Question about 1996 Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

Up until last week the heater/ac was working fine. Then all of a sudden the blower isn't coming on at all. No defrost or anything. It's not the blower motor, took it out today, hotwired it and it works fine. What next?

Check your blower resistor, this is a common failure point.
It is located just downstream of the blower fan.

You can verify that you have ground at alternating terminals on the resistor connector as you turn the fan switch;
PIn 5 = low, Pin 1 = Medium 1, Ping 2 = Medium 2, Pin 4 = High.
(pin 3 will not have ground when disconnected, as it is the output wire that goes to the blower fan)

Car stalls when ac or defrost on


Sounds like the compressor is dragging the engine down. The compressor runs in ac and defrost mode. You might try unplugging the compressor to verify.

I'm assuming you mean the fan only works on high. If that's the case the blower motor resistor is bad. When the fan switch is on high it puts a full 12Volts to the blower motor. When you have the switch in any other possition, the voltage is routed through the resistor and reduced thus making the motor run slower.

I would suggest changing the control head. You should be able to source a used unit from a local salvage yard.

Heater core or blower motor?


Sounds like your blower motor , you heater core is a non mechanical part and if it were the issue you are correct in thinking you would see fluid on the floor or mist on the windshield.

Blower for AC/Heater stopped working


if you can reach the blower motor, it could be a worn out carbon brush of the blower motor. if they are, buy a set of carbon brush, learn how to replace them and it would be back running in no time. by the way, when you pull out the carbon brush holder, make sure you dont interchange the position. you can put them back wards and what would happen is the rotation will be reversed. either you reversed the carbon brush holder or just simply interchange the wires that are coming to the motor. i hope i was able to help...
