#1 of 199 Chrysler T&C Blower Fan
Mar 17, 2006 (12:13 pm)
Could not find a good answer to this problem of my climate control blower running on high even when the climate control was turned off. I found the solution through my own research. The control module went bad. This used to be called a resistor pack. Now there are no resistors in it, but only a solid state silicone FET. It is located behind the glove box. Simply open glove compartment and make it swing all the way down by squeezing in on the sides. You will see the module attached to plenum with two plugs connected. Unscrew the two 8mm screws to get module out. New part number from dealer is 5179985AA. The original module part number has been discontinued.
If you know somebody electrically inclined, they can fix the old one by replacing the power FET on circuit board.

Your description of the blower fan problem could not come at a better time. We have a 2000 chrysler. We tried replacing the front panel where the radio is which has the electronic computer (used-2 different units) but that didn't work.
What is the year of your van?
If our's has a resister pack where would we find that?
How likely is it that the resister pack would be the problem instead of the body control module which you described?
What is the cost of replacing the body control module (used?)
Can you put this unit in yourself?
We were told that you have to reset the computer after replacing the body control module, is that what you experienced?

My van is a 2002. The module or resistor pack is the same thing...only the insides are different. Dealer cost for the module was $56.00. The module/resistor pack is definately the blower problem. Yes, you can very easily do it yourself in about 10 minutes.

Do you know the part number for the Power MOSFET on the referenced resistor pack?

I have a similar problem with my 05 T&C The blower fan will not work, I can hear the AC compressor come on when turned on and I have checked the fuses and relay switches and they appear to be fine. could the resister pack be the problem? and is it in the same place on a 05

this is a 35.00 item that you merely have to drop down the Glove compartment door, unscrew two screws and plug in the new part--an amazingly easy fix--happened to me on vacation in Ocean City and no chrysler dealer would take me that day within 100 miles--figured it out myself and fixed
#9 of 199 Town & Country SWB: A/C air filter

Does a 2005 Town & Country SWB (i.e. base model) have an A/C air filter? My owner's manual just says "If So Eqipped". I am unable to locate it where described (under passenger side instrument panel).

I know my base 2001 caravan has one. You practically have to lay your head on the floor looking up under the dash/glovebox, where you will see a 10" X 1" oval cover held on by a sliding plastic retainer. It's almost exactly behind the left hinge of the glovebox. The filter sits vertically up behind that oval plastic cover.
