Big savings!
The fan in my 03 Dakota completely stopped working. The resistor had melted to the harness and I had to replace everything. The local dealership wanted close to $200 for the parts, thanks to 1aauto I was able to get the same parts at a SMALL fraction of the price. Installation was simple and now the fan blows as it should. Just in time for subzero Colorado temperatures!!!
