How do you know if your blower motor is bad or if you need to just change the resistor?
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.
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. Read More

99 olds cutlass The blower doesnt work for the heat or ac The air comes out hot cold just no blower?
Blown fuse, bad motor, bad blower motor switch, or a defective Blower Motor Resistor Pack. Read More
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. Read More
If your blower is working on some speeds but not all, more than likely the problem is a defective Blower Motor Resistor Pack. The switch rarely goes bad. Just a thought. Read More
If the blower motor quits working after an extended period of time and then afterwards start working again work could the problem be the blower motor resistor?
Could have just overheated Read More

The blower motor resistor in the us models of the Ford Focus is behind the glove box, against the firewall, to the left of the actual blower motor.....my stock one was blue. it is only held in by one screw....just unscrew it and pull it out. They are like 15 dollars from the dealer. Read More
It is located just below the glove box, forward of the dash, and is fastened into the the blower motor case. It may be seen by looking under the dash as well as by removing the glove box. No tools are required to remove the glove box. The electrical connecter to the blower motor resistor is rectangular in shape, and is oriented horizontally. The hardest part of removing the resistor is unplugging the connector. Read More

Keep in mind if the new resistor burns out in a short time, next time replace the blower motor also. A failing blower motor can be the cause of burning out the resistor. Read More
No. The blower motor is the motor that turns the fan that blows the air through the vents inside your vehicle whether its blowing for the ac or the heater. The blower motor RESISTOR controls the speed in which your blower motor turns. The resistor will be located either in the engine compartment, usually in the firewall ( the metal wall separating your engine from your cab). In newer vehicles the resistor is located behind… Read More
it is just on the outer case of hvac module,and connected with wiring harness and near to the blower motor of hvac Read More
we had the same problem it ended up to be a vacuum line underneath the van Hey Michael=Check the resistor block on the evaporator case. Good luck, Joe I would start with the switch it should be the easiest and cheapest. Blower motor resistor most likely. [I agree with the blower motor resistor being the most likely cause. It is usually located next to the blower motor on most of these vans. Just follow the… Read More
behind the blower motor. to take off the blower motor its on the passenger side under the glove box but above the floor. unclamp the casing where the floor light is. then theres the blower just unsrew the three srews. unhook the hose, unclamp it then then take it out Read More
The blower resistor is typically the problem with manual HVAC when the blower switch only operates at the high setting (4). This is because the three (slower) settings go through this resistor pack to slow down the blower motor. First find the blower motor. It is on the passenger side of the engine compartment attached to the firewall and you can easily confirm it by simply turning on the blower to full and listening when… Read More
For the automatic climate control A/C unit: Standing in front of the car, the resistor electronic assembly will be ontop of, and to the left, of the blower motor housing, (Follow the blower motor wires), and also just below the relay rail on the firewall, it has 2 separate electrical connectors and is held in place by three screws.

Where is the blower motor resistor on a 2000 Ford Explorer 4.0 the wires from the blower motor go into the harness not to the resistor as normal?
Note to all: If you have Automatic Temp Control (electronic temp setting), there is no resistor: just the blower control module (which you'll see just to lower right of blower fan, 2 screws hold it in, pop off the fan and you'll see it). The stores will sell you a resistor or condensor, or even a switch, but it has none of the above!!!! (I spent a week looking everywhere for what the stores were… Read More
You probably need a blower motor. Check the Hot electrical feed to the motor. If you have replaced the resistor block you know where the motor is located (just to the right) It is easy to replace and can be purchased everywhere, including a junk yard. Remember some Resistor Blocks fail because the motor is old and drawing to many amps. Read More
Its located either behind the glove box or just underneith it Read More
more than likely will be the blower motor resistor has went out. Read More
If the heat air conditioner blower motor only works on the high setting on a 2.2 liter 1996 Sunfire and the other 2 settings do not work what could be wrong?
There is a Blower Motor resistor that is located at the bottom back of the heater box on the passenger side cab. The blower motor plugs into it so that will help locate it. If the resistor goes you lose the lowest fan setting first and eventually the high fan setting will cease to function. Simple to repair just a little time consuming to do because of the limited space to work in. You need… Read More
there is no fuse its either the relay on the side wall in the drivers side front fender thats bad or its the hi low fan control dial in the dash or it can be what is called the blower motor resistor wich is just to the right of the blower motor itself the resistor controls the speed of the fan i think aswell so if its blowing but only a lil its probally the… Read More
How do you replace a blower motor resistor and the pigtail that goes with it on a 2003 jeep grand Cherokee?
There are two screws holding it in. It is located underneath the glove box. Now Depending on if you have manual controls or auto controls will determine what you have to do. For auto controls the blower motor resistor gets plugged in with 3 wires (i believe its red black and orange) and then has two wires coming out of it that plug directly into the blower motor(red and black). For manual controls it is… Read More
2002 Hyundai elantra not blowing heat or ac fuse is good jumped the wires to the blower motor and it works but doesnt work when using the dial 1-4 on the heat settings any ideas?
I think you have problem with the blower resistor. Please follow the procedure to check. * remove the connector to the blower motor. * use voltmeter to check the voltage. * connect one probe to the ground and the other probe to the 3.0R/w of the motor supply. * turn on the the blower motor with dial, you should read supply voltage, 12Vdc. * if you have positive voltage at the 3.0R/w then you should… Read More
You replaced the blower motor on 97 Mercury Tracer and it still doesn't come on What should you try next?
Was the blower motor defective, or where you just guessing. Did you apply 12 volts to the old motor to see if it was bad? Did you check the Fuse. It may be a defective blower motor resistor pack which is a common problem on this car. Read More
What would cause the interior fan to have just one speed would the most likely cause be the switch or the blower motor itself?
neither,blower resistor or blower module controls fan speeds. Read More
I am the owner of a 1998 gmc safari awd & my blower motor quit working on high also. You need to replace the blower motor resistor. The part is a dealer item only just go to your local dealer and give them year make & model of van then tell them ya are wanting the blower motor resistor. Read More
Yes, bad blower motor but could be just a bad resistor (blown fuse). Maybe both need to be replaced. You can test the motor by jumping it. Read More
