Hey guys. Well after numerous times of asking my passenger to "Jiggle those wires down there" I finally fix the blower motor resistor.
It starts off like this.
1. Located the blower motor resistor and determine if that is infact the problem. It will normally look like this.
If you take the resistor apart, it will be similar to this
2. You can start by unplugging the plug on the blower motor. And then unplug the wire that is actually melted/burnt. This may take some effort, and it some cases is impossible, so you may just want to cut the plug off of the wires, in this case, cut up far enough past the burnt part on the wires to save you some time. And then unscrew the old resistor that is held by 2 Phillips screws. At this point, it should be hanging freely. You may have to lead the blower motor power plug around the HVAC box so that it is free.
This picture here gives you an idea of the power plug and how it is routed.
Heres the plug after its cut off
And the hole where the resistor should be!
4w you can start by screwing the adapter plate onto the newer updated blower motor resistor! Also take a look at the way your old vs new release heat.
Old vs New
4. Now reroute the power plug and plug that back in. Next install the new resistor by putting in the screws.
5. You may want to do this before step 4, but its all personal preferance. Strip each end of the wires and connect them to the wires that you cut the old plug off of. There should be (6) That you need to do this too. It would be best if you solder/heat wrap them. But you can also use crush connectors too.
Then test to see if it works!
Notes; Your wire that is used to connect the resistor to the blower motor may be backwards from the factory. Meaning that you may have the switch the wires around in the plug. Its very easy to do. Just pop out the blue locking thing with a flat head screw driver, then carefully pry the black "legs" that hold the wires in place and push down on the wire inside the plug.
Please excuse the burnhole on my floor. That is what happens when you leave this problem go for too long, it heats up so much, melts the plastic, and catches the whole underside of the HVAC box on fire. The P/O did not care to show me this, nor did he tell me. This would be the second time that I had to mess with the HVAC box. IMO Mopar did a horrible job with this HVAC system.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask!
Total cost of about 100$
Kolak sells the whole kit and I would absolutly reccomend buying this from him! He is a great seller and is very very helpfull in any questions you may have.
Also, I have no carpet because I unfortunatly went through a mud hole that I didnt know how deep it was, So its getting shampooed right now.
^^ Was actually deeper then in the picture. There I was stuck and my buddies got out and were laughing at me. It was deep enough I got water into my airbox, I dont know how I didnt kill my motor.
