Very common for switch to fail and take resistor with it. Recommend testing switch with ohmmeter to make sure it makes only one connection per setting. Let me know if you have questions.

    manual shows 5 speed settings and a resistor pack with 4 resistors. Conventional design. Is that not what you have? Even if the switch is digital, it should have continuity to one of the five terminals for each setting.

    Hi Jeff, my car is a nightmare ! So far 3 different resistors, 2 of them even with the power off at control panel the blower keeps running at high speed with a A/C running sound or re-circulating mode. Took out the HVAC control panel and tested all connections with ohmmeter and all checked out fine. 3rd resistor was completely opposite, no blower motor at all. Fuses are good, the resistor in now at least blows warm air but only on high speed with no controls. Blower motor relay was swapped out and works fine with full amps. None of the factory resets work on the control panel, after is recycles itself it goes back to high speed blower motor and to the floor setting. Don't know where to go from here. I am leaning to a short but everything tests out fine with meter. I have only had this car for 5 weeks. One thing everyone needs to make a point of telling any car owner with a inside cabin air filter is to check that often. Mine was completely clogged with pine needles so there was no air flow on that part of it. Email me if you have any other suggestions please. peachy3@centurytel.net Really pe-od in Wisconsin where we need heat !

My front air does not blow out (it works in the back). I changed the blower relay in the fuse box next to the battery and put in a new blower fan under the glove box but it still does not blow air out in...


Have you replaced the blower motor resistor? It's located behind the passenger-side in-dash glove box. That's what allows you to control the fan speed.

2001 Chrysler Town & Country air conditioner/heater blows on high only. We have replaced the front blower relay and it still doesn't work. The back blower is the same.


THE REASON THE BLOWER ONLY WORKA ON HIGH IS BECAUSE OF SOMETHING CALLED THE BLOWER MOTOR RESISTOR. THIS IS A BLOCK WITH ABOUT THREE DIFFERENT RESISTORS ON IT WHICH CONTROL THE AMOUNT OF VOLTAGE THAT REACHES THE BLOWER MOTOR THUS GIVING YOU YOUR DIFFERENT SPEEDS.
THIS BLOCK IS USUALLY LOACATED BEHIND THE GLOVE BOX AND IS BOLTED TO THE HEATER HOUSING.

Blower motor stuck on high! 2001 town &country 3.8 lxi. unpluged blower control module and blower motor still stuck on high. any ideas? thanks ED


your blower resister is bad and you need to replace it.......heres how,The glove box can be lowered all the way out of the way just by pulling in the sides so the rubber stoppers come out toward you. The sides bend easily to allow that.

The glove box being out reveals the resistor in the heating duct right in front of you. Just remove the two sets of wires and two bolts (10mm socket, I think) and the resistor pack slides right out. Then bolt in the new one an plug the wires back in (they only fit in one way). Fold the glove box back up and press the stops in to get them back in place and you are done.

The resistor pack only cost $12 and change at my dealer. It is part number 1-04885583AB which was a replacement for the same number with AA at the end, so I’m guessing they had a lot of trouble with the AAs and so made a better AB.

Last Winter my heater blower fan worked only on High. I changed the front heater/AC blower resistor pack and was surprised at how easy it is, but I had to figure it out for myself since my Dealer's parts guy was no help as to where the part lived and my Haynes manual was just plain wrong. This was on a 2001 T+C. I'd be very surprised if the 2001 Caravan was any different. Don't know what other year vans would be the same. I do know some earlier generations had this resistor under the hood and Haynes had is with the blower sort of behind the instrument cluster.

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.

2001 Town and Country has only high speed fan both front and back fans. Connector to fan has 12v only on one of the 6 leads. Grounding the lead with the 12v on it turns fan on high speed. Where is...


if the blower only blows on high then it is you blower motor resistor that is located behind the glove box it has two screws that hold it in place

2001 tahoe front heater not working, rear heater blows warm air


I have the same problem with my 2001 Tahoe. The front blower is working, its blowing strong, but its cold air even with the temp setting as high as it can get. The rear blows hot air. The engine temp guage is at about 210ish which is close to being normal (220). I just replaced the thermostate a few months ago, I don't know if its bad again, or it I deluted the antifreeze too much and it frooze the heater core, or if the heater core just went bad. Any one know what the cause could be?

Front vents don't want to blow air - new battery


Changing the blower motor resistor will solve the problem of the unchanging fan speeds and the blower motor having power when the ignition is turned to the off position. Beware that there are three different kinds of blower motor resistors. There is a manual, automatic, and a digital that in appearance is greatly different from the first two. The blower motor resistor is located on the passenger side below and behind the glove box. The kick-plate under the glove box will need to be removed by two screws and wha-la, behold is the motor and resistor.

Inside fan has just stopped working


It could mean a new fan,but most systemes use a blower motor resistor to control the speeds of the fan which could have died and is lockated in the air box for climait control.
