2000 Dodge Caravan Front Wheel Drive Automatic 187000 miles

Van has just stopped blowing air from front vents no matter the setting, yet the rear air motor is blowing air just fine, but not hot nor cold just circulating air from the best that I can tell. What is the problem and about what cost to repair. Thank you.

Is the air coming from the defroster / heater area?

No sir, no air, or even sounds of the blower are emitted from the front console area, including the dashboard defrost vents. It is as if blower if there is such a thing is gone. The back vents blow air but not heated or cooled air, seems to just circulate from the interior but apparently has nothing to do with the dash unit.

There is a seperate blower motor for the front. It is under the dash on the passanger side. You need to check to make sure there is power to it. Let me know what you find.

At first the front heater switch would only work on one speed. I was told to replace the blower motor resistor and that would take care of the problem. Unfortunately, this no longer works at all. Could it be the blower that finally went bad?
Thanks!

Have to locate the blower motor and disconnect electric connector
using a test light or volts meter
check for power and ground on both wires
if both yes remove and replace blower motor
if no ground remove and replace speed control resister
if no power check fuses relay and wiring
let me know

Front blower fan doesn't work on any setting. Rear blower and a/c works fine. I believe a/c in front is ok too, since cold air will trickle out when I'm driving at faster speeds.
If, as I believe, the problem is with the blower, what do I check and how do I check it to confirm? How do I replace the resistor and/or the motor?
Thank you.

You need to test it before replacing anything. First try jumping power and ground directly to the motor to see if it works. If it does, then test for power and ground arriving at the motor to determine which is missing so we will know what direction to pursue next.

Did you check applicable fuses? Fuse 10--40 amp in the diagram. That fuse goes hot when the relay is energized. Also, take wiring connector loose from blower motor, use voltmeter between the two terminals at wiring connector, everything turn on, does it show good voltage?

I have a 2007 Dodge Caravan and yesterday, the fan/heater in the front of the van stopped working. The back blower/heater still works, just not the front. Any idea what it could be or how to fix it?

Thanks!
