Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site.

Is there a ground at any of the connections to the resistor when different speeds are selected on the blower switch?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
No all power wires green
Expert:  Super Mechanic replied 5 months ago.

Just to be sure, (it does say Ford in the make area)

2003 Dodge or Ram Truck RAM 1500

No ground to the blower motor or the resistor?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Ran 1500 03
Expert:  Super Mechanic replied 5 months ago.

I figured that, being Ford didn't make any Rams, lol

So, actually there is no ground connection at the blower motor, (or resistor), correct?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
No their is not

Let me just say that any money that you paid, or if you have a subscription, that money stays in your account until the answers are rated, (positive) regardless of how fast or how long it may take to get finished. You can FOLLOW UP AT ANYTIME, even after rating.

That would be in the switch, (HVAC controller) Please see attached diagram. The ground for the blower is supplied, through the resistor by the switch.

You will want to also see how the connector looks, they sometimes start to melt from the power going through them.

Fan switch or controller switch

The blower motor switch, it is part of the control panel on the dash, thanks

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
But I see ignition switch is burnt also
Expert:  Super Mechanic replied 5 months ago.

That may cause other problems but if the blower motor is getting power, (12v) and no ground, it doesn't involve the ignition switch.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
It was the ignition switch video on you tube
Expert:  Super Mechanic replied 5 months ago.

Good job! Glad to hear that it's fixed, please come again, anytime, thanks
