2001 Dodge Dakota Blower Motor

The blower motor does not work when hooked to the pickup. With the motor hooked up to the harness under the dash I have enough power on both sides of the plug to light my test light-this is a good thing. With the blower unhooked my test light lights up on one side of the plug, and not on the other-this is good. I hooked the motor directly up to a battery and it wound tight-this is good.

The bad... I made a continuity tester out of a AA battery, a small light bulb, and some wire. I have no ground on the ground side of the plug. This would lead me to believe that the resistor module is bad... Alright, but the blower does not blow on high either..... Hmmm. What do you guys think?

What I do know-the blower is good, I have power. I got no warning of any of this stuff malfunctioning. One morning I turned it on and got no blow.

Anything? I ordered a resister module thing. It ought to be in today. I'll put that in and see what happens. If that does not work I may just put a switched ground wire in and run the blower off that for now as I have limited time to screw with it at I am a full time student and work full time in a tire shop.

Replace the blower resistor and you should be good to go!

That did the trick. The new part was a lot higher quality than the old part.
