About Heater Resistor Packs
A Jeep heater resistor pack is used to control the speed of the two blower fan motors. In some vehicles the heater resistor is also used to control the air conditioning in a vehicle. Some SUVs or vans have a separate heater resistor in the front of the vehicle and one in the rear as they have two heater systems in the vehicle. The pack is a useful buy for one of these vehicles.
If a heater resistor fails, you may find that the heater fan will no longer blow on one or all of its speeds. If the blower motor is causing problems, you could notice that using the vehicle’s heating or air conditioning system is noisy, which could be caused by a failing heater resistor.
When inspecting a failed heater resistor, you may notice some points on the resistor that are burnt. This could be caused by an unnatural amount of load on the heater resistor fan. This could be caused by insulation from around the fan being dragged in to the fan, causing it to struggle to turn freely. Failure can also be caused by the bearings of the fan becoming damaged, resulting in excessive draw.
- It's not something that you'll be able to find to buy, but there was a prototype of a Jeep made in 1945 that could fly. The vehicle was called the Hafner Rotabuggy, and it had blades like a helicopter.
- There were a lot of car firsts in the 1963 Jeep Wagoneer. Dubbed by Jeep as the first-ever luxury SUV, the Wagoneer came with independent front suspension (a first for a 4x4), as well as the first overhead-cam six-cylinder truck engine.
- There's a whole sport called Jeeping, and it's been running since 1953. It's a trek that usually takes place along the Rubicon Trail in the US, and 'Jeep Jamborees' are now so popular that Jeep even attends the events, often bringing new concept vehicles to show off.
- Jeep has had eight different owners to date. The current owners of the iconic brand are Fiat-Chrysler, but the name has been owned by recognisable names like Renault and AMC.
- The original Jeep was designed in only two days! The prototype took 75 days to be built and then delivered to the US army that had commissioned the vehicle.
