Question about 1997 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

Jeep Blower Motor

Just replaced the blower motor and blower motor resistor on my 97 jeep wrangler. I was only getting air flow on the high setting and only for about 2 minutes before the motor sounded like a dying cat and the quit working. As soon as I replaced both items, I get air and changing speeds, however there is a terrible noise like something is rubbing, however I can not seem to find what is rubbing. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    I am having the same problem.First I had only heat on high setting then heat worked great as long as Jeep was "cold" in the morning. Finally got to the point where it didn't work at all. For the past couple months it only works if I give it a "love tap" with my foot on the air box.Today it finally quit.I can here something tapping near the blower motor like maybe the squirrel cage is dragging. I have done everything short of replacing the motor.Do any of these symptoms sound familiar??

SOURCE: how to replace a blower motor resistor in a 2004 jeep liberty

I'm not 100% sure where it is, or possibly built right in to the dash control/fan switch, but I'd be tempted to stop & see the parts guy at the dealership, or another dealership, and ask if they have one, or a picture of one. Once you see it, you'll know where to look. Just a guess but quite often built right into switch on dash.

You have to take the glove box off and it is right behind it, need a #20 Torx to take it replace it. The glove box is the hardest part of the job, I just replaced mine on an 05 Grand Cherokee but it didn't fix it for me, was well worth the $8.60 to try though.

SOURCE: ac blower won't work. Resistor has been replaced 3 times. I think it is the problem now. Is it easy to replace? Where is it?

Blower motor resistors are found on the pasenger side ducts near the blower motor. It should have three wires going to it.

Run a new wire to the motor from the switch this will do 2 things for you. It will tell you if your switch is still good, and if it works you just fixed your problem.

2003 jeep wrangler blower not working on high


Sounds like the resistor block that controls your blower motor has started to go.this is a replace only to fix this problem.Go along to your local parts store and see if you can get a new one,if not its to the dealer.With the new part in hand go under the dash on the passenger side,and look for a loom of wires that will be close to the blower motor.The resistor block will be in the air box somewhere( for cooling purposes) and is usually held on with two screws. disconnect the wires first then remove the block.reverse for install.good luck

My 1998 Jeep Wrangler Heater Motor only has one speed High. Nothing on any of the lower ones, no matter on ac or heat. What could be the problem?


This is 100% the Blower (Fan) Motor Resistor located near the Blower Motor.
This is a very common problem with Chyrsler, Dodge, Jeep and Plymouth. The key symptom is the Fan only working on High.
This is very easy to access and replace.

Let me know if this helped....

2001 Jeep Wrangler heater blower stopped working


Yes I would go with the switch, BUT, does it have a resistor bank? That is, how does it reduce the speed? Many systems use resistors to lower the speed. Burnt or bad connections can cause this as well.
You can test the blower motor by connecting direct power from a source like the cigarette lighter if you are handy.
Most of the time the lower speeds konk out but the high speed continues to work this is the resistor bank that goes out.

Blower speed question (ac/heater). This just


This is definitely 100% the Blower Motor Resistor.
Replace this and all speeds will work fine.
This Resistor is defined with 3 to 4 wires going into it, and is located adjacent to the Blower Motor.
It is easily access, removed and replaced.
I will post an additional comment on Part Number, Price and where available.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Have a 2003 Jeep Wrangler, Rubicon and the hear/AC blower fan only comes on in the high position. The other setting low, med and med/high the blower will not come on. Is this the controller it self?...


The problem usually stems with the blower motor resistor,high speed by-passes it and there-fore the controller is sending power but the resistor has gone open and the speeds can't be regulated.
