There are two star-drive screws on each end of the resistor that need to be removed and the resistor will come out. There is a connector that has to be undone also. FYI - resistor is located underneath the glovebox near the firewall. If you purchase a $20 repair book at local parts store, it explains in detail. Pretty simple process have a short that causes the wiring and connector to overheat and ultimately melt. If this is the case you will have to replace the connector. The connector is part of a wiring harness that is available through a Jeep dealership only (resistor only available at dealership too). To replace the entire wire harness would take a trained mechanic several hours (VERY LABOR INTENSIVE). Pretty much impossible for anyone else - the wiring harness connects MULTIPLE devises and is intertwined throught the dash. I have never asked what it would cost for the dealership to do this but I bet you would be shocked. I'm guessing $600-1000 (or more). The wiring harness and the resistor are around $250 (if I remember correctly) just for the parts. This problem occurs for me once a year. I just splice the connector without replacing the entire wiring harness and everything works fine for about 1 year. I have been lucky enough to find the parts at junkyards - most it costs is $10-25 - although I have to frequently call or physically check for them. If anyone knows about a common problem that would cause the short in the first place, I would appreciate hearing about it!!! Good luck - It's a jeep thing...I don't understand. I hope you never have to replace the radiator...ridiculous. :)

It is located under the dash on the passenger side. The blower is located on the right side and has a two wire connector, the resistor is to the left of the blower. It is held by two screws, and has a four pin connector. Disconnect the connector, unscrew the two screws, and the resistor drops out.

Look in the fuse box below the glove box on the passenger side in the door pillar. You will find a fuse and a relay there. If that does not fix the blower fan issue, check the post in fixing the blower motor and resistor module.
