Actually, I changed the resister last week and it worked but eventually stopped working one speed at a time until nothing
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
are you still there?
Dodge Mechanic: xsvector, Auto Mechanic replied 10 months ago

so are you getting power to the blower motor? have you checked? did the harness get damaged...and burnt pins?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I'm getting power to the motor. Where are there burnt pins?
Dodge Mechanic: xsvector, Auto Mechanic replied 10 months ago

well if your getting power to the man motor and the blower fan is inop...then the blower motor has failed... pins in the conector to the resistor and the blower motor...look in the plug end for burnt or melted connections

The resistor is new and looks to be in good condition. It worked fine for a few days after I put it in. I'll put in a new one (they're cheap) and let you know what happens.
Dodge Mechanic: xsvector, Auto Mechanic replied 10 months ago

a test light or volt meter will help diagnose... if the blower motor has voltage going to it and its not running its bad...

Isn't it possible that the resistor went bad again? And if so- what's causing it to go bad?
Dodge Mechanic: xsvector, Auto Mechanic replied 10 months ago

well it is possible but you stated you have voltage to the blower motor..if there is power to the blower motor and its inop then its bad... but blower motors and resistors are very common to fail...and i have had terrible luck with aftermarket resistors from discount parts stores

Dodge Mechanic: xsvector, Auto Mechanic replied 10 months ago

and a bad harness and a bad blower motor will short out a new resistor..thats why most shops recomend replacing both at the same time

OK. I'll try replacing both. Thanks
