On the passenger side of the vehicle, under the dash is the blower moter, there are two wires running from it, the one running to the resistor is mounted on the firewall. you remove the two screws with a star shaped screw driver, unplug the old resistor and plug in the new one...takes about 15 minutes.

open your glovebox, release the hydraulic arm from the right side of the glovebox. Next, lower the glovebox by pulling in left side. In front of you is the blower motor. To the left of the blower motor is a set of wires that are plugged into the Resistor. Unplug and unscrew to remove Resistor.

The blower motor speed resistor is burned out. You can replace only the resistor but the resistor probably burned out because the blower motor is going bad. If you want to fix it for good, replace both the blower motor and blower motor speed resistor.
