I just realized on the way to work this morning that the fan in my 2002
Dakota QC only works in the highest setting. I assume this to mean
that I need to replace the fan? Is this correct? I have tried all the
settings, top and bottom, botton and defogger and the fan only works in
the highest setting only. If so, has anyone changed the fan? Is it
difficult to get to? It is in the 20s here in Northern NJ today, and I
cannot take the noise the highest fan setting makes, so I need to fix
this ASAP. Are there any places online I can get a fan cheaper than at
my dealer? Thanks for any and all help you guys can provide me with.
Nope - blower motor resistor block. Look up under the dash, and you should
see it bolted/screwed to the blower motor housing. It's got a wiring
harness running to it with 4 wires. Unplug the connector, unbolt/screw the
pack, and replace it. Fairly simple to do...
Do I need to pull the dash board apart? or will the resister block be
accessable without pulling it off? WHere can I get a replacement
besdides going to the dealer? How much is an approximate cost? Thanks

FYI, this is a common problem; my truck (2001 Dakota) been through two
so far. Third one, if/when it goes, I'll replace myself. FYI, it's
such a simple job that the Chrysler dealer here in the UK hasn't charged
me for installation of either of them! Takes 'em 5 or 10 minutes.
