If all the fuses are good(the blower fuse is usually a 30 amp) the next culprit could be a blower motor resistor. The resistor is normally under the dash with fat wires on it and screwed into the blower housing. You could have a bad motor also.

Hvac blower doesn't blow.


A blown fuse is the most likely cause. Check your owners manual for location of fuse box. While you are at it, check your cabin air filter under the dash. If it is stopped up the blower can't blow any air.

1992 Dodge Dakota 2wd 3.9L V6 Air conditioning/Heater dosent blow? when i turn the air or the heat on i can hear the compressor kick on but it dosen't blow cold or hot? any help would be appreciated


Roger it sounds like the blower motor is not comming on. There is a resistor network located in the engine compartment on the passenger side mounted to the firewall, that controlls the blower motor. The connections may have corroted or the unit itself is bad. That was the first thing I had to relpace when I got my used 92 Dakota. There is also a 30 amp fuse in the fuse box under the dash board . If that is blown I would suspect the blower motor is seized up or just pulling too much power.

Heat and air condition fan stopped working on my 2004 Dodge Dakota, does not blow, ice is comming in and i need to be able to defrost my windshield and heat my truck


First thing to check is the fuse. There will be one under the hood and another in the interior fuse box. The 2004 model does nt have a relay. If the fuse is good, you need to check to see if the blower motor is good. The motor is located under the glove compartment area of the dash, near the firewall. Disconnect the harness from the blower motor, and using jumper wires, apply voltage directly to the blower motor contacts. If the blower motor works, then the switch is bad. If the blower still does not work then the motor is bad.

The blower motor in my 1989 Dodge Dakota suddenly stopped working. Will not blow anything on any speed or on hot or cold!


Have you checked for a blown fuse first. There are two fuse control panels - one under the driver's dash board and one in the engine compartment. The one in the engine compartment should have the blower fuse. If the fuse is good, check the blower relay (this is also in the engine compartment). The cover to the fuse box has a diagram of the fuse locations and descriptions. "BLWR" is usually used for blower.

I would suggest changing the control head. You should be able to source a used unit from a local salvage yard.
