1st off the bearings are sealed, and the noise is a bearing noise, the fan motor in behind the glove box and quite easy to replace

GW-2078, makes a high pitch noise when fan is running, how can this be corrected, other than that it works fine


Without me physically hearing the noise I can't be certain but it sounds like a bad bearing from what you described. I would try spraying a little WD-40 or some type of lube. If that doesn't work then the fan motor may have to be replaced.

It may be the bearings in the motor are dry or out. You coulod pull the motor and fan assembly out and check its operation while it is out of the heater case. Look for anything inside the heater cavity where the motor sits for any problem hindering motor operation.

Could the thermostat cause the heater to only blow cold air even though the motor runs normal temp on a 2003 dodge caravan


1st of all, you need to check your anti-freeze level. If its not full, the coolant cannot/will not flow throughout your heater core which the coolant flow through to heat your vehicle. If it is indeed up to the proper level? Than, yes I would look into the thremostat. It may not be opening up.

Fan blower motor only works on high position (either heat or ac) and the brearings squeel. Do in need to replave both the motor blower and resistor?


That's what it sounds like to me.

If the blower is making noise than the only thing you can do is replace it.

Blower resistors typically operate by dropping voltage through a set of resistors. The lower the speed the more resistance is needed. High speed requires no resistance and usually bypasses the resistor assembly.
