Okay, this problem is very common, even if the connector did pull off it would be no good due to melting and bruning of connector.
This problem is common on dodge and chrysler cars and truck.
To solve your problem you will need to cut wires about 2inches back from connector, you will be replacing the blower resistor and connector. i am doing one as we speak, i have done many of these, the one i am doing is on a durango.
you will need to go to dealer for the connector, the connector will come in a kit, they give you a bunch of wires with small connector that slides into new plug, you match up the wire size to the same size wire you have or can use a bigger wire but never go thinner, you will use your old connector as a guide to install the new wires into new connector, then again using old connector to match new wires to wires in truck, then tape up connections,
it is not hard at all to do just make sure correct wire is going into correct slot on new connector, you will need to label them with a piece of tape and write old wire color on tape or use old connector to match up wiring. the new wires are not the same color they are green and purple wires only which is what they sell in kit,
the part # for wiring kit is 1-05017124ac this contains the wires ,crimps and plug.
the resistor # is 1-05061575aa.
I would give the dealer the year,make, model and the vin # just to make sure your kit is the same. good luck and if you need help write back.
IMPORTANT ; make sure when cutting wires that key is off and cut one wire at a time, this will avoid popping a fuse. good day
