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!

Where is the heater resistor on a 2005 dodge dakota? Behind glove box?


should be just above the blower motor. You will need to remove the glove box door to gain access.

My heater fan quit working on my 96 dodge dakota, checked the fuse, good, what else could be wrong?


The blower motor itself could possibly be seized. I would check for power at the resistor and the blower motor itself. If the blower motor has voltage at the motor I would replace the motor. If you have no voltage at the motor but voltage at the resistor it's the resistor ( generally if a resistor fails you still have HI, but not always ), If you have no voltage going to the resistor I would start the routine checkign of grounds, and possibly the switch itself, as well as any other fuses that may be hidden somewhere else like in the engine compartment.

1992 Dakota heater problem??


The fan generally is located under the dash on the passenger side... while you are there you will notice a couple wires plugged into the side of the duct work near the fan... that's your resister block for the fan speeds... it's likely failed... remove the two or three screws holding it in... unplug the connecter and replace it.
