Question about 2001 Dodge Durango

2 Answers

No power to blower motor resistor

Checked blower motor and it is OK when hot wired.
Checked the fuses in the side of the dash, seems OK.
No power to the resistor.
If you check the electric at the blower motor, the hot wire is hot
all the time, so it seems like it is on the ground side.
Is there any relay or fuses under the hood??
I have no wiring diagram for a 2001 Dodge Durango.
Thanks, Bill

Most of the interior grounds are located under the carpet on the fire wall behind the center counsel. If you have the orginal circuit board looking blower motor resistor chances are it is bad. Dodge has change the resistor style due to issues.

2005 Avalanche blower not working on any speed,checked fuse seems to be ok. Removed glove box ,not sure what to check. Thanks James,


get a circuit tester and attach it to 12 volt battery circuit.then find the blower motor resistor and probe the wires going to it. the test light should come on if the resistor is good because it is suppling ground to the blower motor. each wire is for a different blwer setting so you will have to check them all on different levels of the blower switch.

Blower suddenly quit working


The recharge of your a/c system and this is unrelated, could be a bad blower motor or blower motor resistor, have you checked your blower motor fuse? If fuse good, check voltage at blower motor, sit under dash on passenger side, just below dash, you will be able to see it, will have two wire's going to it, only one will have voltage with switch on, if you have voltage replace it, not that hard of a job to do, shop repair time to remove and replace blower motor is .7 tenths of an hour, hope this was very helpful.

three things left to check,
using test light see if you have power at motor with key and switch on,if you do replace motor,if not locate blower motor resistor it will be close to motor,check for power going in,last is the heater control assembly

Carina E L Reg. my heater blower has stopped working,Cant demist or heat. I have checked fuses as described in the manual and they are ok HELP please


If the engine compartment fuse #105 is OK, next 2 items are :

1. Blower motor relay. This is in the same fuse block as the flasher, under the dash, about in line with the steering wheel column. It should have a cover on it, so it will be black, and hard to see.

When you pull it, you can bypass the control panel operation of it, by jumpering the normally open contacts ( show below with the red line )

If this does not work, the next thing to check is the blower motor resistor, mounted in the blower duct on the passenger side :

The right hand side of the picture, is the passenger side kick panel where the fuel inertia switch is at. The wiring pigtail shown goes to the blower motor resistor, which is towards the left / driver's side.

The resistor usually goes out, with only the high speed part working, but you could have a case where all are out ( seen it happen before ).
The black wire in this harness should go directly to ground ( check with a meter to the ground lugs behind the passenger side kick panel ).
A loose / missing ground to the blower motor resistor will also give the same symptoms of a blown resistor pack.

IT COULD BE BLOWER MOTOR NOT GROUNDED.YOUR BLOWER MOTOR FUSE AND RELAY COULD BE BAD.MAKE SURE POWER IS GOING TO BLOWER.MOTOR.CHECK TO SEE IF POWER IS GOING TO SWITCH IF SO SWITCH COULD BE BAD.HOT WIRE BLOWER MOTOR USING JUMPER WIRE AND POWER FROM THE BATTERY.IF BLOWER MOTOR WORKS.YOU HAVE FUSE RELAY AND SWITCH PROBLEM.MOST THE TIME WHEN RESISTOR BAD.YOUR BLOWER MOTOR ONLY WORK ONE SPEED SOME TIME.

2003 Buick Century Low Speed Blower


You may have a bad blower motor resistor. The blower motor is located in the passenger side foot well. You will need to remove the kick panel on the passenger side to get at the motor. 
The blower motor resistor is located on the back of the blower motor housing under the dash on the passenger side. It can be difficult to get at. Remove the cover panel from beneath the dash on the passenger side. Unplug the power 'ribbon' wires leading to the resistor. Unplug the wires that lead from the resistor to the blower motor housing.
There are usually two, one black and one purple that share the same plug. Remove the short hose that leads from the blower motor housing to the ventilation ducts. Remove the blower motor by removing the three hex screws that hold it in place. Remove the resistor by removing the three hex screws that hold it in place. 
The resistor is right against the firewall so two of the screws are very difficult to reach. A slender flexible socket extension will make the job easier. Attach the new resistor in place using the same hex screws. Only 1 or 2 of the original three are needed (the part is very light) if you do not feel like fighting with the ones next to the firewall.Reattach the blower motor and reconnect the hose. Plug the power cable wires back into the resistor and the wire from the resistor back into the blower motor.


Good luck and hope this helps.

Blower is not blowing and I realize I need to check the controls but need to know where the blower motor is.


its under your pass side dash but start with the resistor first put your blower motor on high and push around on your resistor under your glove box,if it will come on by moving it around its your resistor

Blower control switch


do have any power on either wire going to the blower. the power runs from the fuse block through a relay, to the blower, to the resistor block and finally to the dash control. of you have power only on one side of the blower replace the blower. if you have no power at the blower replace the relay.

Hope this helps.
