Disconnect the battery. airbags won't deploy if there's no battery. and you dont have to worry about your airbags - the sensor to deploy them is in the front bumper of your car.

CAUTION On vehicles equipped with airbags, disable the airbag system before attempting any steering wheel, steering column, or instrument panel component diagnosis or service. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative (ground) cable, then wait two minutes for the airbag system capacitor to discharge before performing further diagnosis or service. This is the only sure way to disable the airbag system. Failure to take the proper precautions could result in an accidental airbag deployment, possible personal injury or death.

NOTE The blower motor is located on the passenger side of the vehicle under the instrument panel. The blower motor can be removed from the vehicle without having to remove the HVAC housing.
  1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
  2. Disconnect the wire harness connector from the blower motor.
  3. Remove the three screws that secure the blower motor to the HVAC housing.
  4. Remove the blower motor from the HVAC housing by rotating and tilting the blower motor as needed for clearance.

Have lost fan to heatr and ac...where is the fuse box or diagram?


1. Does the Blower work on High (or #4) only? If so then it is not the Front Blower Motor or the Relay that is bad, but it is the Resistor which is located behind the Glove box. Follow step #a. below and take out the Glove Box to access. It has 3 to 4 wires going into it. The wiring path is: Switches to the Resistor and then to the Motor.
2. The Front Blower Motor Relay is located in the IPM - Fuse and Relay Center. It is located in a box within the engine compartment. However: (restated) IF the Blower does only work on High then this Relay is good and you should only replace the Resistor Only. The Identification and Location of the Relays and Fuses is located on the back side (inside) of the IPM cover. Remove the cover. The Front Blower Motor Relay is the same Type (size and shape) as several other Relays in the panel. Switch out the Front Blower Motor Relay with a non-engine operation Relay for a function that you know works. Recheck the operations of both functions. If the Front Blower Relay now works and the other function now does not work, it was the Relay was bad and needs to be replaced.
a. Disconnect the Negative Cable from the Battery and wait at least two (2) minutes to deactivate the Airbag Sensors.
b. Remove the Glove Box.
c. Disconnect the Electrical Connection.
d. Unbolt/Unscrew the bolts/metal screws and remove the Resistor.
Installation is reverse of above.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Your blower speed resistor has gone bad and needs to be replaced. You can pick one up at Auto Zone or Parts Source with the step by step instructions to getting the resistor replaced with common tools.

It is located under the glove box, way in the back of the passenger foot area. You'll need to remove 2 screws with a 7mm socket, and remove the plastic cover that covers the blower motor and another component box that I think controls the passenger airbag. After removing the plastic cover you'll need to side that passenger airbag module to the right so it pop off its mounting bracket and move it out of the way. That will give a better view of the blower motor. I highly recommend you also remove the blower motor itself because the Blower Motor Resistor is located behind it. I think you'll need a 5mm or 5.5mm socket to remove the 3 screws that hold in place the blower motor and 2 more screws for the Blower Motor Resistor... It's a cramped location to work in but if you have all the tools and enough lighting then it shouldn't take more than 30-60 minutes to do. The Blower Motor Resistor costs about $19-$25. Good luck

Durango vent blower fan


The blower motor resistors are known for going bad. Usually its because the blower starts drawing too much current. What I would recommend doing if you can and have the tools, is to check the blower motor connector to make sure 12 volts is present. If so than I would recommend replacing the blower motor resistor. Then if the same issue ever happens again and the blower motor resistor is bad again, you will need to replace the blower motor and the blower resistor as the final repair.
Here is some info about testing the resistor using a multimeter it you have one:

DIAGNOSIS AND TESTING- BLOWER MOTOR RESISTOR WARNING: ON VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AIRBAGS, DISABLE THE AIRBAG SYSTEM BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY STEERING WHEEL, STEERING COLUMN, OR INSTRUMENT PANEL COMPONENT DIAGNOSIS OR SERVICE. DISCONNECT AND ISOLATE THE BATTERY NEGATIVE (GROUND) CABLE, THEN WAIT TWO MINUTES FOR THE AIRBAG SYSTEM CAPACITOR TO DISCHARGE BEFORE PERFORMING FURTHER DIAGNOSIS OR SERVICE. FAILURE TO TAKE THE PROPER PRECAUTIONS COULD RESULT IN ACCIDENTAL AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT AND POSSIBLE PERSONAL INJURY.
Both the front blower motor resistor and the optional rear heater-A/C unit blower motor resistor can be diagnosed using the procedure that follows. For circuit descriptions and diagrams, refer to Air Conditioning/Heater in Group 8W - Wiring Diagrams.
  1. Disconnect and isolate the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect the wire harness connector from the blower motor resistor block.
  3. Check for continuity between each of the blower motor switch input terminals of the resistor and the resistor output terminal. In each case there should be continuity. If OK, repair the wire harness circuits between the blower motor switch and the blower motor resistor block or blower motor as required. If not OK, replace the faulty blower motor resistor block.
Here is the information on replacing the resistor:

REMOVAL
  1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
  2. From the passenger foot well area, remove the two hex screws used to secure the blower motor resistor.
  3. Unplug the front blower motor resistor from the wire harness connector.
  4. Remove the front blower motor resistor from the HVAC unit.
Here is an exploded view of the HVAC box. The resistor is #63 in the picture and the actual part may appear slightly different:

If any issues such as no voltage at blower connector or damaged or melted connector at the resistor then let me know.

Blower fan only works on high speed


Its the blower resistor. I couldn't get the pictures in sorry. Rob

RESISTOR-BLOWER MOTOR
DESCRIPTION
The blower motor resistor is mounted to the HVAC air
inlet housing, directly behind the glove box. The
blower motor resistor consists of a molded plastic
mounting plate (1) with an integral wire connector
receptacle (2). Concealed behind the mounting plate
are coiled resistor wires contained within a ceramic
heat sink (3). The blower motor resistor is accessed
for service by removing the glove box from the instrument
panel.
The blower motor resistor is accessed for service by
removing the glove box from the instrument panel.
OPERATION
The blower motor resistor is connected to the vehicle electrical system through a dedicated wire lead and connector
of the HVAC wire harness. The blower motor resistor has multiple resistor wires, each of which will reduce the
current flow through the blower motor to change the blower motor speed.
The blower motor control in the MTC heating-A/C system directs the ground path for the blower motor through the
correct resistor wire to obtain the selected speed. With the blower motor control in the lowest speed position, the
ground path for the blower motor is applied through all of the resistor wires. Each higher speed selected with the
blower motor control applies the blower motor ground path through fewer of the resistor wires, increasing the blower
motor speed.
The blower motor resistor cannot be adjusted or repaired and, if faulty or damaged (such as a cracked ceramic heat
sink), it must be replaced.

DIAGNOSIS AND TESTING
BLOWER MOTOR RESISTOR
WARNING: On vehicles equipped with airbags, disable the airbag system before attempting any steering
wheel, steering column, or instrument panel component diagnosis or service. Disconnect and isolate the
negative battery (ground) cable, then wait two minutes for the airbag system capacitor to discharge before
performing further diagnosis or service. This is the only sure way to disable the airbag system. Failure to
take the proper precautions could result in accidental airbag deployment and possible personal injury or
death.
NOTE: For circuit descriptions and diagrams, refer to the appropriate wiring information. The wiring information
includes wiring diagrams, proper wire and connector repair procedures, further details on wire harness
routing and retention, as well as pin-out and location views for the various wire harness connectors,
splices and grounds.
1. Disconnect and isolate the negative battery cable.
2. Disconnect the wire harness connector from the blower motor resistor (Refer to 24 - HEATING & AIR CONDITIONING/
CONTROLS/RESISTOR-BLOWER MOTOR - REMOVAL).
24 - 138 CONTROLS ND
3. Using an ohmmeter, check for continuity between all of the blower motor resistor terminals. In each case there
should be continuity. If OK, repair the wire harness circuits between the blower motor switch and the blower
motor resistor or blower motor as required. If not OK, replace the faulty blower motor resistor.
REMOVAL
WARNING: On vehicles equipped with airbags, disable the airbag system before attempting any steering
wheel, steering column, or instrument panel component diagnosis or service. Disconnect and isolate the
