Sounds like you have a broken mode door or recirc door.

A switch and resistor are two completely different things. When resistors go out, you'll only have high speed blower operation. Blend and mode door failures are common in Ram trucks.

Don't have that info for ya . Sorry . If it's the blend air door that needs to be replaced you can check around and find it on the aftermarket I'm sure .

It's going to depend on which door(s) need repairing.

on the passenger side, unbolt the motor and remove. stick your hand up the housing and feel if the recirculation door is jacked up. if it is you'll have a fun 5-1/2 hours ahead of you on the plus side, the door kit is only 25 bucks
