I pulled over and checked everything out, I couldn't find anything, so we kept driving. Nothing else happened, so I thought nothing of it.
Today on the way home from work, in a matter of 10-15 minutes the hvac intermittently quit working about 5-6 different times. The I jumped on the interweb to see if there was a common issue concerning this.. I went to pull the blower motor controller, I can get the blower motor connecter undone, but not the opposing end.
From what I can tell, this means that the connector must have melted which will not allow me to disconnect it.
Is that a safe assumption?
If so, I assume I can just cut the wires just behind the connector and hard wire them to the controller?
You can just remove the connector out of the picture and solder to the resistor, or you can buy the kit with the larger gauge wires, it doesn't cost very much. It's what I did, after my blower motor quit working, intermittently. I had to keep hitting the box below the glove box, with my cane, to make it work again. This got old, so I stopped by Chrysler on one of my drives around, for work, and bought the kit for $17 or so. Later that night, I cut the old connector off, put heat-shrink on the wires, soldered the wires and heated the heat-shrink tubing in place to solve this problem. No problem for to years, now (knock wood.)
