Оригинальный сообщение: Dakota Fan ,


[quote]Even if you use 100% OEM parts it still fails:

The reason is………….For your 2001 to 2011 vehicle MOPAR didn’t make  your replacement part.  Oh sure it will say MOPAR on the box and say  factory original OEM part,   BUT IT’S NOT!!!!!   It’s made buy a number  of after market companys, mostly NAPA.   My Chrysler Dodge repair shop  by me says they open up Mopar brake pad boxes, and the brake pads say  NAPA on them.

Just the way it is today.  Noboys makes their own parts anymore,  mostly China crap.  So no matter what you buy, your blower motor and  resister will never be 100% compatible and WILL eventually fail.

Go to a salvage yard, find a low mileage Durango or Dakota and pull the motor and resister and then you will  be good to go.


Only use high speed fan setting for heat and AC.   Then there’s  nothing to resist and damper down voltage and it never gets hot. You can  even use cheap eBay parts etc.

Sorry, not the perfect fix but it is the truth, I’ve spent 2 years figuring this out[/quote]

Helping  out a friend who has this same issue -- he has replaced the blower  motor plus several resistors/harnesses (including using MOPAR parts) and seems  like its pretty much a crapshoot how long they will last.

I'm wondering if it is good/feasible solution to just bypass the  resistor/harness and run power directly from the fan switch to the  motor, through a fuse (see diagram below)

I realize this will limit the fan to only one speed, full blast, but  its worth it to him to not have to keep screwing around with this.    Does anyone see any issues/downsides to this workaround?
