This is my own question and I wanted to share the solution in case others may have the same problem. I replaced the Interlock Module. Found the part at Sears for about $35. The part is right behind the seat on the right hand side if you are seated. There is a wiring harness coming through the rear wall - some of the wires go to this guy. Maybe this would have been answered if it had not been in the CD category?

2003 Dodge Dakota is stuck on defrost, only blowing hot air. A/C will not turn in, mirror defrost will not turn on. Just replaced blower motor resistor to fix fan not coming on. Fan is working.


Can you measure and VOLTAGE across the resistor?

Here is a GREAT Link (in my estimation):

Yes it's for a DURANGO but the process may help you!

Joe, have you seen THIS link?

Where is the heater resistor on a 2005 dodge dakota? Behind glove box?


should be just above the blower motor. You will need to remove the glove box door to gain access.

2001 dodge dakota keeps burning up blower motor resistors and I have changed the blower motor would it be a bad ground and where do I look? Truck has a few other electrical problems


Check the alternator output voltage. It sounds like the voltage regulator is bad. A bad ground would not complete the circuit so no fan at all or a slow turning fan due to no or low voltage. A bad ground will not burn up the speed resistor

Blower motor wont come on


Replace the blower resistor. The control head provides a ground circuit through the resistor block which reduces current flow to the blower motor which in turn gives you the different blower speeds.

Blower motor resistor on '04 Dakota 4.7L V8. Second time this has happened, short out? Blower only works on lower levels, not on high.


Has the blower motor been replaced as well. If you put one resistor on, and it goes bad again, the motor is pulling too many amps and burning it up.

Fan switch works on only one speed


  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. Pull the front blower motor resistor and its wire harness out of the plenum panel and through the cowl plenum access hole far enough to access the wire harness connector.
  5. Remove the front blower motor resistor from the cowl plenum.
INSTALLATION
  1. Plug the blower motor resistor into the wire harness connector.
  2. Install the blower motor resistor to the cowl plenum panel by feeding the resistor and wire harness back through the cowl plenum access hole.
  3. Install and tighten the two screws that secure the resistor to the HVAC unit Tighten the screws to 2.2 Nm (20 in. lbs.) .

Heater blower switch broken


mine was doing the same, then just quit all together. I went and got a resistor and everything is working again. Pretty easy to replace as well.
