Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Durango 4WD 8-cyl

  • 122,000 miles
Air conditioning stopped working under normal use. After inspecting the blower motor resistor, and connector plug I found the inside to be melted likely due to too much voltage. I had to cut the wires as the connector was fused to the resistor. Not able to find this connector through local junk/salvage yards, because this apparently is a common issue with this model Durango. Only able to get after market part for this connector, and will have to re-wire it to the blower motor resistor.

The contact owns a 2003 Dodge Durango. The contact stated that the blower motor harness fan became hot and melted the wiring. The contact activated the air conditioner but there was no response. The dealer was notified of the failure who informed him that he would have to purchase a kit and repair it himself. The manufacturer was not notified. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 70,763.

Blower motor completely stops working due to blower motor resistor and attached wiring pigtail completely burning out. This problem has occurred every 12 -18 months over the last five years of ownership. The failure requires the replacement of a resistor(part # 5061575aa) and wiring harness connector kit.(part # 5017124ac) it is my understanding from the mechanics who have made these repairs that all or part of the parts requiring replacement have overheated to the extent of melting and/or burning prior to failure.
