1989 Dodge Dakota with a complaint of no blower operation. I have had lots of experience with these and went straight to the problem. Luckily this year model has the blower resistor in a convenient location. Sometimes they are inside the dash or under the washer reservoir at the cowl area on various Chrysler, Dodge and Plymouth products.
After unplugging the harness connector and removing the two screws, I could remove and examine the resistor coils for damage.
The heat and subsequent rust damage are clearly visible in the pictures.
Installed the new resistor and I did reconnected the harness even though the picture shows it still disconnected. Checked blower operation and all speeds now work.
As a side note it does not hurt to check to make sure rain water will drain out of the area and make sure there are no leaves or other debris restricting air flow through the evaporator or heater core.
