Hi ,The resistor is in the heater box located under the dash on the passenger side.It can be seen when you crawl under the dash and look up. It has two or three bolts on it. It will also have a plug connected to it, which has to be disconected.

    on the 2000 Grand Caravan SE, there are no screws. The assembly 'snaps' into the rectangular hole, and the only way to get it off - is to YANK it off!
    It IS located on the passenger side under the hood, next to the strut tower on the back wall. It is a tan gray phenolic block with a black connector. Grab a hold of the edges and pry it off. There is no nice way of doing it! The new one just snaps into the rectangular hole...

The blower resistor needs to be replaced, It is an inexpensive part in most cases and easily replaced if you dont mind standing on your head in teh passenger foot well. the worst part of the job is getting it unbolted. it is mounted in the heater box, it usually has two screws ond four or five heavy gauge wires going to it, if you cant find it look for the blower motor wire harnes and follow it back to the resistor.

I have the 2003 caravan the best way to do this is remove the glove box like Paul and John said by squeezing both end of the box and it goes rite down and the resistor is right in front of you remove harness and two screws this is about a10 min. job it cost me $15.77 for part at the dealer.. part # 1-68029175AA good luck

Paul has it right! I found that the "resistor" is actually an array of resistors and a thermal cutout. In my case the thermal cutout was the issue. Total cost.......3 bucks!

Heater switch on a 2005 dodge caravan does not work on high


Could be a bad switch or it may be high blower relay.

2001 dodge caravan front heater does not work but the rear heater works fine


Your resistor is burned out that is why you only get high speed. Also the front blower motor is out. But check the wiring going to the resistor and make sure it is not burnt, if it is it also has to be replaced. Just went through the same issues.

01- Dodge Caravan AC Heater Control it only works on high none of the speeds work when I rotate the switch from low to high. Is this a swith problem or a motor problem?


Most likely neither. The most common cause is that an electrical device called the blower motor resister block, has failed. This device provides all the slower speeds. It is generally mounted in the HVAC [Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning] box, very close to the blower motor. FYI, we mechanics call the fan motor inside the cabin the blower motor. The electric fan motor behind the radiator is called the cooling fan motor.
If the resistor block is OK, then you have either a bad fan speed switch or a melted electrical connector at that switch. 95% of the time, the resister block is the problem.

Heater fan only works on "high speed"


All cars are designed with a blower fan motor that pushes air through the ventilation system. This air is processed by a series of vents to direct the air to various positions. Example: heater, air conditioner and defrost modes. Most blower motors are power by a basic electrical circuit that utilizes a multi resistor or a solid-state resistor to control different fan speed modes (low, medium low, medium and high). If the resistor malfunctions it may lose one or more of the lower fan speed settings.
