Question about 1998 Dodge Caravan
When you turn on the blower fan motor, sometimes it will run and
sometmes it doesn't. When it doesn't you can give it a smack with your
hand and most times it starts up, but not always.
I have changed the control panel, same problem.
I might add that it seems that the colder it is the more times yoou have to bump it. also tried healys didn't fix the problem?
Hi my name ia Allen!
This is a tough one, because when something is still working its hard to penpoint the problem.
This can be a lot of things, one a blower motor resister, two blower motor relay could be going bad, three could be a wiring problem.
But here is the most common problem with that year. Under your hood on the left side as you are facing the vehicle, back on the firewall there is a connector that burns up on the blower resister.
Here is what I need you to do, turn the key on with the blower on high so you can here it, you need to wiggle that connector and listen for the blower motor to go of and on. If this happens, you will need a resister and wiring pigtail, because the wiring will have to be replaced and the resister will have to be replace, but we can get to that when we get there.
Let me know what you find, waiting for your reply.
