Disconnect the battery negative cable. !!!Power is still on when ignition switch off!!!

I have Olds Intrigue 2000. Blower control resistor (Controller) located behind the

blower 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 out

when 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.

It is under the dashboard against the firewall. You have to remove the blower motor first by folding yourself up into a ball, but it can be done.
