7/70 Warranty - Drivetrain Only or Bumper to Bumper

So, my blower motor gave out on my '05 Rubicon (not the deal where only the first three speeds give out, it won't work on any speed), and I set an appt at the dealer, but then he made a casual comment about the bumper to bumper being out of warranty, but I was heading out the door, so it didn't sink in 'til I got home.

Regardless, if the 7/70 is drivetrain only, then I will cancel my appt and go to my local shop, cuz the dealer is an hour away, and will burn a day of vacation time.

Thanks!

Replace it yourself anyway, the blower motor simply has a plastic clip and the whole assembly rotates out. I did mine in the parking lot of the dealership after I got the new part from the parts department.

Sounds simple enough....but what if it's not the blower? Could it be the switch? My apologies....I shouldn't have stated that the blower went out, cuz I actually don't know if that's the case. All I know is that it won't work on any speed.

Usualy if its the switch it will only work in specific settings, if its the resistor same thing. If the blower motor is bad it wont work at all, or may spin very slowly on any speed.

You can easily check this your self if you have a 12volt test light or multimeter

Simply disconnect the plug going into the blower motor and plug the test light or multimeter in and see if you see voltage, if you dont then your problem is elsewhere if you do then your problem is the blower motor.

Excellent info! Will check it out....Thanks to all!

What's irritating is that it never showed signs of going out or behaving oddly. It simply worked one day, nothing the next. No warning, no funny noises, etc.
