Question about Chrysler Town and Country

1 Answer

I have a 2002 Ton and country minivan. The blower fan is running at the same speed while the ignition is on. The blower fan cannot be turned off or the speed adjusted by the switch. Is this a switch problem or the switch resistor malfunctioning. I had replced the switch resitor a couple of years ago when the blower fan was not working at all. That solved that problem but this one is a little different in the opposite direction in that it cannot be turned off while the vehilce is running.

    I replaced the blower motor resistor and things worked good for a couple of days until the problem resurfaced again. I had a similar problem about six months earlier and had replaced the resistor then. This took care of the problem until recently. There must be something else going on to cause 3 resistors to malfunction within the last 6 months. Could it possibly be a problem with the switch? The blower fan seems to be working fine. The problem is it appears to be on the high setting no matter what position the switch is in. It only turns off when the ignition is turned off or I pull the fuse. Any help would be appreciated. THANKS

It sounds like the blower motor resistor is bad . it is located behind the glove box and is very easy to replace. i think it was about 40 bucks. i hope this helps .

assuming you know where your blower motor is you can check the motor for power with the switch on and see if you have battery voltage at the connector. if you do then it is a bad blower motor. Most of the time when a resistor goes out it will work on high only but no other settings. with it not working at all seems to be motor. Hope this is helpful.

SOURCE: 2004 Chevrolet Silverado Heater/AC Blower on without Ignition ON

there is no relay for the heater fan it's a 15 amp fuse and is on the accessories circuit. the reostat is responsible for all 3 speeds .with the key off there should be no voltage to the blower motor whether the fans speed fan switch is on or off. the fuse will be located in the fuse paneleither on the drivers left side in the dash or underneath the dash in the fuse block. you have a short in the harness that is under the dash and most likely it's a bad plug on the harness. your going to have to do some searching but that's where the problem short is... please rate

SOURCE: Lincoln 2000 town car Blower doesn't work at HI-MED-LOW speeds...

it is called blower motor resistor , should be close to blower motor , you will see a plug type connector with two screws , remove the screws and there should be a resistor inside the cover for the motor, swap with new and reassemble

Look next to the blower. You can remove the panel under the passenger side. Go through the glove box and move it down out of the way to access the electrical connector. Then remove two bolts and the electrical connector.

SOURCE: heater (and a/c) blower motor runs only at the two highest speeds

I had the same exact symptom (02 Prizm LSI)..Order yourself a Blower Motor Resistor (I clicked on it---scroll up on this same screen that you are reading--- AC Delco part, $25.79). When the part arrives, look at it, and then look behind and to the left of your glove box door, YOU WILL SEE IT RIGHT AWAY. 2 screws, takes about 10 minutes to change. Its been nice to get all 4 speeds back! Good luck.

Where is the rear heater core located on a 2002 town and country minivan?


hi,
Generally, in motor vehicles, the cabin air fans get the warm air from the same hot water/coolant circulating through the engine.
Surely, the leaking staff is antifreeze from the air blower heater element like a radiator. check the hoses in case of breaking and their joint in case of loose clamps.

Blower fan control problem


Check the wiring to the motor and resistor pack For the motor to run at full speed all the time indicates that there is uncontrolled voltage to it which means that there is a earth after the motor before the resistor. For the resistor to burn out .Well it requires fan air flow to keep it cool and with the ignition off it must still be getting current to it to earth. I am suspecting a faulty automatic control module. I suggest you have it check out for failure.

2002 town & country blower motor will not


In order to achieve different speeds for the fan motor, there is a bank of resistors that reduce the voltage depending on what speed is selected. This is basicaly the same design for all cars on the road. The fail mode causes the full voltage to bypass the resistor bank so the fan runs at high speed (maybe even higher than your normal high setting). On most newer vehicles, including your '02 T&C, to help keep the resistors cool, they are mounted to a heatsink and then that assembly is mounted in a hole in the A/C ductwork just below or behind the glovebox. My '02 T&C has the 3 zone auto temp control and it had a fancier resistor block, but the function is the same. You should be able to get the cheaper one for <$25 at a parts store.

Heater blower will not turn off. i can not turn off the blower to the front passengers with the blower control.


If you are able to turn it down to a very slow speed but not all the way off, this is normal. Code requires the fan run a minimum speed anytime engine is running -- result of many carbon monoxide deaths.

does it turn off when the car turns off? if so, you probably need a new blower motor resistor. They run about $80 but shop around. Fixed my problem right away

Blower only runs on high


Ignition switch is the culprit. On Fords for high speed blower motor is direct whereas the lower speeds go through the ignition switch. If there is an issue with the switch the blower will only work at high speed. A schematic will confirm that.
