Question about 2004 Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

2004 dakota - blower motor quites. I replaced the resistor twice. then the motor and resistor. The "blower motor common driver" ( No. 2 wire) connect keeps heating up and melting. The last time I bought both motor and resistor from a dodge dealer. The first two times the wires justed heated up and melted at the No 2 connection. The last time I heard like a "arching" and when I took the resistor out I could see it was starting to melt.

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)

Hvac fan only works in high speed 2004 dodge dakota


This is definitely the Blower Motor Resistor located near the Blower Motor. It is defined with 3-4 wires going into it. It is easy to remove and replace. Purchase the part at the auto parts store versus at the dealer to save you a lot of money.

Blower motor resistor on '04 Dakota 4.7L V8. Second time this has happened, short out? Blower only works on lower levels, not on high.


Has the blower motor been replaced as well. If you put one resistor on, and it goes bad again, the motor is pulling too many amps and burning it up.

Replace your resistor if you haven't already. I had the same issue with mine, it only worked on high.
