The resistor is on the ground side. This means that power goes the the blower first. Then through the resistor, then through the switch. And then I ally to ground. There should be power on the dark green wire at the blower motor with the key on. With the blower motor switch in the off position and the key on there should be power on every wire at the resistor. If there is no power on any wire and there is power on the dark green wire at the blower motor, than the blower motor is bad. Try tapping it with the handle end of a large screwdriver with the key on and the switch set to high. If it starts working replace it.

    I'm looking at the wiring diagram and can't seem to find a relay anywhere. Could you elaborate on where this relay is?

  • Rocky Degelman Nov 04, 2012

    If there is a fuse box in the engine compartment, There are usually relays in there allso. .Or easy way to find out if there is one for it is to call a dodge dealer ,The parts depart guys should be able to tell you if there is one for it ,End where it is, They might evan be able to help you oput with what the problem may be,For the hell of it ,I would get a resistor for it that look good from a auto wrecker end try it, From doing some searching on here, Some people are staying they had the same problem, End change the resistor,End claim it done the trick for them,,

SOURCE: 1996 Dodge Dakota heater doesn't get very hot only gets warm

it could be the heater controls itself i had a 95 ford f150 that did the same thing i replaced everything i could as i live in upstate ny and in the winter it gets pretty cold so replaced all i could ,heater coil,radiator,thermostat,coolant and nothing a local mechanic told me to check the control in the dash to see if it was going all the way to the hot position. i took the dash apart to get to it and checked it and the cable that mmoves the valve on the heater coil was stretched so it wasnt going all the way to hot. not that its the same thing but its a place to start

SOURCE: 95 dodge dakota heater blower not working

It has been a long time since I've replaced one of those. From what I remember you don't have to go through pulling the heater box out. You do need to remove the glove box assembly. Look up under the passenger side of the dash. If you see the bulge of the motor/cover hanging straight down then remove the cover and the motor will be there. If you don't see that then te motor is mounted horizonally. If that is the case then the fresh air door assembly will need to be removed and it is behind that.
Here is a quick check to see if the motor is bad. Thump the bottom of the heater box by the passenger's feet. if the motor comes alive or makes noise then it is bad. Also check the fuse and make sure that it doesn't work on any speed. (the resistor would prevent operation on only one speed or more but generally not all speeds)

My heater fan quit working on my 96 dodge dakota, checked the fuse, good, what else could be wrong?


The blower motor itself could possibly be seized. I would check for power at the resistor and the blower motor itself. If the blower motor has voltage at the motor I would replace the motor. If you have no voltage at the motor but voltage at the resistor it's the resistor ( generally if a resistor fails you still have HI, but not always ), If you have no voltage going to the resistor I would start the routine checkign of grounds, and possibly the switch itself, as well as any other fuses that may be hidden somewhere else like in the engine compartment.

1996 dodge dakota heater fan not working


FIRST THING MAKE SURE YOU CHECK ALL FUSES UNDER DASH AND IN POWER DISTRIBUTOIN BOX UNDER HOOD LET ME KNOW TAKE TEST LIGHT SEE IF ANY VOLTAGE ON MOTOR IF SO BAD MOTOR IF NO VOLTAGE THEN LOCATE THE BLOWER MOTOR RESISTOR FOR SPEED CONTROL....COMMON PROBLEM... THIS COULD BE LOCATED UNDER DASH ON PASSENGER SIDE IN THE HEATER CORE BOX OR UNDER HOOD PASSENGER SIDE NEAR FIRE WALL...THEY ARE ALSO COMMON FOR BURNING OPEN CAUSING NO FAN

Heater control only works on high


You need a blower motor resistor,and the heater blower motor should be checked for high amp draw. check Napa for the part or go to Dodge..prpbably about 60.00 dollars.

Heater blower on96 dodge dakota 4x4 stopped blowing,


If all the fuses are good(the blower fuse is usually a 30 amp) the next culprit could be a blower motor resistor. The resistor is normally under the dash with fat wires on it and screwed into the blower housing. You could have a bad motor also.
