Question about 2002 Chrysler Town & Country

Blower fan control problem

The blower fan in my 2002 Town and Country is continuously running at high speed. It does not matter what position the speed control switch is in. The only way to turn the blower fan off is to pull the fuse or turn the ignition off. I had a similar problem about six months ago and resolved the problem by replacing the blower fan resistor. That worked until the problem recently surfaced again. I replaced the resistor a couple of days ago and the problem returned after a couple of days. This was the third resistor in 6 months that has been in my van. It appears that there is more going on than the blower resistor. Could it have something to do with the control switch or some other component? The blower fan appears to be working OK. The van does have the automatic temperature control feature which calls for a significantly more costly resistor (around $70). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

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.

SOURCE: Replacing Blower Motor Resistor

  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.80ac4e54.gif

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

SOURCE: Front climate control blower only works on high speed.

Replace your blower motor resistor
Resistor located under dash on passenger side in screwed into blower housing. May be able to be repaired. Requires soldering a small piece of "unmelted solder" across where the old fusible link was. look carefully at resistor. Or else just replace. Buy new. Junkyard resistor likely to be as bad as yours.

most of the time the resistor is located downwind of the blower motor so it should be not to fao from the blower motor in the right rear of the van behind the quater trim panel which is the hvac unit is located

Fan control knob on a/c and heater will only run on high speed. 2003 dodge mini van


I replaced the fan module under the glovebox on my 2005 Town & Country last night. Mine would not shut off at all with key on. It only blew on high no matter where I set the switch. Mine also had the climate control which makes a difference. If it is not the auto climate control it is usually the blower resistor if the other fan speed selections don't blow at all except on high.

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.
