A resister would only cause it not to work on 1or2 speeds, Not all of them, The Blower motor is shot (Probally) They don,t last for ever, There is allso a relay for them in the fuse block in the engine compartment, That might be defective,

    I decided that since the resister was only $14.00 to give it a try. Glad I did - It worked! And it was so easy to replace. I did it myself, woman with no mechanical experience whatsoever, took about 5 minutes. And that was just becaus I had a hard time getting the wire harness out of the old resister. Yay!

SOURCE: 05 Dodge Caravan Front blower doesn't work but rear blower works

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.

SOURCE: my front fan blower stopped working, the rear one works fine

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.

SOURCE: 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan heater blower motor not

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.

My heater blowers dnt work and i need to knw where i can locate the resister blocks for my heater blowers so i can ghange them


Its located under dash,or near glove box.

The dash panel lower side has to be out.

HEATER BLOWER MOTOR


Its 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.


It can be faulty blower motor or faulty blower motor resistor. Get the blower motor inspected. If it's faulty it has to be replaced.

The blowers ion the back have there own blower motor. The front has it's own. The resister controls the range the blower motor runs on,( low, medium, high). If the blower motor is not working it may be the motor itself. Was the fuse checked:?

94 Celica Heater not blowing


Could be a blown fuse for the blower motor or the blower motor itself is worn out. There is also a blower motor resister pack that could be at fault--it has three resisters in it that vary the blower speed--but it would be unusual for it to fail in such a way that the blower stops. Usually it just gets stuck on one speed. However, the resister is located down near your feet on one side (I forget which for that model) and if the wiring connector becomes unplugged (from an accidental kick), then the blower won't work.

Blower for heat.


If the blower is totaly not working it could be a bad motor or a loss of power (or ground) to the motor. There is a blower motor relay on the power distribution box on the right innner fender. There may be a fuse for the heater circuit, also. Power also goes through a blower motor resister that controls blower speeds. If any one of these are bad it will (can) cause the blower motor to not work. I would first check all your fuses. If you have the ability to check for power continuity (with a test light or multimeter) I would check to see if the motor is even getting power. It is also possible that your heater control switch is not sending power to the relay. Electrical can be hard to track sometimes. Good Luck.

2001durango slt no heat in front


I have a 2001 Black Durango that had the same problem. There is a resister to the right of the ac/heat blower (underneath the dash on passaenger side). This needs to be replaced. You might want to replace the motor as well. Both are real easy. I had replaced the resister first and everthing worked fine for about 6 months and then my ac/heat would only works on high. I replaced the motor and now it works just fine. The resister was about $15 at dealership and the motor is prob around $40-$50. I hopes this helps. Good Luck!
