Question about 1999 Chrysler Sebring

1 Answer

Heater fan only works on high speed

The fan only works on high speed. I took it to a Chrysler Dealership and was told the fan selector switch was burned out and needed too be replaced. I replaced it. My car is a 1999 Sebring. The switch is located under the dash on the heater plenum at the heater. It worked just like new again. BUT, it only lasted for about 2 months. It has burned out again. I don't want to continue to replace this switch at $35.00 + every 2 months. What is causing it to burn out?

Usually when the blower motor gets old its starts to draw more current to run. which can pop fuses, burn out resistors and melt wires. also when you go to replace the resistor check the connector for signs of melting or burning you may end up having to replace that conector

Need the location of the fan resistor,


More likely it's your fan speed switch. If the resistor pack goes bad, usually fan only works on high speed, but is still turned on and off by the fan switch. If yours stays on all time with key on, and won't turn off by the fan switch, probably a bad fan switch.
The resistor will be on the heater case, mounted with two small screws, a small rectangle with a wire connector with 4 or 5 wires to it, and not far from the blower motor.

Heater fan not operating


Most of the time when a heater blower quits working it is the blower switch that fails rather than the motor. Blower switch can be accessed in the dash panel.

the resistor for the blower motor is faulty, its either integrated into the switch (speed selector) or its on the firewall somewhere, where ever it is, it has to be replaced.
