I think you'll need to replace the resistor pack. Melting leads means that too much current is flowing because the resistors can't handle the load.

My next step would be to check the fan motor itself. If you're lucky, it may just be crudded up and in need of a good cleaning. At worst, you may need to replace it due to damaged wiring, insulation or whatnot.

#8 of 12 2006 SLT AC stopped cooling
Jun 17, 2009 (6:49 am)
My 2006 SLT has about 40 k miles on it. While on a trip, AC suddenly went to ambient temperature in front and rear still was cooling. Since I was travelling, I stopped at a Firestone dealer (the only place in the area that said they did AC) and asked them to analyze. They said I need a new top line that was probably blocked and new compressor, but since I was in town only a day or two, they could not order it in time. I'm glad they could not do the fix as I was skeptical and it gave me time to do some research. I've seen other posts on this in this forum and I am still skeptical of the diagnosis, but have not seen a solution in this forum. One post hinted at a switch problem, another at an electrical problem and another a control module problem. I'm afraid of taking it to a dealer, especially given Dodge's current financial state. I don't mind doing some do it yourself, but this sounds like it could be a tricky problem to finally solve. I'm in the Pittsburgh area and I'm looking for a good AC service company. But does anyone have any confirmed diagnosis--blower works fine, rear has cool air, coolant gas pressure is good and full. Any thoughts would help. Thanks.
#9 of 12 2002 Durango with burned resistor connector
Nov 20, 2010 (3:35 pm)
I have a 2002 Durango SLT and my blower motor resistor wiring harness connector just burned up. The Dealer wants $700 to fix it. I went to area junk yards to see if I could find and replace the part myself. I saw many Durangos with the connector and resistor already cut out. The staff all advised that they are a hot item that they can't keep in stock. Their view is that this frequent problem is the result of a design flaw that should have been the subject of a recall. They also suggested I try Ebay. Has Dodge taken a position on this problem? I would appreciate any other advice available.
