    He wanted to know how to replace the resistor block in the firewall, not the blower..

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

Blower moter does not work on high


I have had to replace my blower motor relay on my 2003 Dodge Caravan twice. I think the blower resistor is is under the hood on the firewall.
But, the relay module is on the inside on the passenager side. Open the glove box. Then pull the hinge tabs so that the glove box door drops all of th eway down. Look into the opening and you will see the relay. The part was about $12 at Autozone and can be replaced in about 5 minutes.
My blower motor would only work on high both times. Quick, simple, easy and inexpensive repair. Once you see the module, you will be amazed at how easy this repair is. The hardest part is finding it behind your glove box.

Have 2001 grand caravan sport 3.3L and the fan switch will only work in the high position,what may be the reason for this? THANKS


sounds like it is the blower fan resistor, there is a wire for every speed of the blower motor. so if a wire burns out, you will loose that speed. the resistor is located behind glove box.

2001 Dodge Grand Caravan heater blower motor not working at all...worker off and on during a cold spell....now not at all ....dealer suggested replacing blower motor and resister...cost $1000....due to the...


The Blower Motor Resistor is located behind the glove box on the dash. Remove the whole glove box to access. The Resistor is mounted against/sort of into the fire wall.
1. Disconnect the negative side of battery.
2. Disconnected the Electrical Connection to the Resistor.
3. Remove the bolts/screws. I believe they have 8mm heads, there should be 2 of them.
4. Replace with new one/Replug electrical connection.
5. Reconnect the negative side last.
6. Test System before putting the glove box back in!
The Blower Motor is easy (compared to $1000) to remove and replace.

2001 caravan fan only blows on high ac/heat both front and rear(dual air)


It is the blower motor resistor located behind the dash glove box. Take the glove box out to access and change. It is mounted on/into the fire wall.
Very easy to access, remove and install a new resistor.
