Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2012 Dodge Durango when I start the car the blower turns off and then on about 4 times and then runs normal after that.  Doesn't matter what setting its on (high or low)

Check your blower resistor next does sound like a bad resistor


If this happens when starting, you probably have a bad alternator and maybe a weak battery. Upon starting, the starter takes a LOT of current and after the engine starts, your alternator is having trouble keeping up current to accessories. After the engine has run for a few seconds, the system sort of fixes itself, but one day, it won't. Go to acar parts store and have the alternator and battery tested.
