Replacing Blower Motor Resistor

Need diagram of how to change out Blower motor resistor. 2003 T&C Chrysler with automatic climate control. After work one day, the blower just took over and runs full speed. If you turn OFF the power button, the re-circulation mode comes on. The temp controls work ok. The Rear system is OK.

I'll try the resistor block thing.

    I have the same problem as bsizelove. I am curious if the resister block cured the problem or not.

  1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
  2. Open the glove box.
  3. Flex both sides of the glove box bin inward near the top far enough for the rubber glove box stop bumpers to clear the sides of the glove box opening, then roll the glove box downward.
  4. Reach through the glove box opening to access and disconnect the instrument panel wire harness connector for the blower motor resistor from the resistor connector receptacle (Blower Motor Resistor).
  5. Reach through the glove box opening to access and disconnect the blower motor pigtail wire connector from the resistor connector receptacle.
  6. Remove the two screws that secure the blower motor resistor to the evaporator housing.
  7. Remove the blower motor resistor from the evaporator housing.Replacing Blower Motor Resistor - 80ac4e54.gif

Only the fan climate control is not working. The display climate control is working but only the fan.

That is the heater / AC blower motor ! There are electrical circuits and relays and blower motor resistor , blower motor etc... Electrical testing is the way to diagnose blower motor circuit . Looking at a wiring diagram to see what controls the blower motor on your particular vehicle would be the first step in diagnosing your problem . Do you know how to do automotive electrical testing , how to read or follow a wiring diagram ? Videos on youtube show how to test blower motor and related parts and wiring .

Heater switch replacment

Hello! it's my job to make things as easy for the customer as possible...Therefore I must ask why you want to replace the heater switch? Is it because you have lost one or two of the switch speeds? Your vehicle is noted for loss of the Blower Motor Resistor...
Changing the Heater switch means removal of the Climate Control Assembly which is not the easiest of jobs...I've included the process...But are you sure the blower resistor is OK? If you have lost 1,2, or all blower motor speeds it's more than likely the Resistor pack. And a lot easier to change...

Remove climate control:

  1. Remove the instrument cluster finish panel...
  1. Remove the 3 climate control assembly screws...
  1. Disconnect the climate control assembly vacuum connector...
  1. Disconnect the 5 climate control assembly electrical connectors...
  1. Remove the climate control assembly..
Removal of blower motor Switch:
  1. Remove the climate control assembly.
  1. Remove the blower motor switch knob.
  1. Remove the blower motor switch.
    1. Remove the screw.
    1. Remove the blower motor switch.

A/C Blower Switch on chrysler----- Blower works in

Chrysler vehicles are notorious for the blower motor resistor going out. If your Town & Country has automatic climate control use a SMP RU399, else use an SMP RU362 for the front resistor and a SMP RU490 for the rear. They are generally located on top of the blower motor/wheel assemblies.

My heat or my defrost will not blow and when it does blow it wont turn off

If you have automatic climate control, you need to replace your blower controle module
If you have manual climate controls, you need to replace the blower motor resistor assembly.

no ,the climate control assembly has a problem of shorting out to black,sometimes a good hit brings it back for awhile.the blower motor problem is the blower motor resistor,if you under the dash,behind the glove box you will find the blower motor,follow the motor wire about 10 inches away from motor and they plug into the faulty resistor.

You can purchase a repair manual for the car on ebay motors that will have a electrical component locator for $20.00, First try looking under the dash board in the general area of the glove box to locate the heater box the fan resistor will have 3 or 4 wires going to the side of the heater box it is held on by small machine screws usually remove with a 1/4" socket wrench with the appropriate size socket usually an 8 or 9 mm hopefully you can change it yourself you may need to remove a cover underneath to gain access to the heater box if not get the cd repair manual on ebay to walk you through the repair.
