Can't speak for the '04 directly, but the '03 does not appear to have a fuse other than whatever fuse is on the ignition switch. The current that drives the fan motor will always be limited by the resistor block that determines fan speed, so Dodge must have taken that into account. Seems strange to me not to have it separately fused.

Very simple circuit. The connectors have come loose, a wire has come loose, the fan motor is burned or the resistor block is open. That is pretty much all there is.

If you cant find a fuse or bad connection I would look into the key switch. Mine shorted out and gave my motor constant power and wouldn't shut with the key only the fan speed ****.

I had the resistor go out in my 04. The only speed I had was high. Take the resistor out and measure it with a meter. It's located at the foot well of the passenger side, held in by 2 screws and has about 4 or 5 larger wires going to it.

Sorted, found the connecter at the rear of the switch not pushed in properly.

Cheers for the help

A zero out-of-pocket cost fix. The best kind! That's great news.

Good news indeed when it is free and simple, especially this time of year.
