I don't know about the '98, but I just changed my '95 and it was simple. Just pull out the wiring harness, then get under the resistor with a flat-head screwdriver and it pops right out. Push the new one in and plug in the wiring harness. Bam

On a 98 contour underneath the glove box you have to pop the clips out and drop the carpet. There you will see the blower motor if you stay if you follow the blower motor housing over to the right towards the firewall you will see a little rectangle piece with 1 or 2 tork head screws just with a plug connected to it. pop the plug off and unscrew the screws and you might have to use a flat head but it will pop right out....mike

In 1999, Ford had a recall program. In some of the affected vehicles, the blower switch or resistor may develop increased resistance which could potentially prevent the blower from operating on some speeds.


Certain 1995 through 1998 model year Ford Contour and Mercury Mystique vehicles built from July 1, 1995 through December 31, 1997.

Go to http://www.fordcontour.org/recalls/99m07.htm for a complete description of replacement and parts.

As a note, I only replaced the resistor and blower switch and not the pigtails. I assume they'll go out again but it was only $15 for the switch and $40 for the resistor from autozone or checker auto vs. $90 for everything from a Ford Dealer.

How you change the blower motor resistor in Nissan maxima 2002?

To change the blower motor resistor in a 2002 Nissan Maxima, locate the blower motor resistor under the glove compartment on the passenger side of the vehicle. There is a clip that is depressed and then the resistor will slide out. Remove both ends of the resistor and then replace with the new resistor.

You will need to change the blower motor resistor by finding it near the air duct system. You will take the old resistor off and replace it the same way.

Can't change the air flow in my 2004 cavalier no matter what setting the switch is on?

Do you mean the blower motor? Need more info to answer. Could be a bad ground that is causing the fan switch to be hot all the time, or a blown blower motor resistor. Does it turn off when you turn it to the off position? If so and it only works on one setting, its the blower motor resistor.

Why doesn't my heater or AC blow any air at all when on any setting in my 1998 Ford Contour blower motor isn't broken and the fuse is good?

this means that your blower motor resistor is out. it is located right behind the blower motor itself. its small with one connector piece with wires and one 6-pointed (star) screw. pretty easy to change out. the part costs $25

How do you change the resister for the blower motor on a 2000 Contour?

I have a 2000 ford contour. My blower worked only on high for a few months. Now doesn't work at all. I changed resistor myself.(One proud female by the way) You drop the glove compartment, remove carpet(should have 2 plastic pieces that just pop out). Resistor is located to left of blower near fire wall. One star screw. Just plug in harness and reattach.

How do you change a blower motor resistor for a 2000 Chevy S10?

First locate the resistor, it is under the hood, on the firewall, passenger side, close to the blower motor. Unplug the wire connection and remove the three small screws holding it in place, then remove the resistor.

How change and where located the AC heater blower resistor on 2004 Chevy Colorado which works on number 4 setting but not on number 1 or 2 or 3 setting?

It is not the resistor or blower motor, it is a ground box under your hood on your passenger side fender well. look beside the airfilter box and there will be a little black box with a bunch of wires going to it. wiggle those wires when your blower shuts off, it will come back on. I fixed mine by finding the ground wire that goes to the blower motor in that black box and cutting the wire off the box then putting a ring terminal on it and bolting it back up to the fender well. no problem since. you will have to replace the resistor as well as the blower motor wiring harness because it has burnt the plug on the wiring harness due to intermittent grounding. The resistor is located on the passenger side under the dash. It is next to the blower motor and has a single plug going into it. Recommend replacing the plug with the resistor.

My blower stopped working could this be the motor blower resistor or should I just replace the blower motor?

Depends on the year. You could try the resistor first since it is the cheapest. If not that, then check the fuses, relays and wiring to the control head. Then lastly, change the motor.

it is under the glovebox area. it removes out of the blower housing.

Why your 1997 marquis not working on low after you change resistor?

Assuming you are asking about the HVAC blower motor, check the condition of the switch and the electrical connection at the switch. And, if the original resistor was burned out the cause is usually because of the blower motor drawing too much current. If so, replace the blower motor or you will burn out another resistor soon.

How do you change the heater resistor on a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am?

the heater resistor is located under the passenger sides dash (near the passengers feet). there is an access panel that you pull off. some have clips holding it on, some have screws. the blower resistor is located in the blower box. the resistor itself you will not be able to see, only the connector. usually there is about 5 wires on this connector and they are in a row. disconnect the connector, there is usually 1 or 2 screws that hold the resistor in the blower box. remove screws, remove resistor from the blower box. reverse procedure for reassembly. .
