SOURCE: Heater blower motor replacement -1997 Dodge Grand Caravan

Remove the cover plate on the passenger side of the heater box, 3-4 screws.
Unplug the motor assembly, remove 3-4 more screws that hold the motor in place and pull it down from its position. Get an aftermarket motor and installed it in the original housing with the original squirrel cage.
Installation is the reverse of removal.

Have you heard of a wiring harness that plugs into the tranny on a 1997 dodge caravan

well I guess one could replace the entire harness , but what I have done is replace the connector ends that attach to transmission , they get old an crack allowing water to enter (splash) and mess up the signals going thru it , its all up to your service guy , and how much time he wants to spend on it , I will say it takes a bit of time to splice all them wires correctly (waterproof like) so it might be less time to replace harness , I don't know ????

The neutal safety switch is probably your culprit. It is on the transmission. Make sure all the electrical wireing connections are good.
