2003 Grand Cherokee Limited blower stopped working

Hello all. I have a 2003 Grand Cherokee Limited. 33,000 miles. Yesterday, the blower on the A/C and heater stopped working. It doesn't work on any settings (low/hi and in between). I also tried it without AC and on heater, defrost, etc

I've been reading that there is a connector that melts? Can someone tell me where this connector is located? Also, any ideas on what the issue/resolution may be?

Thanks much - great site

Its under the passenger side dash. Its the connector that plugs into the resistor and it overheats and melts. The dealer sells a repair kit for it or you can go to a jy and clip a new plug from one there. Pull the resistor and check the plugs. If its melted bad you may not be able to disconnect it without cutting it. Make sure you leave as much wire as possible so you have some extra to work with when installing the new one.

Thats the your help. Im kinda new to this, so sorry if Im asking "simple" questions. You mention its under the dash board - is that behind the Glove box or actually under the dash board. I replaced a tweeter recently, and removed part of the dash, just not exactly sure how to remove the entire dash (if necessary). Also, if you have the Mopar Part #, that will help.

Thank again!!

crawl into the passenger floor board and look up under the dash, you will see a round object, and 3 wires taped up comming out from it. theres a clip that needs to be pulled out where those 3 wires go. Pull it out if you can and check to see if it is melted. if so, cut and replace. if not, keep checking

To elaborate on JTSJEEP99, the connector melts, then warps, causing the connectors to break contact with each other.
X2 on crawling underneath, unplugging fan plug, and buying a new wiring kit.
I just bought the wiring kit, instead of the new resistor kit, it was cheaper, and my plug has not melted anymore. I forget what the p/n is, but I think it's in www.wjjeeps.com.
