Question about 1996 Dodge Dakota
Try a new mopar fan resistor that is on the passenger side of the firewall, held in by two screws. if you take it out of the firewall you will see that one of the coil wires has melted/broken like a light bulb filament.
they are around $12.00 new .
you only need to unhook your car battery-losen the two screws-replace the wires in the same position on the new resistor- remount it back into the firewall. rehook the battery.
poor connections are common due to rust-corrosion on the five wires. baking powder and water mix on the connections. clean and coat with battery terminal sparay.

On a 2003 dakota, the resistor is located under the passenger side dash, near the glove box.

I'm not sure about your 2003 but I've just recently purchased a 96 and it has a terminal block mounted to the firewall on the passenger side. This block has about 6 yo 8 wires going to it and one of the wires goes to the blower motor. On this truck the wire is black with a yellow stripe, if I wiggle this wire it sparks at the terminal block and the blower motor works. I think all that this block is, is just a grounding block. I had a similar problem with my dad's chevy pickup and the ground wire to it was burnt. It mounted in the same place this dodge does. I just replaced the wire and it worked fine. Hope this helps and doesn't come too late.

I had a 1991 with the same problem. I ended up just bypassing the factory switch and dealing with high or off wit a standard toggle switch. not thebest solution it would get hot but it got me by.
