you'll get either high or low only, so if you have nothing on any speed, high low etc, and all the fuses are ok chances are it's your blower motor.
