Question about 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan
I seems that the heater is on, but the heat is not being distributed because the blower has stopped working. Rear blower is working just fine. Checked fuse doesn't appear to need replacement. Hearing a lot about a resister but don't know where it is or how to replace it. The weather is cold and wet -Help!

I had the same problem, I changed the resistor that is located behind the glove compartment and it is all good now. That resistor doesn't look like a resistor when you look at it. To reconise this item, there are two connector attached to it, the one from the blower motor on which there is a green wire and a black wire. The other connector attached to the same resistor consist of 4 wires of diff colors.

I had the same problem. It was the blower motor resistor. To verify this, open the glove compartment and push in on the sides to release it from the dash. The resistor is right in front bolted into the duct with two screws (9mm Hex head) and their are two electrical harnesses connected, one with 5 wires and the other with 2 wires. To bypass the resistor, take a piece of wire and connect the plain dark blue wire to the black wire. If the blower comes on, the resistor is bad. Make sure that you have the fan on high to tell if it runs. The resistor should be in stock at a dealership and cost approximately $30. The Blower Motor Assembly costs about $90. Removal of the part is simple, disconnect the two harnesses and unbolt the two screws.

Check owners manual for location of heater blower motor front,check with a test light,if it's good locate blower motor under glove box and test the two wires for power when switch is turned on,if power is present motor needs changed.if no power check blower motor resister.

Used the bulletin board - swapped out the resistor and it works now.
Thanks for the bulletin boards...

Testimonial: "1 problem; 1 solution; 1 fix...great work!!!"
The Blower Motor Resistor is located behind the glove box on the dash. Remove the whole glove box to access. The Resistor is mounted against/sort of into the fire wall.
1. Disconnect the negative side of battery.
2. Disconnected the Electrical Connection to the Resistor.
3. Remove the bolts/screws. I believe they have 8mm heads, there should be 2 of them.
4. Replace with new one/Replug electrical connection.
5. Reconnect the negative side last.
6. Test System before putting the glove box back in!
The Blower Motor is easy (compared to $1000) to remove and replace.

Tips for a great answer:
HEATER BLOWER MOTOR
faulty blower motor resistor. The low and medium speed on blower motor is
controlled by resistor and its actual speed is high. So because resistor is not
working, blower motors actual speed which is high is working.
can be faulty blower motor or faulty blower motor resistor. Get the blower
motor inspected. If it's faulty it has to be replaced.
blower motor testing and replacing, check the link below: ----
These will help.
