Question about 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan

Blower stopped working on 2002 dodge caravan

The front blower motor doesn't turn on at all when I turn the knob. It worked when I first got the van 6 months ago, then one day I turned it on high, I smelled burning electrical insulation so I turned it off. Two months later, on a lark, I turned it back on and it worked for about three weeks. Now it doesn't work at all. The back blower motor works only on the high setting. Can anyone help?

My blower motor resistor has went out every two years it's on the third once since we got it. Now it has lasted maybe 6 months. It made a high pitch squeal, and you would have to shut it off, turn on high a couple of times before it quit. Now my question is, is it still the same problem or something bigger now?

Someone would need to check the blower motor and the resistor for voltage and ground.

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.

SOURCE: air conditioning only works on high - 2002 Grand Caravan

If you are looking for the fan blower resistor, it is located behind the glove box. No tools need to get to it and a nut driver to remove the 2 screws to replace it. A 20$ part. It has 2 sets of wires coming off of it. A do it yourself fix.

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.

Blower fan control problem


Check the wiring to the motor and resistor pack For the motor to run at full speed all the time indicates that there is uncontrolled voltage to it which means that there is a earth after the motor before the resistor. For the resistor to burn out .Well it requires fan air flow to keep it cool and with the ignition off it must still be getting current to it to earth. I am suspecting a faulty automatic control module. I suggest you have it check out for failure.

Have you tested the front blower motor with a test lead hooked to 12 volts? Use a length of lamp cord and make up a jumper to test the blower, replace as necessary. Also inspect the connector to the blower for signs of melting or burning, replace as necessary.

turn it in and hit the blower with your hand most likely it will start and then that means you need a new blower motor.. most likely what caused your resistor to go bad.

The blower fan on my 2001 ford econoline e-250 has quit working just in time for sub-zero temperatures. It was working now and then since I bought the van 8 months ago. Where are the relays for the fan...


1 Open the hood, and remove the cover from the fuse block. Locate the fuse numbered "105,"and remove it with a fuse puller.

2 Install a replacement 40-amp fuse in slot "105," and reattach the fuse block cover. If the blower is still malfunctioning, you may need to replace the motor.

3 Open the passenger's side front door, and locate the blower underneath the right side of the dashboard. Remove the three screws securing it to the vehicle.

4 Remove the three screws securing the motor to the fan blower, and install a replacement motor.

5 Reinstall all of the screws, and close the door.

Hi, it sounds like your resistors are burning up one at a time. Sometimes a bad switch is the cause, but I bet you will find heat damage when you pull out the resistor. Let me see if I have a pic of where to find the resistor pack.

The air conditioner fan was working intermittently. It would come on and off. Now it doesn't come on at all. Cant' find the fuse or is it a relay?


Just replaced the blower motor on mine it is a real pain to do.Very expensive to have done.Motor is $200.00 at Auto Zone new,25.00 at the bone yard.If you have an electrical tester for dc voltage unplug the connector check center wire to outer wires while turning the fan speed cntrl up and down (+ & -) to see if you have power going to it,If yes you have a bad motor.Keep in mind there is power at outer wires all the time but checked one to another between the three you will only get power when the switch is turned on.I see this was 6 days ago,hope it helps.Blower motors are common problems with Cadillacs.

CHECK TURN SIGNAL FUSE.IT COULD BE BLOWED OR YOU HAVE FAULTY TURN SIGNAL SWITCH.BECAUSE BACK LIGHTS AND TAIL LIGHTS SHARE SAME CIRCUIT WITH TURN SIGNAL SWITCH.
