The Climate switch on this model is a "Resitor Switch" which means the full voltage is setting 4 ... 1-3 reduces the voltage making the blower motor go slower... This seems to be a common problem and the only fix is to rplace the switch... However the run around 125.00... Even though this seems to be a reoccuring problem Dodge does nothing about it except sell you a new switch.... 53K Miles on my 2002 and I am into my 3rd switch now... Don't bother changing the resistor switch because you will rack up too much money in replacing it every 2 months....I have replaced mine 3 x's now at $22.20 a peice from the dealership. The mechanics at Dodge know that this a problem with Stratus' and will tell you to replace the blower and switch, which in time, you will go through this whole process all over again. Chrysler is well aware of the problem and is not willing to do anything about it because of people like us replacing the part a million times & they continue to make money on it. Live with the fact of having heat and a/c on high for the duration of owning this vehichle!
either the blower control switch or the blower motoer needs replacing
The problem is either the blower motor resistor or the blower speed selector switch.
I had the exact same problem with a 1999 Dodge Stratus. I replaced the blower motor resistor twice only to find out that the blower motor itself was the problem. I know others with the same type of car, i.e. Dodge Stratus that had this problem. It turns out that Chrysler must have gotten a bad batch of blower motors form some supplier. I went to the junk yard and got another used blower motor and put that in with another resistor (the second one blew out again) and it worked fine!
Blower motor resistor is bad. It is a little circuit board with resistors on it that changes voltage to the blower motor. When it goes bad, you get full speed only.
Blower switch and connection had a melt down.
Sounds like the wire that goes to the blower that is behind the glove box which you would have to remove then pull the wire off and push back on, that's usually the problem.
replace the blower motor switch
i think it probably because the motor has a ground problem or it has bad brushes and is is drawing to much energy for the resistor
The blower resistor has probably failed. The connecter also likes to fail. They are located under the hood on the large black plastic housing on the passenger side. There are 4 wires in the connecter.
It is the blower resistor. It happened to mine and from what I can tell it is a common problem. Here is a site that helped me it also shows you how to replace it. You can find the part at AM Auto parts. http://www.sparkys-answers.com/2009/01/2002-gmc-envoy-no-low-blower-speeds.html
This is not a complete answer ,butl go to auto zone.com they do.
blower motor resistor is burned out
There is a relay switch on the back of the main selector switch. If this part goes bad many times the blower will either work on high only or will not work at all. Replace this blower switch, more than likely this is the problem.
Under the dash, on the passenger side.
The blower motor resistor pack is bad.
The Blower resistor should be tested which is located near the blower motor, the resistor is probably faulty.
fuse? switch? Selector?
it sounds like you need to replace the blower resister under the glove box
it's a problem with the blower motor resistor
No Blower in Floor Mode A customer arrives with a 1983 to 1995 Full Size Ford, Lincoln, or Mercury automobile with automatic temperature control. If the complaint is no blower operation when the floor mode is selected, the vehicle may have a problem with the thermal blower lockout switch also referred to as the CELO (cold engine lock out switch). The thermal blower lock out switch is located in the heater core intake hose. The two wire switch has a thermal element with a small set of contacts, the contacts are open when the coolant is below 120Â°F and closed when the coolant is above 120Â°F. The thermal blower lock out switch also contains a vacuum switch, which applies vacuum to the outside/recirculate valve when the system is in the floor position. When the engine coolant is below 120 degrees and the selector is set to floor position, the thermal blower lock out prevents blower from turning on and closes off the outside air during engine warm-up. When the coolant temperature is above 120 degrees, and the selector is set to the floor position, the thermal blower lock out switch allows the blower to operate and opens the outside air door. In order to diagnose this problem, test the thermal blower lockout switch with the engine at normal operating temperature (above 120Â°F). Unplug the wire harness connector from the thermal blower lockout switch. Using a 15-amp fused wire, jumper the harness terminals to test the switch. If the blower comes on, the thermal blower lock out switch is faulty. If the blower doesn't come on, look for an open between the control head selector and thermal blower lock out switch. In some cases the blower may continually run even when the engine temperature is below 120 degrees. Unplug the thermal blower lock out switch and if the blower motor turns off, the thermal blower lock out switch is faulty. If the motor continues to run, look for a short to power between the control head selector and thermal blower lock out switch
Could be a vacuum leak "defrost" is the default position of the system Check vacuum lines and motors under the dash
Faulty Function selector switch. Consider replacement.
Check to see if you are getting power and ground to the blower motor - if so blower motor is bad. If no power possibly fan switch or selector switch Also check the blower motor resistor, found in heater plenum.
It is either your blower motor resistor pulling too much current, or the blower motor itself pulling too much current. The resistor is located underneath the dashboard behind a kick shield. The blower motor is in the enigine compartment, just behind the battery.
My 1992 Saturn has heat until you change the blower speed what is the problem?
