Hello,
I have a 2016 Jeep Patriot and for the past few months my blower for the AC/Heater has had some issues. It won’t turn on at all even on the highest setting then it’ll start running for a few seconds but sound like it’s struggling to run then after the few seconds it’ll stop again. The air is cold so it’s not a compressor issue so I’m thinking it’s either the blower itself or the resistor. Can anyone help me figure out the issue?

With the symptoms you described, it sounds like a failed blower motor. If it was a bad resistor then the blower would still work, but only on high.

My 2016 was doing the same thing. The blower would ramp up and down randomly. It was struggling to keep up at times. I replaced it and all was fine afterwards.👍🏼

I bought a new blower motor online and put it in and it’s as good as new! Thank you!
