If you have a right hander it's on the passenger side.....or when you're sitting in the car, the left hand side.....Remove the side panel from under the dash.....That will uncover the center located heat exchange unit.....Look very close to the fire wall....Thats the plating separating the engine from the cabin.....What you're looking for, is a small unit which is fitted into the housing at the angled corner of the unit.....If memory serves, it's fitted in with a tongue at one side and a screw on the other....The electrical connection will guide you to the unit.....

keep cool....or warm

look for the blower motor resistor under the dash on the passenger side, in the air duct you should see a plug with about 5 wires connected to the resistor.

You can also take a paper clip (can mess things up, but I use it) And have it touch the 7th & 19th pin inside the service port.
