Question about 1999 Dodge Dakota
The heater fan does not work when I turn it on. How do I replace it?
On full size Dodges, the blower sits in a housing under the hood.
ON DAKOTAS, I seem to remember the blower being located (fan upward) in the passenger floorboard. You will find one plug that needs unplugging, and 3-4 bolts around the outer edge of the black plastic that comprises the visible part of the fan ***'y. These retaining bolts are usually 7mm or 8mm heads, and require a 1/4 inch drive socket setup. SOmetimes one of these bolts is at a rear edge and is harder to remove than the others due to the rising floorboard and lack of clearance. Use a swivel or a hand-held nutdriver with socket attached for the tough one.
Once bolts are removed, the fan will come out the bottom of the HVAC housing. Watch for a mouse nest or other debris, and remove any foreign matter from the cavity where the fan lives. It's easier if you are a small guy who can crawl around in the floorboard! When you unplug the fan, check to see if power is getting to one of the contacts before condemning the fan motor. Good luck and let me know if you need any more pointers. Thanks for using Fixya.com!
