Likely your blower motor is drawing too much amperage and overheating the circuit behind it. This can be due to a bad motor or a poor ground to the motor itself.

Spark plugs wire's can they get to hot and start melting from motor?

Newer cars run hot enough under the hood to cause belts, hoses and spark plug wires to break down more quickly than older cars, so yes, plug wires that are old may start to melt, especially if car runs hot or is used in hot climate. Wires should be changed every 3 to 5 years, or even more often in hot climates or high performance use. Use only OEM quality or better wires.

Air blend door actuator

there is an order. (check fuses first, all the time,every time)
1: engine attains 180F temp or more and holds there. all the time hot.
2: the water valve is open fully and actually flows hot water to the core.
the dash temp, lever is a cable to valve, does valve move from min to max, via lever>?
3: blower works, at least on high.
4: then doors, most these cars have blend door motors. and the tests are unique to maker and year,model. the FSM covers this 100%

this system varies by, A/T or M/T tranny, coupe or sedan
and CLIMATE CONTROL options.
the climate control system is complex with 3 motors.
3 damper control motors,
1: Recirc
2: fresh air.
3:MODE (my guess this fails)

to see it , go to and read HVAC section , fresh air delivery systems.

better is THE FSM, as it shows how to test these motors.
step by step.

I have an1988 Chrysler fifth avenue. It has a miss, when you pull up to stop sign or red light it will stall out and die but starts right back up, sometimes back fire through carb if you hold gas throttle...

Check for a vacuum leak under the hood. Most heater and a/c systems rely on vacuum pressure to open and close doors and direct hot and cold air. The vehicle stalling could also be that vacuum leak. Look for a small diameter hard plastic hose. They always seem to dry rot, if it's bad it will fall apart when you move it. Best way to find a leak is to use a 2'-3' piece of water hose. Put one end against your ear to listen for vacuum leaks while the engine is running.

Trouble shooting climate control intermitting blower problem # 5 speed has not been working for about 3 months # 1 2 3 4 speed is now working intermittingly

GMC has an ongiong problem with the blower motor resistor, look under the dash on the passenger side and you will see the blower housing, unplug the wireing harness that feeds it and look at the plug carefully you will see that the third pin from the left has been over heated and is melted a little. the repair is quick and easy go to your local parts store and purchase a new resistor and a replacement wireing plug, you will have to cut the old plug off and splice the new one in, replace the resistor and your done. I would recomend that the wires be and spliced cut one at a time so as to insure that they are put in the right location.

The motor goes bad because leaves and such make their way down and clog it's air intake. Pick up a new one at your local auto parts store if you have to.

It's four screws on the motor housing, located under the glove box (2 screws) and the wiring is harnessed, so no sweat there.

While it's off, reach up into the cavity that feeds it air on the upper left.

You may want to wear a glove. The design on this generation Rodeo is horribly flawed. I pulled a squirrel-sized wad of rotten leaves and pine needles from mine after replacing the motor and resistor twice.

Like drinking a milkshake through a coffee stirrer, you know that's bad for a motor. I clean mine out every fall, before running the heat non-stop all winter.

Climate control to hot or to cold no middle set at 60 and you freeze set at 65 and you will melt

You may be able to find a knowledgeable parts man at the Ford dealership to show you the Temperature sensor you need to replace under the dash. There is also a self-diagnosis code that can be read by a Technician from the digital dash display of the Climate Control. But you need the codes to verify. It is a quick process to diagnose, but getting to the part may be hard. You do have more space in a F350 though.

I had the identical problem with my Lincoln LT (F150) in a drive from New York to Detroit. Thought my shoes would melt with the heat on or freeze without it.

AC fan control in car only works on high. Started with no. 4 not working then 1,2&3 stopped, now only runs on no. 5

This will work, I have done it 3 times!
open glove compartment, squeeze sides so the whole thing tips out. Take a flashlight and look straight ahead, you will see an electrical part, unscrew the 2 bolts, and disconnect the wires. Take it to your dodge dealer, regular parts stores won't have the part. get a new one and put everything back.
this is easier than pumping gas.
