So i reconnected the plug from the fan to the resistor and tried it again, but no spinning. If not okay, replace the inoperative blower motor resistor. However, with the advice from my mechanic I started to search online for better prices. Gray Can anyone help me locate and provide directions on replacing the Thermal Cutoff Fuse on my 2005 Grand Caravan with auto temp control? It is a 20A fuse and is yellow in color…. The service tip also gave some advice on checking for 12 volts at the resistor power supply which I did.
We have tested the relays and fuses. I was driving down the road and it just stopped completely. As far as pinching that wire harness goes that was quite simple. The blower fan stop today, the rear fan still work with both the front and rear controls. I have read that on a 2005 Grand Caravan that it is next to the blower in the glove box area.
When it comes to performance and long lasting service consumers choose the innovation that can be found in every Chrysler vehicle. Now I read there is a resister module under the hood on the passenger side. If anyone has run into this, I would appreciate any tips, or if you know how many amps the blower should draw would be a big help. I've read several reports of the control panel connector melting creating problems. After cleaning up both connector and socket and applying some Die-electric grease to prevent it from happen again, the fan now works correctly! Here is some more pointers.
Are you sure it is the Blower? I am new to this forum. Well, like I say, I'm no pro and I couldn't find anywhere on the net that discussed this in any length. Something else to keep in mind. Mine stopped working around 90k miles and I had never replaced the filter. Mine blew the resistor 3 times replaced the motor and no more problems in 3 years it is an 01. Unfortunately, my problem may be on the power side of the wiring.
If you're burning up Resistor Blocks over and over, save yourselves headaches and money by replacing the Resistor Block, Blower Motor and Relay all at the same time. I can't figure it out? I would have to let the vehicle warm up for a long amount of time to defog the windshield. I caught it just in time, and no major damage. I am trying to replace the blower motor and am having a heck of a time with the bolt that is in the back, up against the floorboard. Tried everything I could think of for that last bolt against the firewall. Bring your glove box up, push the side in. The blower in the back seems to work just fine.
Don't use too hot of light under the dash. Also I have gone to the Dodge web site and looked for a schematic for my van, but do not see one in the manual. I don't see why you can just loosen the lower housing, then the blower, lift up on the blower and slip off the cage. We have no plans to replace the screw. A failed blower motor resistor can cause issues with the operation of the entire heating and air conditioning system.
Knowing that this was not an air-tight housing, it didn't worry me the least bit. Ok I had the same problem except the fuse didn't open, the resistor would burn open and I would only have the blower on high. There are two screws holding the resistor into the air duct. Do you still have a copy of the letter. Using an ohmmeter, check for continuity between all of the blower motor resistor terminals. One screw remained, after taking out two screws.
You do have to slip the wire harness through the hole before doing this. Especially, that one screw in the back. Come on in here to your glove box, open it up. I probably should have looked into that better. Has anyone run into the front blower resistor going bad over and over? As far as the hard to get to screw in the back it is indeed a major fuss.
