1. Check the fuse. If the fuse is good, and everything else associated with that circut is operating, you've probably got a bad blower motor.

  • 2. The same thing happened to my 93 Dakota today, but it was gradual. First, the lower blower settings stopped working, then it wouldn't work at any setting. The problem was a faulty blower motor resister block. It's a cheap part, $10 @NAPA Item#: ECHBR85. The part is accessed from under the hood on the passenger side against the firewall. It's about 1.5 by 3 inches in size and held on by two 1/4 inch screws. Just remove the five-prong plug and the screws and it comes right out. If it's shot you'll see one or more of the wires burnt out.

3.Sure enough, My 95 Dakota had corrosion on the heater coils making it quit. Thanks to #2 answerer it saved me alot of grief THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!


Similar thing has happened to my 2003 Dakota. Thanks for saving me a dealer charge!

I also had this problem with my 2003 Dakota. Only difference is it just went. No fan settings worked. Also on the 2003 model it is located on the passenger side under the glovebox. Still only a 10 -15 minute fix. Came across a really good link when looking this up and thought i would take the time to share since it save me allot of money on what I thought would be a costly repair. Check the link below for detailed info on this problem.


THANKS!!! To all the people who took the time to share and help me fix this and save hard earned cash.!!


This answer is "spot on" for a 1996 Dodge Dakota V6. I only wish I had checked WikiAnswers BEFORE I bought a very expensive [$300] A/C-Heater control switch. My blower worked intermittently on the Medium and Very High contacts of my control slide switch. When it went out completely, I checked the fusing and found them to be okay, so I thought the switch finally failed. You cannot buy the switch, alone, since it is part of a control system. When I replaced it and my blower STILL did not operate, I thought I had a bad blower and went looking for a wiring diagram on the Net. When I found this answer, I check my firewall and sure enough, I found the nearly burned out contact. Now, I'm off to get a replacement.

First check the fuses. If the fuses are okay I would suspect the switch and plug had a meltdown or the blower motor itself is shot. If it was the blower speed resistor that was shot you would still have high speed.

2003 Dodge Dakota HeaterAC blower has stopped working what is the problem?

One common problem is the resistor, they like to get to hot and melt. The resistor is located under the passenger side glove compartment, by the fan motor. There should be two screws holding the resistor in place. Unscrew the resistor then unplug it from the wire harness. If it looks burnt or is melted, then chances are this is the problem. Plug in the new resistor and screw it back in place. It is a cheap fix and is easily accomplished.
