Question about 2000 Jeep Cherokee

2 Answers

A/C Blower I have a 2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport(4 door) Had to add refrigerant last summer, again in May this year. Blower stopped a couple weeks ago. This is our winter ride so it mostly sits in the driveway. Air smells stale, also. Can you guys give me a run down? I am good with tools but not an advanced mechanic. Illustrations are the best thing for me. Thanks, AKLING

Blower motor is easy. Under glove box, three or four bolts.

If the drain hole for the A/C condensation gets plugged, it build up and smell stale due to rotten debris. This could also hurt your A/C evaporator core and make eventually even make it leak.

If the water builds up, then it could get in your blower motor as well and cause problems there.

Take the blower motor out and test it by hooking leads from it to your battery. Have a firm grip on it b/c it'll be a squirrel cage blower and it'll want to twist out of your hands if it decides to work.

Take some dye and inject it into your A/C system to trace the leak. I found dye leaking into my floorboard which told me the drain hole was not only plugged but also that the evap core was leaking.

there is a blower motor resister. it creates a lot of heat sometimes melting the electrical plug. check the plug for signs of melting and check the resister for deformation. Both parts can be purchased at rockauto.com

your fan motor needs to be replaced chances are it doesn't spin free and due to a sudden vibration it will work on it's own. when you have this replaced i would also change the reostat.

Hi Check the termial block wireing going into the blower resister as the power wire is a small gauge( too small in my estimation) for the load it carrys and gets very hot at the terminal block. Check to see if wire and block are burned. There is a repaire kit for this from Chysler.--$30.00
I had the same problem-- Use a jumper wire form the blower back past the resister to the power wire(red I think) to see if the blower starts up when its in one of its down sessions.
