Re: Odd AC blower control problem?

I replaced both the module AND the blower fan. It's only been a few months but thus far hasn't failed again. I bought this OEM blower with wheel motor...

Re: aftermarket battery selection

It's really a bad plan to have a battery that's not securely mounted. Even if you're just mall-crawling with it, a battery coming loose during an accident could very well turn a simple problem into...

Re: Blowing Resistor packs

Just replaced the motor with a new Mopar one. Didn't improve the situation, but that's probably because the module was shot. Replaced that and now have fan control again. For how long is anyone's...

Re: Aspherical Mirrors?

Anyone know the part number for these? I'd imagine it's a European part, as they're more commonly used over there. I'd like to pick up a left, driver's side one for my '06 WK.

The plug on mine appears fine, no signs of overheating, charring or anything.

Re: Blowing Resistor packs

What's the least-hassle way to determine if it's the motor? I have to wonder if the modules failing in my WK is due to crappy aftermarket stuff or the motor itself.

Re: Odd AC blower control problem?

Hmmm, well, it's spinning, in that it's running constantly when the ignition's on. Is there an easy way in to the fan cage to give it a manual spin?

Re: Odd AC blower control problem?

I keep having this problem. It randomly kills the module. I'm on my fourth aftermarket one. Warranties are great and all, but I'm tired of replacing the same damned thing over and over.

Re: Dragging front brake pads?

Yes, of course it's a pad-to-rotor noise, that would be what I'm looking to eliminate.

Re: MTC to ATC Conversion

That and the blower control module, the MTC uses a resistor, ATC uses a circuit board setup (that's $100 to replace) Fortunately I saved the receipt and autozone replaced it no charge.
