Remove the two screws holding the resistor in the heater box to remove the resistor. If there is power there, you will need to get to the motor itself to check for power. All Replacement brand items are backed by 1-year, unlimited-mileage warranty. Show them this thread and have them work from this. However, if shutting the van off fixes it every time, then I'd definitely be thinking 'puter problem. Get an aftermarket motor and installed it in the original housing with the original squirrel cage.
Intermittent faults are so hard to debug. Many views could be from search engines and not from an actual person. One day when I stopped in the unit was magically there but I never received a call. I've been fighting this all summer on our 2008 Touring, works great until about 45-60 minutes into a trip sometimes less. If you have no power go back and check the fuses. Outside Temps above 90 degree F. Remove the wire from the old resistor, pull out the old resistor held in by clips in the device.
Did it again just now. . Just replace on my 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport 3. Randomly, the Front Blower Motor will stop moving cold air. An abundance of water on the garage floor tells me the drain is free. Is it an easy change or does the whole dashboard need to be removed? Outside Temps above 90 degree F.
. When you say front doesn't work when back does, did you mean but instead? The dealership is stumped they saw it happen as the vehicle was taken there while it was doing this and they are trying hard to find the issue. Will update again when all this is done and I hope this fixes the problem for the second time. I will continue to post over time to confirm the fix on this. No matter how many times or position the fan speed knob is moved, the front blower motor fails to respond.
Vehicle is being driven in the city, all systems appear to be normal. Check out some of my other posts if you need more tips and info. The glove box door will fold down exposing the resistor. In my case, the fan is not moving any air at all. Having said that, the symptoms came back at the height of summertime. Igna's system is just dead - a very common but different problem.
Remove the whole glove box to access. I would have liked to put an amp probe on the blower motor to see how much current it was drawing, but I never got to it. If the van didn't have a lifetime warranty, I would have gotten rid of the problem long before now. First make sure you have removed the negative of your batterie. Glad to see they actually have a code for it now. Let me know what you find.
The blower control would randomly change from dash level air to the split flow dash and floor right before it would stop blowing. The blower fan responds to control position, I've confirmed this visually, however no air is moved through the system. That's what I thought too - but in winter the blower could run on high all day long and it doesn't trip. This problem occurs only randomly. Turn van off, restart and everything works again. I don't feel it needs to be a sticky, especially that this thread is easy to find if searched for.
My first thought was air filter, but this particular model did not come with one. I'm not entirely clear about your description of the problem. That has been my experience. Rear Blower follows commanded speeds. That's usually caused by worn motor shaft bearings creating high rotation resistance forcing the motor to draw more current to keep spinning. Posted on Nov 23, 2009 Hi Jim, I will try my best to help you.
Yeah something in there probably. Please wiggle the connection and you will see what I am talking about. The front blower will come on and, if its going to quit, it will cycle off, back on and then off until I restart the van. . It's located inder the dashboard. Thanks, but different generation van 5th vs 3rd. I have been dealing with this issue for over a year.
