I did this job on a 1999 Grand Prix, and I believe the location is the same for the 98 year model. First of all you will have to remove the blower motor itself. It is located on the passenger side floor board below the glove compartment, up against the firewall. It is an awkard job and I found that what worked best for me was to lay on my back with my head up against the center console. Once you have removed the 4 screws that mount the blower, disconnect the electrical connection and remove the blower. It is a tight fit around a wiring harness that is in the same area, but with some effort, it will come out. The blower motor resistor is located inside the duct work where the blower motor goes. There are 3 screws holding it in place, one of which is hard to see. A mechanics mirror comes in handy to locate the hidden screw. I would also advise that you replace the blower motor along with the resistor so that you don't have to go through the aggrevation later. I bought both parts through the local Auto Zone, which was much cheaper than the dealers cost. Both worked just fine. Good luck.

If the blower only works on high the blower resistor is most likely the problem and should be replaced. On rare occasions if the car has blown the resistor more than once the blower motor shouuld be replaced.

The blower motor resistor is located right beside the blower motor which is on the right side of the instrument panel. You'll have to remove the lower insulator panel to see it. Remove the wiring connector and I believe there is 3 screws that hold the resistor in

easiest to pull blower motor then you can get at resistor, best to have a flexible extension (not a swivel) and you can access the bolts easier

Blower on your 2000 Grand Prix only works on high you have checked blower motor resister fuses and switch All ok What now?

Well it is apparent that all is not ok. The speed of the blower motor is controlled by the blower motor speed control switch and the blower motor resistor pack. One of those two items is your problem. I would bet the blower motor resistor pack is defective. The only way to know for sure is to replace it.

You need to change the blower motor resistor (under the passenger side glove-compartment). i have a 1997 Grand Prix with the same problem. A dealer can get it done but cheaper if you get the resistor from AutoZone, etc and have a mechanic or yourself change it.

Where is the 1997 Grand Prix blower motor resistor?

It's on the passenger side of the car.Behind the glovebox,you will have to take the glovebox off the dash.then you will have to lay on the floor on your back,looking upward by the firewall you will see the blower motor.look behind the blower motor you will see a wire harness conected to the blower motor.Thats the resistor,after you un hook it from the blower motor you will have to take the blower motor out.It's held in by three screws,once you have taken the blower motor out,follow the wire harness that you've taken off the blower will then see the resistor with much effort its easy to get out,it's held in with two screws,you will only take one screw out to get the resistor out.

How do you if replacing the blower motor resistor on a 2002 Impala is necessary and what is the price range on a resistor?

I had to replace a b.m resistor on my 05 Pont. Grand Prix and it was not that difficult and saved me a bunch of money. As fas as I can tell, and as in my case, if your blower motor is staying on high (even with the key out) then you have a bad resistor. The cost of mine for the 05 was $70. It was actually cheaper at the dealership and was in stock. It was really simple to replace. On the Grand Prix it was located under the glovebox. It's not very big and should have a wiring harness running into it and then from the resistor to the blower motor. There were two screws holding it in and just the one harness to re-attach. If you have anymore questions let me know.

remove the cloth kick panel under the passenger side dash the blower motor can be seen once you do this remove screws and replace may be a good idea to consider the Blower Motor Resistor as well pn #89018643 if you have atc (auto temp control) blower motor pn #52489322 these are available from GM
