Applying Power And Ground To The Blower Motor. How To Test The Blower Motor (2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 2006 Dodge Stratus, Chrysler Sebring)

Applying power and ground to the blower motor, to test it is our next step.

If the blower motor is OK, manually applying power and Ground to it should make it run.

If the blower motor is defective, then you'll get one of two results. It'll either not run or it'll run but with a lot of bearing noise.

NOTE: You'll be applying power and ground to the blower motor's connector. This connector has male spade terminals.

Let's get started:

  1. 1

    Disconnect the blower motor from its electrical connector.

    The connector has 2 wires. The dark green (DK GRN) wire supplies power and the black (BLK) wire supplies Ground (via the blower resistor).

  2. 2

    Apply battery power to the blower motor.

    You'll be applying power to the male spade terminal (of the blower motor itself) that connects to the DK GRN wire of the electrical connector.

  3. 3

    Apply chassis Ground to the blower motor.

    You'll be applying Ground to the male spade terminal (of the blower motor itself) that connects to the BLK wire of the electrical connector.

  4. 4

    The blower motor should run.

Let's take a look at your test results:

CASE 1: The blower motor ran and ran without any bearing noise. This is the correct test result. You can conclude that the blower motor is not defective on your 2001-2006 Dodge Stratus (Chrysler Sebring).

CASE 2: The blower motor ran with a lot of bearing noise. This test result tells you that the blower motor is defective and needs to be replaced.
