Hey all,
So my blower motor resister pretty much died and fried the harness with it. I can't seem to find a replacement harness for a new resistor.

I've searched eBay/Amazon and found this

http://www.amazon.com/Chrysler-Blower-Resistor-Harness-5017124AB/dp/B005DIQGRU/ref=sr_1_1?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1391053263&sr=1-1&keywords=blower+motor+resistor+harness

- though I'm not sure if this will work. And this is also just the 1st part of the harness. I may need to replace the second clip that goes into the resistor as well.

Can someone point me in the right direction? I've searched the forum but did not see a thread regarding a melted harness. Just saw a lot of threads about the blower motor resistor.

Thanks in advance!

You did not specify whether you had manual or automatic temperature controls as well

For the Mopar "pigtails" these are the resources:
Mopar connector repair kits:
http://connectors.dcctools.com/home.htm

Mopar wiring harness service connector manual
http://starparts.chrysler.com/starlibrary/marketing/conkits/index.htm

ALSO, aftermarket does provide "pigtails" as well

Some reputable ones include the sister companies of SMP & BWD as well as Wells, these are also available at a car parts store

SMP: http://www.standardbrand.com/Online Catalogs-eCatalog/Content.aspx
Wells: http://www.wellsve.com/ecatalog.html

Do you have a salvage yard in your vicinity? if not try car-part.com (you could probably get both parts and fairly cheap.. if you go this route, might be worth to get the blower motor from the same van and swap it all at once)
or get a new pig tail..

Thanks! Sorry, I have a 2002 Chrysler Voyager. It has a manual temperature control.

I don't have one very close but I can travel through the boroughs and find something for sure. I think that would be a good idea, but i need to read into installing a blower motor. I've read they are a PITA to get to and replace.

Question: On wellsve.com, I see Part #923 as the HVAC BLOWER MOTOR RESISTOR CONNECTOR. The part in the image is not assembled, meaning I would have to add the wires inside the connector. Is this part for both harnesses or just the 1 'bigger' one?

The Wells pigtail is how they usually come, whether Mopar or aftermarket.
The short wire is already crimped to a connector.
The parts in blue are the connectors that they want you to use to crimp the old and the new wires.
I usually solder and use heat-shrink tubing instead of using them.

The wire and terminals then push into the plastic connector or you can assemble it and then solder the wires together. The terminals can only go into the plastic connector a certain way, so you want to make sure how it goes together before connecting any wires.

Thanks a lot! So to clarify, the smaller connector comes as it is, but I need to assemble the wires for the larger connector, right? Then of course I will solder to the wires in car.

Harness color code

Just an update:

When I went to change the harness, it was severely burnt. It was so bad that some of the wires got burnt off of the connector. So I tried googling the color code for the harness (since I didn't know where each wire belonged on the connector), and did not find anything useful.

I ended up calling a mechanic I know and he was able to pull up a wiring diagram for the harness and gave me the rundown as to what color belongs in what slot.

Maybe there was an easier way for me to find out, but I didn't know where to get it from.

So for anyone else in the future that may have the same issue I had, I have attached the color code for the harness. Again, maybe there is a place where you guys can go and look it up but I tried and did not succeed. Hopefully this will help someone out in the future.

Glad you worked it out. For future reference, the wire color codes are listed with the connector repair kits, as well as the gauge of the wire, and includes a diagram of the wire terminal locations.

I have mentioned this resource before, but I am posting an image so people get a better idea. For some reason the graphics on mine now download as a DWF file, instead of popping up on mine screen. I just used Autodesk DWF viewer 7 to view them.

The Mopar Repair Connection website is:
http://connectors.dcctools.com/

Your Voyage is not listed, but it is the RS platform, same as Caravan / Town & Country

Another resource I have mentioned in some threads is AutoZone. They have vehicle repair guides that include electrical diagrams and pinouts. Not as extensive as the AutoZone owned AllData paid subscription, but still pretty useful.

One more resource for electrical diagrams is from BBB industries.
It is free, just signup to get access. Plus, you have access to the TSB's

"BBB Industries provides FREE access to our database of Technical Service Bulletins (TSB’s) and Wiring Diagrams for all automotive applications, makes and models. You are free to read, download and print the complete TSB (not just title and description) and all wiring diagrams."

And another one. Get a password from your local library for the EBSCO data base if they use it. Then from home you can access the ARRC data base that has wiring diagrams, procedures, TSBs, recalls, maintenance schedules and specifications for just about any vehicle on the planet 2010 and older.

HEY MODERATORS. HOW ABOUT TAKING THE MANUAL SOURCES LISTED HERE AND MAKING A STICKY.
