Study from in the engine area to see if you have any chance of pulling from there if not then you will need to get under the dash in the area of the motors. From the engine compartment you will be able to see where the motor is so you can pull the cover in that area inside. Good Luck those can be a challenge in some vehicles.

Where is the heater resistor on a 2005 dodge dakota? Behind glove box?

should be just above the blower motor. You will need to remove the glove box door to gain access.

2001 dodge dakota keeps burning up blower motor resistors and I have changed the blower motor would it be a bad ground and where do I look? Truck has a few other electrical problems

Check the alternator output voltage. It sounds like the voltage regulator is bad. A bad ground would not complete the circuit so no fan at all or a slow turning fan due to no or low voltage. A bad ground will not burn up the speed resistor

My blower motor on my 2000 Dodge Dakota does not work sometimes. On occassion if I bang the under side of the passenger side dash board it will work. I have changed the relay under the hood and still no...

There is a resistor in the box that controls fan speed. That resistor can melt the wires making the circuit.
My 94 Dakota has this resistor on the firewall. Yours may be under the dash.
You may also have a faulty fan switch. It is also possible to have problems with the brushes inside the motor.

I have a 2003 Dodge Dakota the ac blower motor quit working. I found burnt wires up under where the glove box is close to the blower motor. Looks life going to some type of module. How do I fix the blower...

Those wires are likely going to blower resistor. Try replacing the blower resistor, and replace connectors on wires to it from blower motor. You just might get lucky. (blower resistor is what regulates blower speeds)

Hi ya, i just inquired about my blower motor, is the relay and switches and everything under the dash or under the hood,

In the Dodge Dakota the blower motor resistor is located under the hood, on the right side firewall.

Dodge Dakota Blower Motor Resistor Location:


Dodge Dakota with a complaint of no blower operation. After unplugging the harness connector and removing the two screws, you could remove and examine the resistor coils for damage. The heat and subsequent rust damage are clearly visible in the picture below.

Blower motor wont come on

Replace the blower resistor. The control head provides a ground circuit through the resistor block which reduces current flow to the blower motor which in turn gives you the different blower speeds.

1997 Dodge Dakota 2WD with A/C. 135000 miles. Blower fan stopped working after a period of working intermittently. How do I replace it? It seems to be buried behind the dash and the ventilation air...

Wait, before you change that blower motor try replacing the blower motor resistor.It is located on the fire wall on the passanger side, under the hood. Should cost about 10 to 12 dollars and take about five minutes.Dakota's seem to go through these regularly.
