I have a 2001 Dodge Dakota and my Blower moter resiter went last year, in my 2001 it's located under the passenger side dashboard. there are 4 screws and it basically comes out, there's a blower fan and it looks like part of the fan, that's it. I replaced mines twice within 6 years apart mines is a 2001 Dodge Durango, V-8, they share the same chassic and parts. Mines also is located under the passenger side dashoard. The blower motor is to the far right side and the resistor is just to the left side of the blower by about 12 inches or so. It's held in by just 2 small bolts and will just fall right down if they are removed, as simple as that. Check your resistor first as that seems to be the weak link and seems to go sooner. The resistor is only a $12.00 part at the dealer and you can just unplug the connector from your old one (before taking it out) and just hold the new one and plug in the connector to see if that was the problem. I took out my blower, just to find out it was my resistor. If you know about how to check for continuity, there should be continuity at all the wire connecters on the resistor itself. If not, it's your resistor. I do use the complete factory repair manual on mines($100.+) so that's how I got all my info and saved money by not just replaceing my blower motor when it wasn't blowing. The Dodge dealer also told me it is a very comon part to go(blow out) but during the 2 times I changed it within about 8 years now, the price is still a $12.00 item at the dealer because it is a dealer part here in Hawaii. If it's the blower, disconnect the wire connector from it and use some connectors and jump an external 12 volts to it, and if it runs your blower motor is ok. So if the resistor and blower is OK, then the wire harness is the next thing before getting carried away with the switch on the dash board. I hope you checked all your fuses before anything else also. Hope you problem is resolved...Aloha

Under the dash below glove box. You will see the blower motor and it's to the left of it. You will see a wire harness going to it.

I belive it is located down under the dash on the passenger side. the older dakotas where mounted on the passenger side of the fire wall. a blower motor resister is usually located close to the actual blower motor.
