Blower Motor Stoped

RE: Blower Motor Stoped
My god, I can't believe we are STILL getting hits on this but glad it's helping so many people.

You may want to break the plug apart and crimp on new connectors because the high current draw will eventually burn up anything that is marginal. Since the original damage is probably from water / moisture you should add some grease to the contacts to prevent future issues.

Also, somewhere in this thread there's mention of a factory replacement plug (pig tail?) available from the dealer but I have not found one.

RE: Blower Motor Stoped
Hi,

I had the resistor go out on the 90 Dynasty. I do not advise others to do this but, rather than tear the whole dash out to replace the inexpensive resistor, I made my own resistor out of, about a 3 inch section of coiled, personal heater/hot plate wire and strung it in the fan housing to keep it cool with the fan. (I get about the best all-around flow with that length) I also put in a heavy duty light switch for a full power/max flow when I need that.

If the resistor was not in such an inaccessible place I would have certainly put in the $10 resistor I took back to the dealer.

I got the idea from an after-market switch that has a coil in the switch like a hot plate, but it just burns out from getting too hot and is also a fire hazard. So I made my own using the blower to keep the resistor cool.

It is "funky" but it has been working a long time now and has saved me a major tear-down. Smile

Sounds like a resistor or switch. Here are a couple of pictures showing the location of the resistor so you can test with a test light.

Sorry I am new at using this reply thing. Yes, it must be common for
this model or we would not be still discussing it. I inherited this van from my daughter & son in law who live in Montana. I drove it back two years ago and stopped in Arvada, Colorado. A snow storm hit that night and the next day, the blower stopped (all speeds) after about 10 minutes of running. I used solar heat and luck to get home to Montana. Since then, every warm spring day the blower works perfectly. I figure about 65 plus degrees. Then at night cool down it again stops.
It appears I have found much help here. At least now I can find the resistor that I have scoured the interior dash looking for. Thanks much.
