Heater blower switch broken

2002 Dodge Dakota. The blower switch on the dash only works on high. Nothings happens on the lower settings. Since this is also the on-off switch no heat comes out unless it is turned all the way up. Since the blower fan still works I suspect that the switch on the dash is bad and needs to be replaced.

Mine was doing the same, then just quit all together. I went and got a resistor and everything is working again. Pretty easy to replace as well.

If u have replaced the blower resistor and the problem re occurs check the connector to the resistor to make sure the connector is not burnt. if it is there is a replacement connector through dodge. the cause is the blower motor itself drawing to many amps. the blower motor and resistor must be replaced. i had the same problem.

Sounds like a blower motor resistor.

Where is the heater resistor on a 2005 dodge dakota? Behind glove box?


should be just above the blower motor. You will need to remove the glove box door to gain access.

The heater fan only works on two middle spots not on high or loww 2002 quadcab dakota

The heater in my 2002 Dakota works only at the very highest setting. There is no power at the lowers settings. The defrost light doesn't come on until that setting also, so definantly no power. When turned...


I'm assuming you mean the fan only works on high. If that's the case the blower motor resistor is bad. When the fan switch is on high it puts a full 12Volts to the blower motor. When you have the switch in any other possition, the voltage is routed through the resistor and reduced thus making the motor run slower.

Heater fan only works on the two low settings.


if you have checked the switch as recommended, it is most likely to be the heater resistor which contols the diffrerent speeds. it is
normally fited near to the motor and is a squarish block with multiplug on it and coils like springs in the centre of it, look at the coils they may be burnt out.hope this helps

The heater/defroster/ac control switch only works in the high position.


You probably have a bad blower resistor. it's located next to the blower motor under the dash.

The heater/defroster/ac switch


Sounds like a card located under dash behind your blower motor, on passenger side.When card starts going bad you will only have off and high (for awhile), then none. change the card, this thing controls your speeds on the motor at your control on dash. I have a 2002 Dakota had same problem... but keep in mind not all Dakotas have this card.
