2004 Jeep Cherokee Overland

I have never posted a thread before so I wanted to say hello! However, I seem to be having problems with blower motor resistors on my Jeep consistently going bad. I am on my third one now. It will quit working and as soon as I turn the A/C or heater off and turn it back on, it will work again for a short time and quit again. My Jeep has cost me over $9 grand in the last four years in numerous replacement costs including a new motor, I am tired of dumping money into it. Any solutions on the blower motor resistor?

Re: 2004 Jeep Cherokee Overland

Hey Dude, I don't know if you found this online researching but for some weird reason it seems that all replacement blower motor resistors for the WJ are wired incorrectly. I had to replace the blower motor resistor on my 2004 Overland and when I got it from Rockauto I had to change the position of a couple pins on the plug before it would work correctly. If I just plugged it in, the fan ran what sounded to be slower and backwards. Look it up online it might be the reason why you've had so many failures.

Edit: I forgot to mention, to each his own of course but if you've put $9000 into a decade old vehicle over the course of 4 years than it's time to upgrade my friend. Could save you a lot of headache and money. Best of luck either way!

Re: 2004 Jeep Cherokee Overland

Oh believe me, If I was financially able to get a different vehicle, I would have by now. It eats up any spare change I do have set back for a newer car and every tax check I have received. Every time I get ready to sell it, something major goes wrong and eats up money going towards a different vehicle. I'm dudette by the way. LOL! I noticed when I went to get a new resistor from the parts store, it had longer prongs(pins) on it than mine does. Is this because the part with shorter prongs are faulty? I had to order the part for a 2003 for it to be the right part.

Oh and by the way, thank you for your information. I will go over this with my mechanic.
