My blower control jsut went out. i have no speeds with the fan. could this be the resistor or some thing else. i know when mine went out in the 2500 i low speed only. any one know?

The first thing to do is limber up your trusty multi-meter & check for voltage on the motor power lead above the passenger's foot well. If no power there, check the power feeding the resistor, a few inches away (follow the wire).Do you mean NO speeds as in no blower at all? Or only 1 speed? If the resistor fails, usually the high speed still works. The resistor slows it down from there. (If the resistor has failed, drop the blower motor & check inside the duct (the resistor block sticks up into the duct) and mouse debris can cause it to overheat causing resistor failure. If no power, check your fuses again.

i checked my fuses. they ar e good. this happened the other day, no fan speeds at all. it was working when i pulled into the gas station and when i came out and started the engine i had no speeds. a short time later it started working again. worked good for 2 days and then did it again and just started working on the way home tonight. all speeds working like normal. I have never had the rodent problems you have had in my 2500 so i dont think that would be an issue on the dakota. it seems that i might have a bad connection or ground with the way it is working. the resistor went out on the 2500 and i only had one speed. when this one acts up i have no speeds, ac still works just no fan

No speeds / correct opperation intermittantly, does indeed sound like a possible bad connection. Power right at the blower?

Start the truck turn the fan to one of the medium speeds then tilt the steering wheel up and down several times. If the fan starts you have a bad wiring harness on the column! You may need to push it hard to the upper and lower tilt stops (not real hard however). Or just remove the knee bluster and look at the harness, disconnect it and look at the connector ends for signs of burning. Dodge has a harness repair kit for this very problem.

This is what you don't want to see!
