HEATER NOT WORKING NOW

2004 Dodge Stratus

Heater problem
2004 Dodge Stratus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

my heater at one point would only work on high, I was lazy and didnt replace the blower motor resistor. Now the heater will not work at all and I was wondering if I possibly did more harm to the unit?

thank you

No, you shouldn't have harmed anythings else. The resistor DOES control all the speeds except HIGH. However, by not changing it when it quit, it could have just fisished itself off and now NO current can get to the blower. All voltage to the blower motor goes through the resistor block. Replace it. To be on the safe side, check all the fuses, too.
