Use a jumper wire from the battery + (pos) terminal to the positive on the blower motor, and run a - (Ground) wire from ground on the motor, to chassis or frame.

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.

How do you replace the blower motor resistor?

I do not know what vehicle you are referring to but I just replaced one on a 1996 Nissan Sentra because the only speed that was working on the blower motor was 'high'. Underneath the glove box was a couple of screws that came out and the new resistor was put in. Two screws and done......... Most blower motor resistors are located close to the blower motor.

Where is the blower motor resistor in a 1996 Suzuki Sidekick?

On a 1998, it's on the blower motor itself. Good bet it's the same on the 1996. Open the glovebox, push the tabs on the sides so you can open it further. You can see the blower motor. The resistor is the thing the wires attach to. Unplug the connector, and the resistor comes right out with (I believe) just one screw.

Disconnect the battery negative cable. !!!Power is still on when ignition switch off!!!I have Olds Intrigue 2000. Blower control resistor (Controller) located behind theblower motor. Very close to the firewall, and it is a pain in the neck to get there.Using 5.5 mm. socket remove the blower first. (3 screws are holding the blower)Using the same socket (5.5 mm) remove one visible screw which holds the resistor.You will have to loosen two other screws located between the resistor and firewall. You don't need to remove them completely, just loosen them! Resistor just slides outwhen they loose.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Disconnect the battery negative cable.Remove the RH instrument panel insulator retainers. Adjust the carpet for access.Disconnect the courtesy lamp from the instrument panel insulator by turning 1/4 turn counterclockwise.Remove the RH instrument panel insulator.Disconnect the electrical connectors from the blower motor resistor.Disconnect the blower motor resistor electrical connector from the blower motor.Loosen, do not remove, both forward screws. The blower motor resistor opening is slotted as access is extremely limited.Remove the rearward screw.Remove the blower motor resistor.
