Failure in the blower motor power module (automatic temperature controls) or resistor block (manual AC) may cause the heater blower motor to work only on the high setting. The connector to the power module/resistor block is known to overheat (and sometimes melt). The connector or terminals should be replaced; a replacement connector is available.

Heat and AC only blow on HI setting.
My experience with the ac blower connector melting is one of the flaws in that year of jeep. I simply cut that connector out and put a connector from Dorman® Tech Choice™ - Blower Motor Resistor Connector Part # 973-304 $9.99 can be purchased from Orielly auto parts or online at Dorman.com.. Replaced that connector and I have (NOT)had that problem again. One of many poor designs flaws from Chrysler.

Blower controls would randomly turn on / off. Wire was melted near the resistor. Replacement took place on 02/2011 and cost $190.00

I just needed another connector installed and made the mistake of taking my 2000 jeep to Suncost Chysler in St. petersburg FL. After they were done with my car it cost over $1800.00 as they broke my vent doors after replacing not only the connector but the resistor. It now required removal of the dash to fix vent doors. All these systems worked fine when brought into Suncost. After they removed the dash they claimed the condenser was leaking freon. This car could freeze your legs before they got ahold of it.

Air only blows on high. I refreshed the coolant for the AC which kept it cool for a time but not a whole cans worth. After another 3000 miles the AC barely blows cold air.

A/c shuts off and I was able to get it to go back on by turning it off and on again bit the last few times I couldn't get it to come back on so I waited a couple days and I today turned the heat on and the heat came on and then it to shut off and then it can back on by itself and went back off again
This problem is constant, the heater/AC blower does not work at any speed when when turned on....
Air condintoner fan ONLY work on high, as soon as I turn fan lower, the AC turns off altogether...
My fan has 4 position settings and just started only working on high. Does not matter what zone...
The blow only works in the defrost mode. Is it my blower motor resistor
