Question about 1997 Dodge Dakota

Dodge Dakota 1997 heater blower failure

The blower fan stopped working after struggling and working intermittently for a while. How do I get to it to replace it? It seems to be buried behind the dash and the ventilation air plenum. I can't see any way other than to shatter the plastic plenum after I completely remove the dash from the vehicle. Can this be right? Seems awfully excessive and expensive for so simple a repair.

    Nice try, The item is indeed located at the bottom of the dash, all the way over on the passenger side. And there are three bolts holding it in. HOWEVER on my 97 Dakota, the three bolts can ONLY BE ACCESSED by removing the front of the air plenum, which can only be gotten to by REMOVING THE ENTIRE DASH!!! So, your 'solution' is WRONG!!!!

It's located right at the bottom of the dash all the way at the far right of the passenger seat. 3 bolts and an ungodly tight clip on the wires are all that hold it in place

First, check the fuse. If that is good, chances are the blower motor is in need of replacement.

1997 Dodge Dakota 2WD with A/C. 135000 miles. Blower fan stopped working after a period of working intermittently. How do I replace it? It seems to be buried behind the dash and the ventilation air...


Wait, before you change that blower motor try replacing the blower motor resistor.It is located on the fire wall on the passanger side, under the hood. Should cost about 10 to 12 dollars and take about five minutes.Dakota's seem to go through these regularly.

I have a 1998 Dodge 1500 why does the heater/ac blower motor only work on high, do I need to replace the motor?


The motor is fine, the blower resistor is the most likely cause. All fan speeds except high go through the resistor.
