Question about 2004 Dodge Ram 1500

1 Answer

Blower motor doesn't run

Operation was intermittent, hit a bump and it would start back up. No it doesn't come on. I removed the blower motor and hooked it up to the battery and it ran. The green wire going to the blower moter shows 12.5 volts, This is even with the fan switch off. I grounded the brown/? wire but blower still didn't run. Blower doesn't work on any speed . I've been told if the resister is bad you will still have high speed.

My blow motor for inside the car sometimes comes on and off in my 2003 Chrysler sebring sedan when it wants to


Any motor that uses brushes, sometimes you can peck on it, it may start running, or you might hit a bump and the blower motor takes off. If so, that is a sign of bad brushes and the blower motor needs to be replaced.
Also when problem is ongoing, check the blower motor wiring connector, controls on, for voltage and ground, key on. If good voltage and ground with no blower action, suspect the blower motor.

Blower worked intermittently on 5 hit a bump on/off replaced resistor and pig tail but blower still doesn't work?? what do I need to check now?? grounding??


If blower motor resistor was replaced, make sure all connections are tight and well plugged in. I would supply direct powerr and ground to the blower motor to see if it works. It still sounds like a resistor issue

The heater fan dose not come on some time when driving hit a bump on the road it comes on .


Most likely the blower motor has excessive wear and the brushes which contact the armature are contacting more than one pole at a time, hence the intermittent failure. Hit a bump, or hit the motor, and it'll suddenly come on... Pretty typical really.

My heater blower dosent work uless i hit a bump or something and if i hit a bump it gose back off


This is often caused by a lose cable to your blower motor or your blower could be going bad. You can this by removing the cover underneath the glovebox. This will give you access to the blower and harness.

2001 HYUNDIA SANTE FE BLOWER QUIT WORKING CHECKED FUSES STILL GOOD


If this is the Manual A/C type, there are two common occurances affecting blower operation.
1st, there is intermittent contact in the blower motor brushes. You can check this by locating the blower motor housing under the dash on the Right Hand side (Passenger Side). With the Ignition Key in the "ON" position, blower switch on "HIGH" firmly slap the housing with your hand. If the motor starts working, there's your problem. If it doesn't, rig up a 12 volt test light bulb and back-probe the connector to the blower motor - Does the light bulb turn ON? If so, then the problem is with the blower motor itself. If it DOESN'T turn on, then the problem is elsewhere (blower relay, blower control switch, or wiring to the motor or from the motor to ground.
Go to www.hmaservice.com and register your vehicle by VIN #.. you'll then have access to wiring diagrams, shop manuals, service bulletins, campaigns, illustrations and procedures, etc.
