    i have an 03 caravan that i have blower motor issues with. every so often, i have to pull it out and lube it. it tends to seize up and i bang on the cover to get it started again. when it stops, it will smell like electrical burning. when i lube it, it runs well for a year or two. lately, it's been squealing a bit, time to pull it again.

2003 Dodge Caravan SE Question, Burning rubber/plastic smell when i turn on heat?

I have had this same exact issue. Heat in front would only work on high, after a while started squealing a bit, now it doesn't work in front at all. I still have heat in the back.

I haven't had a chance to fix it yet, but when I do (soon) I will post. In shop at the moment replacing a bent flywheel on the transmission.

Replace blower motor 2005 Grand Caravan

It is the turn signal/wiper switch right there on the steering column.
It is called the multifunction switch.There are three phillips screws
from the bottom of the steering column shroud to remove then pop the
shroud off.There is one small electrical connector on the switch and
two more phillips screws that hold it to the steering column.It is a
very quick and easy job.

Smell in my caravn

it may be a coolant leak in your heater core, but coolant has more of a sweet smell than a fishy one, and you would notice a dampness on the passenger side floormat. it is probably just a mold in the air filter of the blower motor and needs replaced
