Check the electrical connector to the blower - it's under the dash below the glove box. It's exposed - you don't have to remove anything. Fidgety passengers have been known to damage the connector.

Hi progenius1,

Sorry to hear about this! If you end up deciding to visit a certified dealership for further diagnosis I'd be happy to offer assistance if needed. Just send us a PM with your VIN and let me know.

I'm having the same issue, where randomly the motor will not work at all. I have replaced the blower motor and that did not fix the problem. We have taken it to the dealership and they couldn't find anything at the time since it was working. But no less than 24 hours later it goes out again.
has anyone had a similar issue? I have searched and I know possibly on the older models the failure is at the ignition switch is this the same issue with my 2013 Ram 1500 sport?

It does not have the push button start.

You're equipped with auto HVAC or the manual setup? The auto setup is sweet but the controllers can get funky after a few or four yrs. The manual equipment tends to be more reliable. I don't suspect the ignition switch is a factor cuz you'd be having other issues too.

Same issue on my 2016 ram 2500
Thought at first blower motor because it was noisy, but no luck.
Still does it randomly.
Everytime I go to test it with a power probe or a test light it starts working again. Currently looking into the harness connector at the blower motor. When I push on it it seems to work. But grabbing wire and wiggling does not.when not working it still has it power and ground at connector.so waiting until it happens again and I'm going straight for the connector with a pen or something small to push up on the wire in the connector next time it happens.
