Question about 2001 Dodge Dakota
Fan switch seems to open vent allowing air flow when moving but no fan motor
Usually the fault lies with a failed "Blower Resistor". This part can be found at Napa Dealers. Auto Zone does not carry this item as I had this same problem just one week ago. The part is $15.99 and is very easily replaced! Located under you glove comapartment on the blower/ventilation duct unit. Two screws or hex bolts (5/16 head) are securing the resistor set. There is a diode attached to the top of this resistor bridge, so be careful to remove gently from the duct work. I say this if you want to test for an ohms value and continuity. When this resistor set fails usually the low and mid speeds are not funcitning. Then all that is remaining is the high speed. I had this exact symptom. The resistor bridge is a high failure item and will have to be replaced at some time anyhow. My truck is a 2003, and the part from Napa will require you to remove the small plastic tabs from the ends of the mounting base before installation. This will allow the news part to fit. So any Q's and my email firstname.lastname@example.org So go for it Dude!
