Question about 2001 Dodge Stratus
Blower just stopped working for heat
Check fuse. If ok there are resistors in the blower housing that give the different speeds to the motor when you select speeds at the switch. They regularly fail (burn out)

Since this resistor get hot as it does it's job it needs to be cooled. Usually it is below or behind the glove box, has three or four wires to the unit and is screwed to the air box, two or more screws......

I had the same thing happpen with mine. The unit is located behind the glove box and is just left of the fan held in place with two screws. I bought a new resistor from radio shack and installed it in the unit.

Yes there is a high blower motor relay just for that speed.It may be mounted near the blower motor,behind the glove box,or under the hood.

If you have a poor ground on the blower motor or very worn blower itself, it can cause the resistor to become hotter than it was designed for. Less common causes are restriction in air flow in the heater box (resistor is air cooled) or gross overcharge condition from a bad regulator.(generally this would show up in other powered components as well though)
