I own a 2004 Chrysler Pacifica, and the front fan stopped working. I replaced the front blower motor resistor with three (3) new ones. I know the man at the local AutoZone who took them back. Replacing this unit with a new one did not fixed the problem.
What I discovered if I run a wire between the negatives of the blower motor resistor (black to black/orange wires) the fan stay on high speed and nothing on the control unit (changing the fan speeds or turning the unit on/off) changes the fan speed from being on high.
Do you know what the issue is with my car? I am clueless at this point.

I will test power and grounds at the front blower motor resistor and fan motor and this weekend? By testing this, what am I trying to narrow down to be my problem – i.e. a bad fan motor or something else?
And...the failure is usually the MOSFET power transistor in the module. If you are handy with a soldering iron and so inclined, look up online or visit your local electronics supply house and buy a Fairchild N-channel MOSFET part number HUF75343P3.
The MOSFET will cost you ~$2.00-$3.00
The entire module is $50-$100.
I have repaired several with good results and no further issues.
I purchase and tried three (3) new blower motor resistors, and "the typical failure mode of the fan running uncontrollably at high speed regardless of the the manual setting - l do see the 'speed bars' on the display change, but the fan will run full speed." Still happens.
The only twist to make the typical failure happen is that I need to run a wire between the negatives of the blower motor resistor (black to black/orange wires). If I do not run the wire, the fan does not blow at all.
