2002 dodge stratus sedan. Blower motor will not work when car is started, but if you hit a bump in the road the blower may come on and stay on. Turn the car off, and the blower doesn't work again until you hit a bump in the road again. Also having difficulty finding blower motor resistor and blower mounting nuts.

Hi stan.dooley,

Thank you for the donation.

The blower motor and resistor are both located on the HVAC housing.

Symptoms indicates the blower motor is failing as the carbon brushes are wearing off.

When blower is turned on and does not work, give the HAC housing some banging with your hand. If the motor starts working, it is bad.
