SOURCE: 7 wire harness going to blower motor resistor

There is an updated resistor/connector package. Very expensive from GM, try your local NAPA or other parts supplier for a replacement

SOURCE: Battery not charging, new alternator, checked

A melted plug typically means a loose connection. Maybe one of the pins in the connector got loose and the poor connection created heat. If there are only a couple of wires to the plug and harness I would cut out the plugs and use good solderless connectors to repair. I wil be a lot less expensive than a new harness. If it is just damage to the plug going to the alt you can get replacements for them.

SOURCE: vss wiring is melted together with other wires at

its better to route the new wires so they do not touch the manifold again instead of trying to insulate them, zip tie them out of the way

SOURCE: Blower motor resistor connector burned resistor

You'll have to get the connector from an auto salvage yard. I doubt you'll wants to spend all the money or do all the work involved in changing a wiring harness.
When you get the connector get is with as much wire as possible on it. You can then use **** connectors to splice the salvaged connector in where you cut the old one out. Do it one wire at a time and use sealing or weather proof connectors.

Blower Motor will not work when resister is installed.

Check the contact connection on the connector, many times these overheat and melt the surrounding plastic. You may need to replace the connector wire harness.

Blower fan only runs in positions 1-3, not on 4; relay or resistor?

Remove blower motor resistor and check to see if it discolored or melted. if so then replace blower motor resistor, also blower motor speeds 1-4 go through resistor, 5 goes direct from switch to blower motor. check wire harness connector at resistor, it should have six wires five power wires that corralate with the five settings on switch, so in each switch setting one wire should have power. the sixth wire is the ground. also harness connector to resistor it may be melted, if so go to dealer with vin number and get new harness connector with resistor.
I hope this helped.

2002 Durango blower motor resistor wiring harness is burnt & the insulation is melted on 2 wires. Is there a repair for the harness plug?

This proble is very , very common on these, you will need to replace the resistor and wiring. the dealer sells the kit and resistor, the wiring kit comes with the connector and a bag of wires with connector on the wires, theres about 12 wires you will use the correct gauge wire thats in the truck and the rest keep for spares, you will need to put it together which is not hard to do, they will give you connectors and heat shrink in this kit, i always get it from the dealer, i have used aftermarket resistors and have had problems with brunning again, so i would use dealer parts. i think the whole setup was about 100.00, the wirg is the most costly. when repairing cut wiring back on wire thats good to remove brunt wires, dont try to disconnect the connect to avoid breaking apart, just unbolt resistor and pull out this way you can use old connector as a guide to put new one together, good day,

Heater fan only works on high

The blower resistor needs to be replaced. The blower motor resistor is located in the passenger foot well, it is mounted inside the heater case near the firewall and the blower motor. This is an extremely common problem with these vehicles, and the problem is in the wiring connector that goes to the resistor module. The blower motor draws current through the resistor pack at an excessive rate and causes the wiring terminals at the resistor pack to melt and loose connection. The most effective and permanent fix to this problem is to replace the connector end, the blower motor, AND the blower motor resistor. You can usually get away with just repairing the wiring at the resistor module, however it is extremely likely that the problem will repeat itself in the future. The connector ends are available at your local GM dealership, are relatively inexpensive, and they come in a package that contains the connector pigtail and heat-shrink **** connectors, however to maximize model coverage they manufacture the pigtail so that all of the wires are white. This means that your wire colors will not match up, and you will need to snip and crimp each wire separately as to avoid confusing their positions in the connector and accidentally wiring the resistor pack incorrectly. Inspect the resistor module for melted terminals as well, usually the module needs to be replaced because of melting damage. Should you choose NOT to replace the blower motor, the system will likely work in all speeds after repairing the connector, but you are taking your own risk towards the problem happening again. Good luck

Battery not charging, new alternator, checked connections, checked fuses, alternator harness was melted at the end where it plugs into the main harness

Sounds like your blower motor resister went out on your lower speeds have it checked if possible. This is a common problem on GM models.

Hummer H3 air condition blower will not come on - can feel cold air - but the fan will not come on - even when putting on the different fan speeds - could it be the fuses?

I just fixed this exact problem in my 06 H3. It turned out to be the resistor pack in the blower motor. I had to replace the resistor(it shorted) and the small harness that spiders over the blower motor assembly(it melted). It was an easy fix and only about $50 in parts that you can order form any GM brand dealership. Check out the link and and look at parts #3 and #4. Good luck!

AC Fan Motor Goes Off and On

There is a wire connector repair kit available at your local dealer. You may also need to replace the resistor module due to the connector being melted in the cavity. The heat is a result of a loose connection (high resistance) that eventually melts the connector to the module. Hope this helps.
