Question about 2002 Dodge Grand 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.

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.

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.

it's the blower motor resistor , it's behind the glove compartment, just make sure you disconect the neg. for battery first, open the glove comp. and pull the rubber stops towars the center so you can let the glove comp. hang all the way to the floor , the resistor it's in front of you, disconect the two conectors there's one big with 6 0r 8 wires coming out and another with only two, take them out by pressing on the side of each one, remove it , put the new one on , conect the battery and your done. it's about $ 13.00 at o'riellys auto parts .
I hope this fix yor problem.

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.
