enter image description hereLast year I changed out my father's 2003 Dodge Ram van's blower motor resistor after hearing complaints about his AC only working on high.

I did some googling and found that many people pointed their fingers at the blower motor resistor being the problem so I swapped it for a new one and it worked...for about a month and a half.

Could there be another problem causing the AC to work only on high, or is it the resistor again?

  • Sounds like you just got a bad resistor pack. I've had one die on me in a short time. In my truck, it goes strait to high fan speed and stays there with the truck shut off. You have to pull the fuse until you get a new resistor for it. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Mar 7 '17 at 2:21
  • thanks for passing on the knowledge! What does lulling the fuse do/prevent? – Miguel Moreno Mar 7 '17 at 3:15
  • If not the resister i would replace the control switch for the blower. – David Ward Mar 7 '17 at 12:25
  • @Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 probably has to pull the fuse because it's likely a pwm system with a control module and not really a resister. in your case it wouldn't help. you see this in newer hyundais and kias as well. – Ben Mar 7 '17 at 14:01
  • @Ben - Yah, it's because of how GM does their thing. I don't know why they provide power all the time to the blower resistor, but that's the way they designed it. Especially when the blown resistor provides a means to give full power to the fan. I guess my comments have confused things for the OP. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Mar 7 '17 at 14:07
