Question about Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

My 2002 Dodge dakota King cab 4.7 litre V8 ac/heater fan quit on me yesterday. I get an ac light when the ac button is selected and a little residual air flow when in motion but the blower motor rotary switch will not turn on the blower at any of the speed settings (low/med/high). I have checked the ac 10amp fuse in the fuse box under the hood and it is fine. I am looking for advice on a trouble shooting sequence before I have to take it to the dealership. Guess the first thing would be to purchase the Hayes Thank you in advance.

Look for a plastic black plate of rectangular shape. Thics could be under the hood on the pass. side firewall or under the dash on the pass. side. It will be attached to the ac/Heater box with to 5/16 hex head screws. The plate will have four push terminals connected to it by a singular connector plug. This is your blower resistor and controls the # 2 3 4 speeds from the switch. They go without notice. take it out and look for signs of burnt or melted coils.

Testimonial: "Excellent advice....found the terminals and cannon plug burnt up. Turned out it was high voltage from the motor that burnt the coils so replaced motor"

99 dodge dakota has gas smell in cab when heater or ac is on

sounds like you need to look through the engine bay and see if your fuel lines are wet anywhere!! There might be a possibilty that you have a leak around the gas tank so jus crawl under the trunk and look to see if it has any kind of wetness around the tank or hoses coming out of the tank!!
