Blower Motor Not Blowing Air
 
So I have a 01 Limited, yesterday while driving it quit blowing air and when I would turn the car off and back on, it would work for a few minutes and now that is not working at all.

I can feel hot or cold air at the vent when I have the switch in the on position, but it's just not being blown out of the vents.

Any ideas what could be wrong before I go buy the parts or how to test the motor or something.

Thanks!

I guess I'm trying to distinguish whether I need to fix the resister or the actual motor based on searches.

Have a look first at the connector on the blower motor, many times its melted due to bad contact. If you have the duel zone system, there is a blower motor controller and no resistor.

I pulled the glove box down, and all I see is 1 harness up to left connected to something that the plug and wiring look fine on, everything else under there is just a bunch of black plastic. So I'm guessing that was the connector you mentioned, but it appears fine.

And yes, I have dual zone.

When i'm not wrong, the blower motor is sticking out from the underside of the HVAC housing and is the wiring also at the underside.
The connector you can see through the glovebox is from the passenger side blend door actuator.

Franks right about the thing melting, happened to mine. The motor is just a black box from memory, sits under the glovebox. It could just be the plug that's had it though

I took the motor out and tested it, it works fine. I inspected end of wire harness that plugs into motor and it appears fine, where does the other end go to? It has to be just getting a bad connection I assume. If I need that harness replaced, where can I get one and what is the name of the part?

The wire should go from the blower to the controller, which is also mounted on the HVAC housing. I know that jeep has a repair kit with the connector, but i donīt think that you will change the whole harness in that way. First try to duplicate the problem and then wiggle with the cable loom until the blower stops working. You first need to know where the problem exactly is, before you start changing anything.

well it has to be the harness, because when I connected it to battery, no problems. When I plugged it back in it worked until I started driving i'm assuming from vibration. If the other end of the plug is the other end of this harness, it all appears to be okay.

Should I take a picture?

Alright here is some pictures...

This first photo is of the plug that attaches to the blower itself

This 2nd photo is of the plug that is to the upper left behind glove box

Re: Blower Motor Not Blowing Air
 
The second picture is as i told you the passenger side blend door actuator with connector, has nothing to do with the blower.
The third picture is the blower motor controller, which could be the culprit.
But there is quite some wiring going from the power distribution center fuse 1 (40A) to the blower motor controller, so only by wiggling with the wires you can find any internally broken wire or bad contact from connectors or fuses.
Also check the connectors and wiring behind the airconditioning panel.
