BLOWER MOTOR RESISTOR (FRONT) 1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable. Disconnect the instrument panel wire harness connector for the blower motor resistor and the blower motor pigtail wire connector from the resistor connector receptacles. 2. Check for continuity between each of the blower motor switch input terminals of the blower motor resistor and the resistor output terminal. In each case there should be continuity. If okay, repair the instrument panel wire harness circuit between the blower motor switch and the blower motor resistor or the blower motor pigtail wires as required. If not okay, replace the faulty blower motor resistor. Page 1 of 1 MANUAL A/C-HEATER SYSTEMS -2002 Dodge Caravan SE 2/8/2009
BLOWER MOTOR RELAY The blower motor relay, see Fig. 30 , is located in the Intelligent Power Module (IPM), which is in the engine compartment near the battery. See the fuse and relay layout map molded into the inner surface of the IPM cover for front blower motor relay identification and location. Remove the relay from the IPM to perform the following tests: 1. A relay in the de-energized position should have continuity between relay terminals No. 87A and 30, and no continuity between relay terminals No. 87 and 30. If okay, go to step 2. If not okay, replace the faulty relay. 2. Resistance between relay terminals No. 85 and 86 (electromagnet) should be 70-80 ohms. If okay, go to step 3. If not okay, replace the faulty relay. 3. Connect a fused jumper wire from battery voltage to relay terminal No. 85 and ground relay terminal No. 86. There should now be continuity between relay terminals 30 and 87, and no continuity between relay terminals No. 87A and 30. If okay, use a DRBIII scan tool to perform further diagnosis of the relay circuits. See SELF-DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEM . If not okay, replace the faulty relay.
