No. The HVAC computer is the one with the heater controls. It should be behind the plate that goes around the radio

The blower motor on my 2001 dodge grand caravan quit working and I tried replacing it but am having a heck of a time trying to get to the last bolt in the back (5th bolt)
Anyone with ideas on how to get to it because its cold outside and having to commute long distances without a heater is just brutal. Thanks

I do have a 1/4" drive but just cant get to it. I even tried reaching it through the top. I removed the speaker cover and the speaker but all my efforts have proved futile

You need to start at the motor. Check to see if it is getting power. If it is, the motor is bad.

Does it work on any of the speeds?

Let me know.

Dont replace anything till you diag the issue, then replace the failed part.

Check for voltage to the heater blower motor.

Heater problem
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.

My radio, heater blower, and wiper stop every few minutes for about 10 seconds, then restart. I looked at relays by am not sure which one it would be that controlls these 3 devices. Does anyone know for sure? Could be something else?

Sounds like a BCM or body control module. Whats strange is the radio, but I have seen stranger. Like wipers going a light speed and power windows slamming up and down like the car was possessed.
Call a parts store such as autozone and ask, it has worked for me many times. Good luck.

I have a dodge grand caravan '01 65,000 ish miles v6. My air conditioner isn't blowing in the front, back works fine. Checked fuses they are fine. Car was in an accident 4 years ago, the engine was pushed back, but was repaired and since then things are going wrong. Auto doors don't work from the inside but works from the key, not sure if any of that is relevent but thought it may help? I just wrote all of this but pushed a button and all was gone, don't know if it got sent and if it did sorry for the repeat. Anyway I have checked the heat too nothing is coming out of the front. No defrost either. Help please its really hot! :( I don't have a great amount of funds right now :oops: and hope it is an easy fix. I did get a Chilton repair book from the library so I can do a self fix yada yada.
Thank you in advance for your help

First find the blower for the front. With the fan turned on use a test light to see if power is gwetting to the motor in all positions on the fan speed control on dash, if power and no fan then the fan motor is bad. If no power, PM me and we will go through the steps to find the problem
